Meet The Author
I'm Aaron Decker, a full stack developer with about 10 years of experience writing code. I have worked as a Tech Lead, hired teams, and as a Senior Software Engineer at multiple fortune 500 companies building large products. I also did a brief stint teaching programming courses as an Adjunct Instructor at a local community college.
Why You Should Care
Domain knowledge is a key to success in recruiting according to one prominent author of recruiting books, and even more so in technical recruiting where you are recruiting software engineers and speaking with highly technical hiring managers.
Do you want to spend months learning all of this stuff on your own, one google search at a time (not knowing which crucial things you are missing), or do you want to get all of the info in one place in a dedicated video training series?
I have performed surveys that indicate that most of the top reasons why developers don’t respond to recruiters are things you can fix by understanding technology, developers, and tech culture more. My argument is this: if you want to improve your response rate and get higher quality candidates on the hook you will benefit from this course.
I have interviewed extremely senior recruiters who have also shared the same insights about "not doing things in a cookie-cutter fashion" and how generally understanding the industry better leads to better results. 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.
Some Reasons Why Developers Don’t Respond:
- 🤔 Mismatched technology skillset in proposal
- 🔧 Mismatched skill level / career level
- 🗣️ Off-putting language in your email
- 🗺️ Geographic location mismatch
- 💤 Company / role seems uninteresting
- 🗑️ Clearly sent from a bulk campaign.
Experienced developers might get 20 or 30 emails a day, what are you doing to cut through and make an impact? The easiest way to do this is to learn the speak the same language software engineers are using and make real connections. But to do this, you have to learn domain knowledge.

What are people saying about the course?
"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
