I've read 3 technical recruiting books so far. This one was my favorite. The author has an easy style to comprehend and the book is in fact a pleasure to read. As a technical recruiter myself that focuses on recruiting software engineers in the San Francisco Bay Area, I've found this book gave me enough detail to give me a solid foundation with the technology to have the ability to converse intelligently with the different engineers I speak with on a daily basis.
For what the book contains, and the style it's written in, I have given it 5 stars. I would however, like to see additional sections that would explore some of the more recent booms in the business. I would like to see a whole section on "Cloud Computing" as well as sections on "Big Data", "Search", "Mobile", and "Gaming". Some of these are touched upon, but an expansion in these areas would make this book not only just better than it's competitors, which it already is, but make it light years ahead.
The book is fun to read, content explanation is easy to understand and remember due to the flow of information and related stories. Very thoughtfully written (always keeping the recruiter and their role in mind) . With pictorial presentations to describe complex IT concepts and anecdotes and stories to better understand the logic, this book is a must read for anyone who desires to improve their understanding of IT in general. A big thank you to the author for this book. "You’ve made learning fun"!
I recently started my own IT Staffing company and stumbled across this book. Lucky Me! I've found this to be the most resourceful "guide" in my overall understanding of IT, its lingo, and recruitment mindset . I feel confident already! Thanks for breaking it down!!!
