Attracting and Landing Tech Talent for Your Project

Instructor: Lisa Williams

Congratulations! You just got funded to do an innovative online or mobile project. That’s fantastic!

Except for one thing. You don’t know who’s going to build this digital product for you, and you’re not quite sure how to get started. 

This course will give you a basic roadmap to finding, landing, and communicating with top tech talent on your budget, timeline, and goals. 

Overview

Who should take this course:

If you need to hire tech talent to build a website, mobile app, or other digital project, this course will help you find, evaluate, and work with programmers, designers, and other technical professionals. 

What you will learn:

  1. Where can I find tech talent to hire? Should I hire an individual, or a firm? Is it important to hire someone local?
  2. How can I evaluate individuals and firms who want to help me build a website or mobile app? 
  3. How can I tell if I'm paying too much (or too little)?
