Effective PreSales Recruiting and Hiring

Many technology companies are aggressively hiring for PreSales roles - aside from a lull during the pandemic - the hiring trajectory continues to accelerate with demand (open roles) often outpacing supply (qualified candidates). As hiring managers, the burden of identifying 'ideal candidate profiles' and sourcing candidates often falls on us, and we know that SE experience is far from one-size fits-all, making it especially hard to find and attract talent.

Join our leader roundtable discussion to learn how you can improve the effectiveness of your recruiting and hiring practices.

This roundtable discussion will cover:

  • Hiring Best Practices and Lessons Learned

  • Sourcing for Competencies vs Experience

  • Attracting and Competing for Talent

Each roundtable event is hosted by one of our PSLC members. Thank you to Greg Holmes, Regional Vice President of PreSales at Apptio, and Member of the PreSales Leadership Council, for hosting this event!
