RALEIGH, N.C., July 28, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Tech service companies are unnecessarily limiting the scope of the services they advertise. ITJobMatch, a tech-focused job board, is offering these firms a new avenue for lead generation that will expand that scope. That is, advertising billable employees as anonymous job seekers in a forum where employers are already seeking their technical skills.
For years, indicators have shown that more employers are turning away from full-time, "W2" employees. As employers warm up to contract labor, independent contractors are flourishing. Service companies must put their own resources into competition with independents in order to capitalize on this trend. And that means building complete employee skill profiles and advertising these individuals against competing independents and job seekers.
ITJobMatch is the only information technology job board to fully embrace service companies and their employees into its database. Before ITJobMatch, service companies could only advertise the list of services they provide as an overall organization. There was simply no way to promote individual employees while maintaining control of incoming leads and protecting employee identity.
This service could not come at a better time. Social media and other communication technologies have rapidly increased the pace of recruitment activities. In order to propose a contract solution to a company in need of tech talent, IT service companies need to be faster than the recruiting process. What they need now, more than ever, is to have their own resources' skills consistently displayed where employers in immediate need are searching.
In addition to providing a new channel for leads, the process of advertising employees as individuals opens new opportunities. While service companies generally advertise a defined scope of services, their roster of tech professionals inevitably possesses skills beyond the defined scope. With ITJobMatch, tech service companies have an opportunity to move beyond their wheelhouse. Projects that would not ordinarily be brought to their attention may be a perfect fit for a specific employee to take on.
ITJobMatch recognizes that trends toward contracting disrupt traditional business models and change recruiting behaviors. This change impacts employers, recruiters, service companies, job seekers, and contractors. But by embracing the entire technical service sector, and bringing everyone into the fold, ITJobMatch accomplishes a very simple goal. Match talent to job openings based on the best possible skill fit, and break down the barriers that often conceal some of the best matches.
