An introduction to the technology we're using, built in-house or SaaS, while trying to achieve growth and better efficiency in IT recruitment.
For Human Direct, 2018 has been the best year this far.
A lot of great things happened, many accomplishment, events and fun celebrations.
Here is our recap of 2018.
Winter is coming they say, but meanwhile we’re mid November, which is the coziest month of the year. Not too cold, yet cold enough to stay inside with a pumpkin spice latte to keep you warm. Or you can skip the latte. Either way, this is the perfect time of the year to get tucked in blankets and have a good read or binge watching Netflix or enjoying a fun indoor activity. Speaking of which, there are some quite fun activities you can do in and around Cluj-Napoca.
And we refer to IT heaven or destination of choice, we mean on both sides of the outsourcing IT companies and native IT professionals aka programmers and developers. While for most people, Romania is a 2nd world country that plays little to no interest, major tech companies from around the world have seen the hidden gems this country has to offer IT-wise. For instance, the US giant Fitbit’s acquisition of the Romanian Vector Watch company at the beginning of last year comes as a confirmation.
For those of you who don’t know us yet, we are a Cluj based IT recruitment company with 7+ years of recruiting. Over the years, we’ve helped major IT companies from Romania and over the border build up their team of talented developers and programmers here in Cluj. And we’re as passionate about IT recruiting as we were on day one.
The last weekend of August marked an important cultural event that has been held annually in Cluj-Napoca for the past 9 years. We're referring to The Hungarian Cultural Days of Cluj, a major cultural event of Transylvania, celebrating the diversity in ethnicity, traditions as well as music and other cultural aspects of the Hungarian community of Cluj-Napoca. So this year, we decided it's a great idea to join the event ourselves.
Remember, in the past blog I was saying something about new peeps in town? Well, this blog is fully dedicated to one of them. And since ladies first, we want you all to meet Réka Illyés, the new IT Recruitment Sourcer at Human Direct. Ta-da! We asked Réka to tell us a few things about herself, what she did before she got to Human Direct, and also a little about how she reached us and why she decided that IT recruitment is the right path for her. Here’s what she had to say.
Știm cât e de importantă interacțiunea personală și cât de mult contează pentru o relație de încredere. Vă așteptăm în perioada 23-26 August pe Blvd. Eroilor, la standul nostru, să ne cunoaștem și să discutăm despre munca pe care noi o derulăm zi de zi și joburile pe care le avem deschise pentru piața de IT.
So it happened. Lia Mihuț, the mother of dragons (GOT reference), this lovely lady who’s helped Human Direct grow into what it is today, marked her 5th year with us. Lia was and still is, the team coordinator that has always had inspiring ideas, a load of determination and passion for psychology and HR.
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.
