Team Upskill

We help recruiters become more confident and successful in filling software development and IT positions.

Is Your Team Trying Hard To Recruit Software Developers?

  • Do your team members feel overwhelmed by all the IT terminology?
  • Would you like them to understand technologies better so they can talk to developers with confidence and interact during meetups or job fairs?
  • Would you like to shorten their on-boarding time?
  • Would you like to structure your recruitment team's on-boarding?

Evidence shows that recruiters who don't have a solid IT background struggle to source and recruit software developers.

Just imagine

How Many Developers Could Your Team Hire If They Had A Strong IT Background?

Technical leaders, CTOs, and hiring managers have most knowledge related to hiring software developers. They understand technologies, know about the IT roles, and know what to ask during an interview.

Many of them know how to attract developers, how to source them on GitHub or in Slack communities.

But they don't like to recruit!

Imagine what would your business be like if your recruiters knew a lot about technologies AND if they also enjoyed the recruitment activities!

They could cold call developers, interview them with confidence, assess, and even give Go/No-Go recommendations to the hiring managers. #nextLevel

How many more developers could they recruit if they knew how to attract them?

How much more in commissions could your business earn if they were able to source and attract the right IT people and match with the right positions?

...and that's why we are here! We "extract knowledge" from the heads of CTOs and hiring managers and show how can recruiters apply it in their daily job.

As an alternative, your team-mates can...

  • ...spend hours watching random YouTube videos and not learn anything.
  • to random developers trying to learn from them only to realize their are stuck for yet another month.
  • nothing and keep struggling for another year or two while wasting the huge recruitment opportunities laying right in front of them!
  • Would you like to structure your team's on-boarding?

Or... You can enroll them in our training program where they learn what they need, quickly.

We train and upskill recruiters around the world to become great at IT recruitment. They learn a lot about software developers and the technologies, languages, and frameworks they use.

We Focus On Results

We usually start with laying down a strong technical foundation:

  • Understand technologies, languages and frameworks related to software development, DevOps, networking, cybersecurity, Data and BI.

Then, they learn...

  • How to analyze a job description, categorize and identify what is missing.
  • What to ask an IT hiring manager to fill in the gaps.
  • How to make a small-talk with software developers to demonstrate expertise.

And we get them to a point where they know...

  • How to write attractive job ads and teasers to attract passive candidates on social media.
  • How to source and approach software developers.
  • How to screen and assess IT candidates.
  • How to pre-interview candidates so they are more helpful to the hiring manager.
  • and eventually recommend if and why is the candidate a good fit.
