Free ASA Webinar Today—Understanding Technical Candidates

Don’t miss the ASA webinar “Think Like a Developer Tech Series, Part I: The Software Development Life Cycle.” It takes place today from 3 to 4 p.m. Eastern time.

Recruiting for technical candidates is a challenge for many recruiters who don’t speak their language—but learning about the foundations of software development will help you communicate better with talent so you can hold credible—and even fun—technical interviews. This is the first webinar in a series meant to help technical recruiters relate to candidates.

All ASA webinars are free for ASA members, and most qualify for continuing education hours toward ASA certification renewal. To learn more and to register, visit
