Yesterday we had the co-founder and COO of GeekHunter, Yunita Anggraeni speaking about How to Win Talent War in IT 🙂
We had the founder and CEO of GeekHunter before, and lucky enough to get another woman in IT to share about their successful start up to us 🙂
Anggra has lots of experience before joining GeekHunter, just take a look at how many things she has got involved
Ken Ratri Iswari – The CEO and Yunita Anggraeni – The COO, is a great team 🙂 They started GeekHunter together.
Now GeekHunter has grown to 9 personnels (this is not the complete pic)
A shocking statistics is the number of the unemployed. Including the fresh grads.
Meanwhile on the other side, companies have difficulties in finding programmers
In the fast growing market
and the global invasion
then it is common for hijacking the best talents (read: programmers)
So why are you still not getting the job you want?
And how to get the awesome job at startup?
#1 Know your strength. Read the map, and find your expertise.
#2 Keep learning
#3 Stay up to date. You should have the ability to learn new things quickly.
#4 Create cool portfolio
#5 Are you sure you are working in the right company?
#6 Build your network
Increase your online presence
Watch your attitude!
Don’t be a job hopper
Keep in touch with the head hunter
And now we start changing perspective to the startup (who’s going to hire the talents).
Why are you still not getting the right talent?
#1 You should know exactly what you need
#2 Calculate the timeline
Prepare the budget
Check out, probably the talent you are trying to find is already working on your company, only on the wrong division
Check the happiness index in your company
So what is GeekHunger actually do?
These are what GeekHunter do
GeekHunter helps to provide the problems of the jobseeker and the company hiring
Startups usually have budget problems to hire talents with competency and experience
And the number of freelancers has grown fast
Before startups running out of budget, it should carefully use the money
A company should really now what they need, because probably this talent you are looking for doesn’t even exist
GeekHunter has been helping lots of companies and programmers!
And it has more than 30K programmers
The Vision and Mission of GeekHunter is to be Indonesia #1 IT Talent pool in South East Asia, or even better: in Asia.
Well, is this true? LOL
This is how to contact GeekHunter
And this is us! 🙂
Some of us still continued the discussion until 2 hours later 😀 That’s really what codeMeetUp() was created for, to let people collaborate and elaborate 🙂
