Recruiting Telecoms and IT Convergence Masterclass
The Recruiting IT-Telecoms Convergence Masterclass
Overview and Objectives:
Holistica brings you another world first! This is a course designed specifically for those recruiting in the rapidly evolving telecoms market. Are you finding that your Telecoms Recruiters are now having to speak more fluently in the areas of IT? Are you now discovering that the traditionally telco roles and job specs are starting to fade away and are becoming more and more IT oriented? Then this is the course for your telco teams. In terms of content, this course will give all telecoms recruiters a very clear and detailed understanding of the impact that IT and Digital is having on the telecoms architecture. We go on a journey from a high level overview of planet-changing concepts such as IoT and BYOD, through to the detailed explanation of the type of hardware and applications that might be found in the OSS and BSS. For the telco recruiter to become credible in this arena they need to feel totally comfortable with the IT concepts that come in to play around the architecture and this course will hand hold them through it.
Using clear plain language (as much as is possible), the training will demystify what may appear to be esoteric technology areas, and get you ready to understand the growing interface where IT meets telecoms. This training will teach you everything you need to know in order to confidently discuss converged technologies with candidates and clients alike.
There are no pre-requisites for attending this course, however we prefer that you have had some exposure to telecoms services or products at a recruiting level.
