Technology is reshaping not only the way we live and communicate with each other, but also the way we work. Therefore, the skills and resources that IT professionals need to succeed in their careers and those that companies need to succeed in their IT projects are constantly evolving.

In addition, the ways in which companies and teams operate are changing dramatically, even more so since the beginning of the pandemic. And this is just the beginning.

The classic relationships between employees and employers are being radically redrawn. The boundaries between permanent and freelance work are blurring. The talent gap in the tech sector continues to widen, and job seekers and companies have different needs.

As a result, today’s IT professionals are concerned about how best to manage and build a successful career in an ever-changing environment where skills must be constantly updated to remain relevant.

For companies and IT managers, it’s about figuring out how to adapt and keep up with this changing landscape while maintaining agility, competitiveness, and a cohesive approach to talent and operations.

Being flexible, keen to learn and adaptable became then the key to success. The technological  IT recruitments must also keep pace with innovation and new horizons.

Therefore, in 2021 Club-Freelance launched Mindquest: the answer to the ever-changing IT and technology world.

Drawing on the experience and expertise of Club- Freelance, Mindquest adapts to a borderless IT & Tech world.

With Mindquest, in fact, the company expands its offerings. No longer just a freelance recruitment service in the IT industry, its expertise now includes permanent recruitment and expands support for clients across borders.

But, how to reconcile the two positions and help the global IT industry reach its full potential?

Mindquest likes to think of it as a lifelong journey for both professionals and companies. It is a quest that requires all parties to be in constant motion. To get out of their comfort zone, to make a few mistakes, and to learn to keep moving forward.
