"For years, technical recruiters have struggled to keep up with the ever changing technologies of the IT world. Up until now, relatively little had been developed to assist the recruiting community in keeping up with the rapidly changing landscape of technology. Now, all that has changed thanks to Technology Made Simple for the Technical Recruiter. Recruiting managers no longer need to struggle with where to go to find a comprehensive guide to train and equip their teams with the skills needed to excel at their jobs. This book should not only be required reading, but it should also be on the desk of every IT Technical Recruiter as an ongoing reference guide" — Matthew Harrington, Dallas, TX – IT Consulting and Staffing Leadership.

I have recommended this book to my entire recruiting team! Top 3 reasons why Obi's book is a great resource for the IT Recruiting industry:
1. Are technical terms and their relationship with each other confusing? Do they seem to change all the time? Obi breaks down the technologies in an easy-to-understand way and provides a conduit to understanding "tech" talk.
2. How do you read a resume? How do you know if the background might fit the position your searching on? Read Obi's book and you find the answers.
3. Does your candidate really have the experience they say they do? How do you "cut the wheat from the chaff"? This book will help you ask the right questions and find your candidates' strengths.
