Technology Made Simple for Technical Recruiters (& AEs)

New Training Webinar Series

Starting in June 2023, TechServe Alliance will offer a four-part training webinar series – Technology Made Simple for Technical Recruiters (& AEs) – presented by Dr. Obi Ogbanufe.

The goal of the webinar series is to make Recruiters and Account Executives more conversant in the language of the key technologies and associated skill sets enabling them to be more successful in their roles.

Non-technical recruiters and account executives will come away with a better understanding of the technology fundamentals that will allow them to more confidently source, engage, interview and place technical talent as well as communicate more effectively with hiring managers about their technology talent needs.
