IT Recruiters Manual - I. Introduction

In recent years, the boom in recruitment of IT experts has reached its historic peak. Software developers and other IT specialists are today needed in banks, start-ups, and logistics, pharmaceutical and industrial companies. It is literally open season on IT specialists both from recruitment agencies trying to profit from the prevailing situation, and from internal HR departments who urgently require IT specialists in their companies. Alongside the demand for IT experts, there is logically also a rise in the number of HR managers seeking and recruiting IT experts.

This has resulted in numerous paradoxical, erroneous and vague dialogues between IT recruiters and IT specialists.

Our desire is that the information this contains will be both readable and understandable. We hope you enjoy the read.
