How to attract top recruiting talent

Lem Diaz from GV in How to attract top recruiting talent

A technical recruiter should be able to explain at a high level what a distributed system is, or the difference between a native mobile app and a web mobile app.

If that’s the level of tech that’s required (or worse, what’s aimed for) by Silicon Valley, I’m worried. I’m by no means a technical person, yet I could easily answer both of those questions to a recruiter – which a) means I could work as a tech recruiter and b) land a job a tech job in Silicon Valley. Nice to know there’s a backup plan I guess.


I write a newsletter every two-four weeks. I'll let you decide if it’s any good but people seem to stay on. In fact, thousands of smart people incl. designers from Amazon, IDEO, Figma and Shopify are subscribers.
