Hiring the right IT staff

Technical skills aren’t the only criteria IT managers look at when hiring staff. How do you make sure a new employee has the right skillset to complement the team?

Respondents to a recent IT Manager channel poll spoke of the need for a mix of technical and ‘soft skills’ when hiring IT staff.

Communication skills that fitted in with the skillsets of other team members was the criteria one respondent argued were key. "They must fit into the team well to ensure that we can perform," the respondent argued.

Likewise, IT consultant Jeff Kemp said that he learned very early in his IT management career that focusing on satisfying the technical skills requirement above all else mostly resulted in disappointing recruitment.
