When a company begins its quest to find the top IT developers in Cape Town, there are many standard avenues that they can take. Social media is one, where a lot of companies do their recruitment, research and candidate vetting. Another popular place is job websites where these active job seekers place their profile for the benefit of other companies. Similarly, there are a lot of recruitment agencies where candidates, as well as companies, can provide their requirements in the hopes of making a connection.
However, there are certain untapped avenues that continue to be under-utilised primarily due to the lack of knowledge in those departments. They include the company’s job branding policy as well as the mobile recruitment process.
