    IT recruiters in Germany

    Before looking at IT recruitment trends in Germany, let's look at the main developments and their changing distribution. Experience and active search for candidates have become the very latest topic in recruitment in Germany. Corporate brands have become increasingly important in recent years and pose a greater challenge to recruiting employees than recruiting a professionally experienced workforce. Social media recruitment declined in 2015, but returned in 2016 and back again. Since 2013, the spread of candidate management systems has continued to increase, and employee referral programs have continued to be important since 2014.
    As noted above, the Applicant Management System and ATS are considered the most appropriate and most commonly used technology by Recruitment companies. The company also uses software to search for and find candidates, e.g. LinkedIn Recruiter or XING Talent Managers. XING is the equivalent/more than of LinkedIn for some DACH regions (Germany, Switzerland, and Austria). This solution is considered a shooting star in all technologies.
