How to Hire a Superstar Engineer

If you are tasked with hiring the best engineers, you may want to think about the approach you are using. Engineering skills are in high demand, and you will need to think outside of the box if you want to hire the best engineers in the business. If you are ready to find the right engineer for your business, try keeping some of the following tips in mind during the recruiting process.

Ask Post-Interview Questions

Do you know why prospective employees are turning down your job offers? If you don’t, you may want to invest the time and resources in finding out. Conducting follow-up interviews about the initial interview may sound crazy to some individuals, but these follow-up questions can give insight into your candidate’s decisions. Whether you ask follow-up questions via email or over the phone, be sure to ask the right questions. If you don’t feel like asking a plethora of invasive questions, a simple “Why did you turn down this job?” or something of the sort will suffice.  

Hire a Recruiting Specialist

Have you invested an adequate amount of resources into finding the best engineers in your area? If not, now would be the time to consider hiring a recruiting expert if you aren’t seeing the results you want. Engineers are in high demand, and many have multiple job offers to choose from. For this reason, hiring a recruiting expert with a strong background in engineering employment may be your best chance at turning your luck around.  

Utilize Employee Networks

Many employers underestimate the value of networking, especially when it comes to engineering. However, if you have current tech and engineering employees, you may want to ask them if they know anyone in need of a job. Keep in mind, your engineering employees probably know other engineers from school or previous jobs, and if you don’t tap into their networks, you may be overlooking an opportunity to recruit other high-performing workers.
