OPINION! GULP Recruiting Manager René Köles: This is how IT specialists find a job

René Köles from GULP tells in an interview how applicants are particularly strong in the IT industry and why skills and practical experience are more important than the application channel.
Best of HR –®

René Köles is recruiting manager at GULP, 39 years old. He serves clients and candidates from IT at GULP. The queries range from administration jobs to consulting projects for large companies to high-level management projects.

Mr Köles, many companies complain about professional defenses, especially in the IT sector. Why do IT specialists or engineers still need advice?

Computer scientists and engineers need advice, especially when there is a wide range of offers
to find out which job content and which employment model is right for you

A personal interview with a recruiter who is familiar with the respective professional field,
helps keep previous activities and personal objectives analyze and existing
Explore knowledge and interests. This is particularly important for young professionals,
but can also help experienced professionals who change again or take the step in
want to dare to be self-employed.

Where do you see the strengths of this target group?

The strengths of these target groups lie in their subject-specific skills, which are currently strong
be asked. In addition, IT professionals and engineers often also have a large private one
Affinity to the topics of software development as well as technical processing and implementation and
therefore continue to educate themselves.

In addition to the studies, some candidates have already implemented smaller projects or worked at the university eg for the chair. Through this work, they have already learned at an early stage to work on different topics in parallel, to act flexibly and to get involved quickly in the matter. And this is more in demand today than ever - especially in times of digitization.

And where do you think the weaknesses are, where should IT and technology graduates improve?

A convincing self-presentation is not easy, especially as a young professional, that's why
many applicants tend to be penniless. But it doesn't have to be, because everyone has something
To offer something special. Today, recruiters go a lot via social networks like XING or
LinkedIn and other job platforms such as monster. They screen the market very carefully when there is
It's about filling attractive positions.

Your own profile on the net is like a business card - especially if you want to work in this area. Therefore, it should be up to date and well maintained: a professional photo, no typos, meaningful and understandable phrasing and in the description of qualifications to use the respective buzz words.

In addition to technical know-how, soft skills are particularly important: the ability to work in a team, commitment and a communicative and open-minded personality always help to get into a Company or to insert a project positively.

What criteria should jobseekers look for when looking for a new job?

It is important to find a job that suits you. Because only then can the job be fun
make, bring satisfaction and thus motivate to work success-oriented. I often notice how relieved the candidates are when they notice that GULP really focuses on working out their strengths and preferences. There is no point in making decisions based on job title or salary.

The content and tasks, the personal environment and the development possibilities deserve an equal attention.

There is a lot of discussion about how to apply successfully: Per eMail, Online, mobile, with or without cover letter. Which procedure do you recommend?

It depends a lot on what is required. For example, if a company uses an online form on its website, it should be used and filled in as completely as possible. Will one Casting to eMail preferred, that should be noted. Basically
It is not the channel that matters, but the content:

  • a convincing, well-prepared one Curriculum vitae,
  • an individual cover letter, which shows why one fits the place,
  • and, if applicable, work samples or project examples, if any.

Gaining practical experience is especially important for young professionals, but an internship
Adding to the next in line may not be the solution either - what is your advice here? If that is the case, you have to search even more specifically and get support. To do this, you have to activate or open your own contacts specialized IT job exchanges like GULP  to search. One of the advantages is
in that we offer young professionals the opportunity to work in different areas and
To try out projects in a junior position. Because we are very good in specific sectors
are positioned and have long-term contacts, we can also offer jobs that are not advertised on the open market.

Zurzeit gibt es einen regelrechten Start-up-Hype: Was erzählen Sie jungen Leuten, die davon träumen, das „nächste große Ding“ zu gründen?

The development of a start-up needs to be carefully considered and, above all, planned down to the last detail. Before you
starts, founders should ask themselves three questions:

  • Do I have an idea that excites me so much that I am prepared to forego a secure income and free time?
  • I have a Teamthat compliments me, supports me and with whom I want to work every day?
  • Can I get the resources needed to succeed?

This is accompanied by a financial risk and responsibility for any employees. If that is too much for you, you should first work as a solo self-employed person to find out on a smaller scale what it is like independent be.

Is it advisable for graduates to start a career as a freelancer or freelancer or should you have worked for at least a few years?

A Network Building up is very important as a freelancer, but also very difficult, especially at the beginning of your professional life. Platforms like GULP, on which you can view your services
imagine can and on which open projects are advertised by companies
help there. However, beginners often lack the necessary experience and evidence for
successfully implemented projects.

For graduates who come freshly from the university or college of higher education, it is usually better to work in a permanent position for a certain period of time, and perhaps to carry out the first projects as a freelancer by the way - provided the employer agrees. This gives you the opportunity to gain professional and personal knowledge and to expand your skills at the start of your career. After that, a jump into the freelancer business is nothing more.
