TechRecruiterGuides.com began as a resource to help technical recruiters become better matchmakers between employers and developers.
The rationale behind this is a core belief that recruiting done right serves a vital role not just in helping employers fill vacancies, but in helping developers to further their careers.
The guides and blog you’ll find here focus on what we like to call relationship-based recruiting — no spamming or cold-emailing or spray-and-pray. The goal is to help you better understand how developers think so you can better provide value for both sides of the relationship.
At the moment, TRG is a team of one.
Chris Vannoy is a developer of more than decade’s experience (in Ruby and PHP, primarily) as well as a hiring manager at one of the largest media companies in the world as well as a small advertising firm that services some of the largest companies in the world.
In that decade-plus, Chris has seen the technical recruiting business from all sides:
He’s been a candidate himself, going through the recruiting process as a developer with hundreds of different recruiters — some good, some bad.
He’s been a recruiting client — using recruiting services to fill both temporary and permanent positions.
He’s been a recruiter and hiring manager himself — handling everything from talent selection to technical interviews and salary negotiation.
At TRG, he takes the insight he gained in all three of these roles to provide you with the tools you need to recruit more effectively.
