FAQ:

What does Geekology mean?

A geek is a person with an eccentric devotion to scientific or technical pursuits. Geekology is the study of the language, psychology, and functioning of geeks.

Do I have to be technical to master technical recruiting?

No. Geekology makes understanding geeks simple, so you can master technical recruiting without being technical... and you can become a recruiting geek.

What is Geekology?

It's a new technical recruiting training program that gives you everything you need to know about technology, engineering teams, and technical talent - all in plain English.

How important is technical knowledge for technical recruiting?

Very. It's a core skill for technical recruiting and it’s totally possible for non-programmers to have this knowledge.

What can your training do for me?

You can achieve these results:
  • Have intelligent conversations with technical people
  • Make smart candidate selections and confident decisions
  • Identify high potential candidates that might have been missed
  • Gain recognition for your talent acquisition contribution

Why don’t most recruiters have enough technical knowledge?

Learning technology can seem overwhelming and it's difficult to know what to learn. Knowing what is and isn't needed for technical recruiting requires insights and experience from someone who understands both software development and recruiting. This is how Geekology helps recruiters with effective learning.

I'm doing alright with my recruiting. Why should I take this class now?

  • Go beyond keyword matching
  • Increase both quality and quantity of candidates
  • Don't let good candidates slip by without even knowing
  • Change from passive and reactive to proactive recruiting
  • Can't rely on developer friends to be good at teaching and explaining
  • Keep up with fast-changing technologies
  • Gain technical people's recognition and respect
