IT community Spiceworks has unveiled two recruitment resources for candidates wanting to showcase expertise in specific technologies, and recruiters looking for specific skills.
IT profiles with projects and job board aim to showcase IT professionals’ expertise, to make it clear for recruiters looking for candidates that are skilled in particular areas or products.
IT professionals can use the IT profiles with projects service to add photos, videos, project budget and location information, as well as tagging from a catalogue of 40,000 IT products they have experience in using.
During the beta programme, users created almost 4,000 IT projects and tagged more than 750 products and services.

Nigel Hickey, infrastructure administrator at National Specialty Alloys, said: “Traditional online résumés are too generic and don’t accurately capture the challenges and experiences of working in the IT industry.
“Like professionals in other industries, our jobs and the tools we use are unique. The way we share our expertise should also be unique to us, the work we do, and go beyond simple bullet points.”
Through the network’s job board, service recruiters on the hunt for IT professionals can post their roles for an introductory price. Positions posted on the job board range from help desk support technician through to CIO.
Tabrez Syed, vice-president of products at Spiceworks, said: “IT professionals are tasked with addressing the challenges of a constantly evolving industry, yet until now they didn’t have a way to capture their expertise and IT experiences in a way that’s unique to the IT industry and their career.”
“As the professional network for the $3 trillion IT industry, we have a unique opportunity to provide millions of IT professionals and the recruiters looking to reach them with the tools and resources they need to do their jobs.”
