The Best New Tech Talent May Not Be Where You Think
Historically, many employers have limited their searches for entry-level technical talent to universities with top-ranked computer science programs. With companies hiring in droves and demand for software developers far outweighing supply, it’s an ideal time to rethink that approach. To remain competitive, employers must seek tech talent in new places.
To help them find it, we analyzed more than 1 million certification attempts conducted by university students on HackerRank’s platform, and then found which universities around the world have the largest populations of students with these skills — many of which are in-demand skills that companies are hiring for.
This report consists of:
1,000,000 certification attempts in 14 skills from students at over 1,000 universities spanning 102 countries.
