As a member of a LinkedIn Group – GIA – I saw some comments by IT Professionals who were asked what their recruiters could do to help them. Their response can basically be summed up in one statement – ‘I want the technical recruiter to know more about IT’. This is as simple as it gets.

Part of what I’ve done with my book ‘Technology Made Simple for the Technical Recruiter’ is make this a reachable goal for technical recruiters – corporate, independent, contract, agency recruiters alike. So if you’ve ever felt like you don’t know enough about today’s technologies to be able to perform your job to the best you can, or feel you want a little boost in your technology-ese to be able to perform skills validation or technical screening, then Technology Made Simple for the Technical Recruiter is for you. It’s available at Amazon, Barnes and Noble, or the book website at www.technicalrecruitingbook.com in print and ebook versions.

 Chapters 1–3 discuss The Technical Job Requisition, Technical Resume and Technology Team in detail. Starting out as a recruiter, transitioning from another career – this is a great read to get you started. Chapters 4–5 displays Fundamentals of Networking, Operating System Fundamentals…See the rest at book website www.technicalrecruitingbook.com
