Job search in the IT industry: challenges and opportunities

Episode 11: looking for opportunities in the software development sector

If you are part of the IT industry in Uruguay, you already know that there is zero unemployment in this sector, which means that it is increasingly difficult for companies to find and retain talent. On the other hand, developers, designers and other technology-related professionals also have to overcome challenges when looking for and prioritizing opportunities. These are the topics of this episode, featuring Guillermo Perez, CEO of Octobot, and Christian Bouvier, co-founder and CTO of Workifit.

They talk about building a business in this industry, the context of looking for job opportunities and talented professionals in the sector, and tips for finding the right company and people to work with.
