Technical Competence

Experience directly correlates with technical proficiency. Candidates with hands-on experience as software developers, systems engineers, and data engineers can integrate into your projects and hit the ground running. Their familiarity with industry-standard tools and technologies allows them to tackle complex problems and accelerate project timelines.

Fitting In

By having experience, you also gain exposure to different work environments. With a better understanding of different workplace cultures, experienced candidates can adapt more easily and foster a positive atmosphere. This adaptability is crucial for roles such as network engineers and full stack developers, who often need to collaborate across various departments and teams.

Reducing Risk with Direct Hiring

Hiring someone with a track record minimizes the risks associated with new hires. Facing challenges that come with being a machine learning engineer or a big data engineer, experienced candidates for these roles have a good understanding of the complicated situations that can arise. It never hurts to look for tried-and-tested problem-solving skills in these candidates.

Driving Innovation

Having worked at other companies, applicants may be able to bring in new perspectives of how to approach problems. With diverse work history comes a broad range of insights and innovative ideas. This is especially beneficial for roles where creativity and out-of-the-box thinking, such as software development and digital marketing, drive competitive advantage.

Leadership and Mentorship

Being able to lead is a strong skill to have. Years of experience typically leads to this. Already having adopted the other skills of the job, mentorship and guidance comes next. If you already have a staff of juniors, this makes the addition of experienced leaders necessary because they can help promote best practices and inspire confidence.
