It’s time for some big news!  Our long-awaited tech recruitment book IT Recruitment Process That Works. Proven strategies, industry benchmarks and expert intel to supercharge your tech hiring is out and is available exclusively on Amazon.

Kate Kandefer Tom WinterWhy this book came to life

This book was written to solve a problem universally faced by tech recruiters worldwide. Although books and reports devoted to HR are manifold, it’s difficult to find resources written specifically with tech recruiters in mind. As a consequence, most of the data and recommendations currently available are not directly applicable to the tech industry and it takes a lot of time to single out data which might be of use.

All insights, techniques, and data presented in this book cater specifically to the needs of tech recruitment professionals representing businesses of all sizes, from SMBs to corporate organizations. They can be successfully used by seasoned tech recruiters, as well as recruiters who would like to specialize in hiring software developers but don’t know where to start.

How do we know what they need? Each year, we talk to thousands of tech recruiters from all around the world who share their gripes, concerns, and problems so we have a good understanding of their perspective. At the same time, we also get feedback from developers and IT workers, so we also know their side of the story.

This gives us a unique view of the hiring process which includes both parties involved in it. Pretty handy, right?
