This time we’re talking about Andreea’s b-day on July the 2nd. So this is what we did.

While in the beginning it was growing at the same pace as the other main Romanian IT centers from the province, Iaşi and Timişoara, Cluj-Napoca managed to take off and gain a considerable advantage over the past recent years.

As you may know by now, Cluj-Napoca is the most important IT hub in Romania, considered the capital of Romanian IT. However, except for some figures issued by the Department of Statistics in the Cluj County in 2011, there are little to no IT stats when it comes to the most demanded IT jobs, the IT trends in this sense or the profile of the IT candidates in Cluj-Napoca.

One of the most important legislation changes with regards to data protection and security and data bases in EU over the last decades. The regulation was adopted on 14 April 2016 and becomes enforceable on May 25th 2018. Yup, that is tomorrow. Hence we consider this to be the best opportunity to talk to you about our preparations that we did to be fully GDPR compliant. First off, we have to say that Csabi, our technical adviser dedicated a lot of his time since the beginning of the year to research, understand and find ways to implement the new EU regulations in Human Direct.

When looking for that right web developer to complete your team, it’s important to take a few things into consideration. And we’re speaking from our 6 years of experience in IT recruitment in Cluj. After all this time we’ve learned that hiring a bad apple in your company is the worst thing that you can do and it comes at a high cost. Especially when we’re talking highly qualified specialists like senior web developers or software engineers on key positions.

When we started out with Human Direct, we knew right away that the human factor was going to be the most important resource that we were going to work with. And when you specialize on a niche such as senior IT recruitment, the case is even more clear. That is because you get to meet highly trained and qualified people on a daily basis, people who know their worth and capabilities.
