For years, General Electric Co. relied on a tried-and-true playbook for hiring: Sit back and let the resumes roll in.
But today, as part of a corporate makeover that includes moving its headquarters to Boston, GE says it wants to hire the software programmers and other digital talent who are the backbone of the innovation economy.
Those household names are probably not quaking in their boots at the prospect of hiring battles with GE, said Sean McLoughlin, head of the tech recruiting practice at recruiting firm HireMinds LLC.
“I would say the number one request we hear from candidates is, ‘I want to work for a consumer-oriented company.’ That’s what GE’s up against,” McLoughlin said.
