While the phrase "we're all tech companies now" is bordering on entry into the cliche hall of fame, what it means to recruiting strategies in every type of business is bordering on crisis.

See, while there are hundreds of highly competitive jobs at Microsoft or Google, there are infinitely more jobs posted at thousands of companies you have probably never even heard of before. From Silicon Valley startup to mid-western no-name Fortune 50, everyone is looking for "top talent" and "game changers." The over-achieving employer brand cliche's litter these career sites and spew from the mouths of recruiter's who are just hoping some "undiscovered superstar" is ready to be persuaded by the potential of being a small fish in a big pond versus the lights and glamour of a big brand name on their resume. 

In no field are recruiter's more challenged to convince people to become that small fish than in tech roles. They are selling bigger dreams to candidates who hear thousands of stories every day.

And storytelling to a candidate who already has an awesome job and is too busy for story time isn't so easy. So how are you supposed to tell the right story? How do you craft a compelling message when the last writing class you took ended at least 5 years ago? 

First step? Consult a professional. And we're bringing one in, thanks to HackerRank
