Full stack development happens to be one of the best career prospects today. It comes with great growth opportunities and a decent full stack developer salary. But how much does a full stack developer earn and what does the salary depend on?

To give you a full understanding of the subject, we’ve put together up-to-date, industry-specific data from reputable sources including PayScale, Indeed, Pearson Frank, and ZipRecruiter. Read More

Which software engineer jobs pay the most

By | Hiring Statistics, IT recruitment, Recruiting Tips, tech trends | 3 Comments

GDPR recruitment

[INFOGRAPHIC]: 2018 GDPR recruitment implications – get ready!

By | Hiring Statistics, Human Resources, Infographic, IT recruitment | 2 Comments

As of 25 May 2018, companies who collect personal data of EU residents have to become compliant with the GDPR (the General Data Protection Regulation). The 2018 GDPR recruitment implications are manifold and they involve giving individuals more control over their personal data, as well as simplifying the data protection environment.

HR and recruitment professionals rely heavily on personal data which they collect and store. In fact, decisions made throughout the recruitment process are based on personal information such as education or professional experience.  What is more, the EU GDPR places the burden of compliance on the organization collecting and/or storing the data. For that reason, it’s in their hands to ensure compliance before the deadline arrives. 

We’ve put together data on the effect the 2018 GDPR will have on recruitment and presented it in a handy infographic you can find below. Let’s get started! Read More
