My team and I love reading. We read and share with each other books about recruitment, copywriting, business and self-development. We would like to share with you the books that we have already read and which we want to read this year. All of them are about IT recruitment and sourcing :)

Книга Full stack Recruiter

Full Stack Recruiter

It is a new book by Jan Tegze where his experience, life hacks and pieces of advice from the previous two books are combined. And, of course, here you can find a lot of updated information. Its name“Full Stack Recruiter” fully justifies itself. From a comprehensive sourcing guide to personal brand development, this book has it all! This amazing book is complemented by "Full Stack Recruiter" website with chapters that were not included in the book. Moreover, Jan has a plan to update the content and add new information to the website.

We recently interviewed Jan and asked him about his new book [you can read it here:)].

And some good news: we have already brought “Full Stack Recruiter: The Ultimate Edition” to Ukraine! You can order a new book now, just contact Masha Naumenko: and 0634226602 (Telegram) or pay for it through Wayforpay.
