In recruitment, you can automate much of your work. You have quite a few solutions to choose from, and decision what to use will depend on what positions you are recruiting for, what budget you have and how processes in your organisation are set up.

First a note: I have selected these 7 books from dozens of items from my library on Kindle relating to the recruitment and recruiting industry. I tried to choose titles that best show what the role of a recruiter is - working within the company's structures or on the side of a third-party recruitment provider, and which help to fulfill this role best.

In recent months (already in 2021), I have twice come across the opinion that a recruiter working in the IT industry does not have to be "tech-savvy". Once it came from an experienced software development manager, the second time I heard it from a well-known American Youtuber.
