Working in one of the most progressive and changing areas, we understand how important it is to take part in its development, not only recruiting outstanding people for outstanding companies but also working for the good of the community.
We constantly strive to increase our contribution to the industry, and we do this in many ways: we help novice specialists in finding a job or launch a special tech product with preferential terms for startups.
In any case, we do our best not only to provide the best service on the market but also to influence the entire IT community. Read more about our steps in the article.
When clients contact us at Lucky Hunter, at the very first stage of communication, we share knowledge about the state of the IT market. We tell potential clients about the specifics of the vacancy they want to fill, share current salary ranges and give valuable advice on hiring specialists.
The information that we share in the process of communication does not guarantee that we will sign the contract with the company. This information, on the one hand, shows our expertise, but on the other hand, it helps companies fill vacancies faster, regardless of whether we work together on the job opening filling.
We believe that consultations are a very important part of our work. This is how we help good companies and worthy specialists find each other faster, implement cool IT ideas and launch cool products, which means making our world a bit better and more comfortable for life.
We often say that we provide a unique service on the market, and this is true. Most of the clients we work with come to us by recommendation, and candidates often write to us that our letters stand out from others, candidates want to open them, read them and, finally, dip their toe into new positions.
Such feedback proves that our approach works. At the same time, we are not among the companies that talk about their unique ways of working, but keep the details under our hat. This reduces the level of our credibility and does not contribute to the development of the industry.
Therefore, we try to talk as much as possible about recruiting, give advice and tips on various platforms - from Habr to TEDx and Forbes. In addition, very soon we plan to launch a series of training courses for novice IT recruiters. We are sure that the more people who master our recruitment methodology, the happier IT employers and candidates will be.
Research is an important part of any sphere.
Thanks to research, specialists receive up-to-date information about the state of the market, can construct forecasts for the future and choose better recruitment strategies. Many companies conduct IT research on a paid basis, as well as our Lucky Hunter agency, but at the same time, we allocate time to conduct our own IT market research. So, for example, we recently have learned about what needs prevail among IT specialists today, how they relate to test assignments, how many selection stages they prefer, and much more.
Now we are actively distributing the survey among IT recruiters and HR specialists in order to help companies and candidates better understand each other and be on the same page.
Back in the early days of Lucky Hunter, we launched an IT project that helps both startups to launch their cool products and young professionals dreaming of a cool job to find it.
By gathering these groups in one place - the Zero2Hero project, we helped a lot of worthy specialists find their dream jobs and launched several successful products. Despite the fact that not so long ago we decided to close Zero2Hero, we continue to help cool startups and motivated junior-level professionals on the basis of Lucky Hunter.
We provide startups with the maximum discount, help optimize recruiting processes, and in some cases help with the onboarding process.
We continue to actively look for and hire young professionals in various IT companies, despite the fact that this is very laborious and not entirely profitable work. The percentage of filling a vacancy for a junior specialist is much lower compared to middle senior-level positions, and the difficulty of filling such a vacancy is often a sequence higher.
Due to the fact that junior specialists do not have strong hard skills, they attract employers mostly by showing their soft skills, and this is quite difficult, given that it is not always possible to accurately determine the real skills of a specialist.
Nevertheless, realizing that there is a serious shortage in the IT industry, but at the same time there are a large number of smart and talented developers without work experience, we continue to fill vacancies for junior positions, and in such stories, we provide serious support to young professionals.
And, of course, we cannot fail to mention our CVHub service. Despite the fact that this is not a new solution on the market and we cannot boast of the rarest innovation, we still provide great help to the industry by creating such a product:
First of all, we have fairly budgeted prices, so almost any hiring manager can afford to buy access.
Secondly, in cooperation with the Skolkovo Foundation, we have created quite favourable conditions for startups, thus helping the most vulnerable category of employers to successfully find IT specialists.
Thus, realizing that one job to fill IT vacancies is not enough, we do everything to ensure that the IT community develops and becomes better. We believe that in the future we will have even more resources and opportunities to contribute to our precious IT field.
In the meantime, contact Lucky Hunter - we will fill even the rarest vacancy for you!
