IT Fundamentals For Individual Recruiters

Nine video courses bundled together to help IT recruiters acquire solid technical foundation.


Wouldn't be great if you understood the technical terms hiring managers and developers mention in their CVs or during an interview? Wouldn't it help you "close" more deals?

Of course, it would!

The recruiters we train in IT get an immediate confidence boost after they learn the differences between:

  • Testing vs. QA
  • DevOps vs. NoOps
  • Data warehouse vs. Big Data
  • Project manager vs. Product manager
  • Kanban vs. Scrum
  • Lean vs. Agile
  • SQL vs. PL/SQL
  • Product vs. Engineering teams
  • Backend vs. Fullstack
  • Product manager vs. Project manager
  • ... and 50+ more key terms explained in a human language

We go as far as giving out "scripts" on how to start a conversation.

This is your chance to understand the terminology software developers and CTOs use daily.

Wait no more, start learning today!

I really enjoy your short tips and like the idea of bringing in developers to the table.

Just signed up! There is always plenty to learn in this challenging and dynamic market!

Marta, recruiter

I was really surprised how professional the course from Geekruiter is - IT people finally speak a normal language that everyone can understand! It is very much visible how much work they have invested in order to help recruiters understand technical fundamentals; so essential for our work!

I got to learn a lot of new things, made things clear that I thought I knew, but Michal together with his team helped me to understand it in a wider concept.

I do recommend you to join Geekruiter - learning is fun with them and they are ready to explain you every single detail that you were afraid to ask before.

Michaela, recruiter
