Hi, I am Michael Ruske...

...and I would like to turn YOU into a top 1% candidate who gets the job offer!

Why should I be the one teaching you about mastering the recruiting process? After all, I am not even a recruiter myself. Great question, so let’s see:

I have been working in the highly competitive management consulting industry with Boston Consulting Group, PwC, and Strategy& – In Germany, Mexico, Colombia, South Africa, South Korea, and Spain, among others.

My experience has led me to talk to 150+ recruiters of the most competitive companies around the world and representatives of some of the most important business schools. This with the objective of deconstructing the recruiting process and identifying the key success factors in every phase.

Since I started Cracking Recruiting, I have successfully supported 300+ ambitious candidates in their pursuit of job opportunities with leading companies, particularly in the consulting, technology, and sales industries.

To put it all together, I personally and professionally love to support others in achieving their goals. And that’s why I would be honored to share my experience with you to help you get this next job offer that propels your career and gets you one step closer to fulfilling your dreams.


What Other Students Have to Say

Very valuable investment for my professional life. This course explains exactly what companies are expecting from your application and I really liked the examples Michael shared from his talks with recruiters. Coming from consulting in Latin America, I am currently interviewing in Spain and have already obtained two consulting offers. So, I don't hesitate to recommend it.

This program got me fascinated. I needed a new CV for my move to the UK and felt it was difficult to summarize my experience on one page, but this program taught me step by step what to focus on and what information to leave out to maximize the recruiter's focus on the essential.
