Job search platforms: companies choose
Let's look at where foreign companies most actively search for employees and place vacancies.
If you are a developer and are looking for a job with a company in the United States or the European Union, we recommend using LinkedIn
in the first place. Both we and our clients, as well as other agencies, look for employees here most actively. This social media is convenient in its focus, people come there to look for jobs and build business contacts, which means that in principle they are open to suggestions. With the help of recruiting services is easy to find interesting candidates, of which there really are many. It is worth noting that the cost of using services and Premium accounts allows you to do without a large investment and is available to freelance recruiters and small companies with limited budgets. It is no exaggeration to say that there is literally everything here and you can find a job and a project for every taste.
The largest job portals for each country, like hh.ru
for Russia and Djinni
for Ukraine, also deserve your attention. These resources pay serious money so that even a recruiter who knows nothing about the country's staffing market can easily find them. However, foreign companies rarely enroll at hh.ru themselves. Most of the foreign job openings here are from agencies. But in Djinni, there are both internal companies and Western companies.
These sites have large candidate bases, which also attracts the attention of employers. Now the market is active and no large company or agency works only on incoming responses — recruiters will look for candidates themselves. They select suitable profiles or resumes from the database and contact programmers offering open positions. And the more challenging the position, the more important it is to have a large candidate site base. Of the disadvantages of these resources is the fairly high cost, so small companies, startups, and private agents are not always able to afford them. If you are looking for work in large and highly profitable projects, then this is exactly your option.
Groups/channels in social media such as Facebook
are also an interesting way to look for jobs in Western companies. Here you can find unique job ads that are not posted anywhere else. This is often where small and "conceptual" projects look for employees. You can also find offers from major companies and agencies there. For example, we have a list of more than 300 groups of different fields in which we publish certain jobs. There are many opportunities for free placement in social media, which also makes the resource available and demanded by all who are limited in the budget for one reason or another. But it's also a great chance for recruiters to reach an audience that doesn't like LinkedIn. Telegram is also a good way to contact those who do not want to be seen by their current employer. If you want to be part of a team and not just an employee, there may be interesting options.
Today the market needs you more than you need it. Obviously. The growth of the it-industry, the widespread penetration of technology into everyone's life has created a huge number of jobs. More and more money every day has provided the IT-sector of the economy with high salaries. Nevertheless, you don't become an experienced developer with deep technical knowledge in a couple of months. There is a shortage of staff, and for a while this gap will still be relevant.
The coming months to a year is a great time to look for a job. Especially interesting options are now waiting for professionals who, in addition to classical programming and writing code, are versed in any narrow areas, whether it be economics or technology. If you know how to achieve a business goal with your code and analyze user requirements for the software your company creates, it is a significant advantage and a reason to raise your price.
Also note that not all companies this year have kept up with rising salary expectations. Many of them create a budget in advance and are not always able to adjust it during the year. But for 2022, we can safely expect a higher salary range.
