"The IT World Is So Complicated Yet I'm Supposed To Find IT Candidates!"

Hi! I'm Michal Juhas, an IT recruiter who used to struggle with the IT keywords I saw on candidate's resumes.

Like a lot of IT recruiters, I'm also overwhelmed with the programming languages, software frameworks, and tools the IT professionals use at work.
And that's me AFTER working it IT for over 18 years!
How are we supposed to find and interview candidates when there are so many IT keywords?!
One day I created a mind map with keywords related to DevOps... because I was about to interview a DevOps candidate.
It went well so I soon created a second mind map.
Then third, fourth, ... and once I started sharing them with colleagues, it took off the ground 🔥
Suddenly everyone wanted to start using the mind maps to quickly look up important IT keywords but they were working on other positions.
So, I created more and more mind maps... and now we have 42!
To help fellow recruiters further, I even recorded video tutorials explaining each mind map.
If you also feel overwhelmed with the IT terminology, programming languages, software frameworks, and tools that IT professionals use every day, I've got something special for you:
The "IT Recruiter Mind Maps" PDF eBook.
You can now see the essential IT vocabulary beautifully visualized in one place so that you can structure your thoughts and look up the right keywords before your next call with an IT candidate, hiring manager, or your colleague.
Keep these proven mind maps on your desk to quickly look up technologies, programming languages, libraries and frameworks relevant to IT roles and candidates you are looking for.

About The Author

My Name Is Michal Juhas And I've Been Recruiting IT Professionals For Over Nine Years

I have co-founded companies in the Czech Republic, Thailand, and Slovakia. The biggest one, where I served as a CTO and tech lead, has reached $70m in annual gross booking volume. 

Today, my team and I specialize in Tech Recruitment. Our clients include San Francisco-based startups, international corporations, as well as European scale-ups.

We believe IT recruiters need to continuously learn about IT in order to be successful in their jobs and that's why we've trained over 30,000 IT & HR professionals – some of them are from the largest staffing organizations like Manpower, Experis, and Accenture.

But if you think it's just about recruitment services, you're missing the point. What we are really about is helping impactful businesses establish high-performing software teams so they can make the world a better place.

That's why we're building the Global Talents Hub where IT professionals get inspired to work on meaningful projects and get connected with hiring managers who work on the most interesting global challenges.

Our goal is really simple; to help CTOs get the right IT professionals on board so they can focus on global challenges such as climate change, education, wealth inequality, or poverty.

And I can show you step-by-step how you can do IT recruitment, too!
"How to write compelling Job Ads"
"Programming languages and frameworks"
"Use GitHub to source SW developers"
"This is how to recruit Frontend developers."
"Follow these three recruitment strategies"
And there's nothing to worry about because of this rock-solid
