Improving Response Rates

The number one reason recruiters don't get a response is because of mis-targeting.

The latest developer survey I ran in January, shows clearly that recruiters could easily improve their response rates.

The easiest thing you can do as a recruiter is to simply learn the technology to better qualify candidates.

My course covers these essential topics:

  •  The Software Development Lifecycle
  •  Basic Client/Server Architecture
  •  Tech Stacks
  •  Frontend Vs Backend
  •  Databases

Normally it takes months (if not years) to pick up on this essential domain knowledge. Lucky for you I have packaged it all into one place in a course designed specifically for technical recruiters.

Survey Question:

why dont developers respond most often

Domain Knowledge is Crucial!

Domain knowledge is a key to success in recruiting according to one prominent author of recruiting books, and even more so in the complex and swiftly changing field of software.

Learning the ins and outs of how software is made is a difficult process. It's hard to get a complete understanding, especially if you don't know which crucial pieces of the puzzle you are missing.

You can learn tech topics somewhere else, but I am building this course specifically for recruiters and it will be curated all in one place for you.

Isn't it worth investing the time to learn about the industry if it could drastically improve your response rates?

Making better connections with candidates.

In the first survey I ran with developers about recruiters, one person responded:

Recruiters probably should have industry experience. There’s too much of a disconnect.

Even worse, in the most recent survey I ran, 45% of developers said they had a "Generally Negative"opinion about working with recruiters.

The best way to connect with developers is to understand what they do. Making a real connection with candidates takes their shields down and gives you a chance to do you job.

What are people saying about the course?

"Aarons course did wonders for me as a new tech recruiter! I started it knowing almost nothing about the tech world and after completing the course, I was able to better articulate how development and design work in order to understand what my candidates do everyday. It's great to be able to speak my candidates language and relate to them on a deeper level. "

- Grace Fjellanger

"As someone who has never written a line of code before I think this course is something special. Being able to gain deeper technical knowledge as well as insight into how developers truly view the work recruiters do is highly beneficial. This course has the ability to change a lot in the world of technical recruiting."

- Stephanie Paulson

"This course is a great way for a new technical recruiter to gain perspective from an engineer's point of view as well as dive deeper into some more technical concepts to more easily relate with engineers. There’s a lot of value to be had and it can definitely help you get up to speed faster as a new recruiter."

- Quinn Marzolf

"A comprehensive look at what software engineers do, the technologies involved, and what their job search is like. Your course is the info I expected to get out of the training for my current job, but unfortunately my training wasn't nearly as thorough."

- Chris Kurker

"Aaron made a professional and thoughtful presentation to our group of recruiters. He has a passion for the process that occurs between an technical candidate and a Talent Acquisition Professional and can offer helpful insight into improving that relationship."

- Rick DesLauriers, Owner of Recruiters of Minnesota
