Fremont, CA: Hiring talent that fits into an organization can be challenging and a competitive process at the same time. Every organization looks to hire skilled professionals who understand the business thoroughly, are a cultural fit, and add value to the company. Over the years, the talent scenario and HR paradigm have evolved significantly, with data becoming an essential dimension in recruiting candidates.

 

Utilization of Technology to Streamline the Interview Process

The new and changing trends in hiring have brought about some much needed significant changes in the hiring process. Offline video interviews, chatbot-enabled interviews, AI-enabled profile shortlisting, personality assessments, and utilizing big data are some of the new trends in the hiring process. This has given interviewers with time to take on in-depth conversational interviews and to enrich the human factor in interviews. With most of the repetitive work being redirected towards technology, interviews are becoming more personalized.

The Requirement of Different Skill Sets in the IoT Industry

Resilience and versatility are the two most sought after traits in the industry today. Organizations are on the lookout for candidates that can wade through and succeed in uncertain environments. The Internet of Things (IoT) is a unique mix of two fundamentally different industries, mechanical and connectivity. The gestation period for projects in the mechanical sector usually ranges from months to years. On the contrary, projects in the connectivity field have a gestation period of not more than a few days. These projects require skill sets that involve rapid changing.

The diverse nature of these two industries can give rise to a lot of uncertainties when the two sectors collaborate. As a result, the kind of talent required to manage such a volatile field must show excellent resilience, with the ability to learn from observation, learn from mistakes, and trust in instincts. The candidates must have the ability to execute things on the ground with versatility while exhibiting a hunger to think strategically.
