The Resume System is Outdated
It was also never engineered to represent IT professionals. Resumes are proprietary per candidate, and an agency that formats it and slaps their logo on top doesn’t cut it. We include a candidate profile – tailored to your job – that speaks to why a candidate is a good fit for that position. The questions around this profile are based on decades of successful technical team building.
Years of Experience aren’t a true indicator of Skillset
The number of years a candidate has used a certain type of technology or tech platform is (at very best) a general indicator of skillset – yet it’s the main indicator used by almost every tech recruiter. At SpringbokIT, we’re more concerned with what a candidate has built, fixed, or improved.
A Resume is NOT a good Indicator of Cultural fit
We actively engage candidates to evaluate potential culture fit, personal skills, and possible upside – and learn about their motivations. If you print out a dozen resumes and attempt to rank candidates in terms of best culture fit for your organization you will fail. Our recruiters actively engage every candidate they represent over the phone and in person, it’s the only way to find out who we’re representing. You cannot accurately evaluate candidates without engagement.
