Database without borders –  how to build a talent pool of IT professionals from multiple countries?

The dynamic market of technological companies requires increasingly flexible solutions when it comes to identifying and attracting talents. The unprecedented growth in the volume of IT projects, the expansion of software and outsourcing companies, requires a new interpretation of the model of working with the best in this sector. There is a constant need for specialists, who in turn deliver high standards of service, but they are few in number. Bulgaria is one of the most preferred investment destinations for development, but negative demographic growth does not allow the labor market to respond to the colossal number of IT specialists that are in demand. There is practically no concept of unemployment in the IT sector. Talents in the field clearly define their preferences for a remote work model. What's more, they often turn down project proposals if the employer doesn't offer a work-from-anywhere option. Kristina Mileva, Team Manager "Sales & Business Development" at Manpower Bulgaria, shares more about the future of the IT professions now that borders are disappearing and the ocean of talents is growing.

As our business rests upon people, all those who work in consulting within HR industry can testify that the service of candidate recruitment and selection was rarely a completed and clearly defined service, and today this "rarely" means usually never, or, at best, hardly ever.
