Csudinka Csudutov

Csudi is the founder and leader of Mimox, one of the most important and dependable players of the Hungarian IT Recruitment arena for 13 years now. „Just upload your CV, no need to register!” reads their website, because these guys know what candidates hate… and also what they love.

Gloves-off hands-on career advancement advice for example – which isn’t always what candidates wanted to hear, but instead a realistic assessment of the situation. Over the years Mimox helped hundreds of IT workers to stand tall, find their bearings, avoid maelstroms created by the influx of new technologies and the crosswinds of neglected opportunities, to steadily sail forward their career boats on the IT ocean. And also answered tons of questions like „should I stay or should I go?”

Besides their strong competency and expertise not just on the IT market but the technical side of IT as well, it is how they work with candidates is what makes them exceptional. That’s probably why they are today one of the most popular recruitment companies on the market. And being POPULAR in recruitment is no small feat.

Etienne Besson

Etienne is an HR professional from Switzerland. For the last 15 years he’s considered the “virtual” world as much his home as the so-called “real” world.

After attending more than half a dozen #Tru events he decided that it was time to organize #TruGeneva, although (or maybe because) some German bloggers still consider Switzerland to be a developing country in terms of social recruitment.
