MSP On Deck Podcast #14: Andy Slavitt, Minnesota Venture Capital Firms And Are Developer Jobs The Best Jobs
Here we go… MSP On Deck  Podcast #14 I learned a lot during this episode. We started by talking about Andy Slavitt (@ASlavitt) who is new to me. For starters he has 189,000+ Twitter followers where his bio is: Ran Medicare, Medicaid & ACA for President Obama. @usatoday, Columnist. Launching a health care initiative for the next decade in 2018. It’s that last part which is why we were talking about him. Kathy wrote about it here (subscription) High-profile Obamacare...

State Of Startup Recruiting
The past months I have been talking with a number of Midwest startup CEO’s, CTO’s and non tech Co Founder’s about recruiting and what to expect in 2018. The main point I left with all of them is that they as individuals need to spend more of their work and personal time on it. My experience is that Bay Area CEO’s will spend up to a third of their time recruiting. And in the Midwest… CEO’s generally spend much less time than that. And yet, everyone knows that recruiting is...

Q&A With Minnesota Headhunter: An Intro To The Minnesota Startup And Tech Scene
As 2017 was winding down I was getting a number of inquiries about the Minnesota startup and tech scene from people outside Minnesota. I think the recruiting trip to Chicago, the Fly in Program during Twin Cities Startup Week and my own sourcing and recruiting is the cause of this. Most inquiries are coming from a few regions: San Francisco and Silicon Valley Chicago, Detroit… Midwest Seattle Austin and Dallas And I have not yet put together a list of resources or guide to send them. So…...

Minnesota Morning: Happy New Year And Winter 2018 Minnesota Tech And Startup Events
My favorite New Year’s Day quote: “We will open the book. Its pages are blank. We are going to put words on them ourselves. The book is called Opportunity and its first chapter is New Year's Day.” - Edith Lovejoy Pierce I don’t get nostalgic about the end of the year and I don’t do resolutions. I do like the idea of new beginnings and the optimism a new year brings. It feels fresh. 2017 for me was a full year personally and professionally with a lot of good change and some big steps...

Survey: Minneapolis #6 City For Tech Hiring In 2018
  A few weeks ago on the MSP on Deck Podcast 12 - The most popular tech news stories of 2017 + what big things are in the pipe for 2018? we made predictions for 2018 and one of mine is that Minneapolis and St Paul will see more IT job growth and a greater number of layoffs than 2017. Yes… I am predicting both. Let me start with the “bad news” first. As 2017 went on there were a number of unannounced layoffs at many large companies… usually in the 10’s, 20’s and 50’s range of...

Speaking of Teresa… she spoke about this topic at my Midwest Recruiting Bootcamp this summer.
