About Me

IT Recruiter Training

My name is Obi Ogbanufe and I am the author of “Technology Made Simple for the Technical Recruiter.” My background is in technology, with a bachelor’s degree in computer science and engineering, and currently seeking a Master’s in Software Engineering.

I started my career in NCR Corporation as a professional services consultant and then moved on to other job roles including Windows Administrator, Database Administrator, Programmer Analyst, Quality Assurance Engineer, and Database Developer with companies like Voyager Expanded Learning and Match.com.

I hold a few certifications like Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE), Microsoft Certified Database Administrator (MCDBA), Microsoft Certified Business Management Solution Specialist on Dynamics CRM, and Oracle Certified Associate (OCA). I spent two years working as a technical recruiter for a company I started in 2006, recruiting candidates in different technical areas.

My mission with this book is to increase the rate at which technical recruiters are able to realistically match candidates to job descriptions, and the confidence to communicate unrealistic technical requirements goals to hiring managers.
