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.
