Minnesota Morning | Atique, Hack The Gap And 10 Hard To Find Tech Skills
Earlier this week I took a drive to St Paul to check out the Christmas lights at Rice Park. A few days prior we had snow on the ground but after some rain it was all gone. I’ll make another trip over there when it snows again. A couple of photos:   Atique Yesterday I bumped into the team working on Atique at CoCo - Downtown Minneapolis. They sell vintage and antique jewelry and what they were showing off was their virtual reality app. Simply put… it was dang cool. A couple of photos: ...

Minnesota Morning | Countdown To 2017 And F*** Yes Or No
After spending 1/3 of the 2016 summer in the Alexandria, MN area until the holiday weekend I had not been up there in 2 months. Obviously gone are the warm summer days and the fall colors but the area lakes are still ice free. So first thing I did before seeing family was find a lake and sit on some rocks:   The next day before Thanksgiving dinner I took a country road drive and while doing some thinking pulled over a few times to take a couple of photos:   Like most people 2017 was...

Minnesota Morning | Thomson Reuters Layoffs, UnitedHealth Group Hiring And CoCo Expands
  It’s been a week since Election Day… leading up to it I was ready for it to be over and on to whatever was going to be next. I’ve been having a “be careful watch you wish for” moment. I was guessing it would be a new version of what we have endured the past months and years. So far that seems to be the case. On Facebook I noticed I had posted this 4 years ago in the early hours after the 2012 election:   While completely jaded about our entire political system and hoping...

Conversation With A Java Developer… My Recruiter Contacted Me On Match, What Do I Do
  Last week I posted on Facebook and LinkedIn the following beginning of a conversation and received many funny comments: Awkward... Developer: So last week I submitted my resume to XYZ, Inc Me: Uh huh Dev: I have an interview next week Me: Cool Dev: Last night I get a message on Match, it's the Recruiter. Me: Oh shit (Recruiter has no idea this is the same guy) Just when I think I have seen and heard it all in recruiting… at least this is a fun story. After getting past my “oh...

Minnesota Morning | MN IT Layoffs And Top 10 LinkedIn Skills
  We’ve had an amazing fall in Minneapolis (some photos below from this weekend) and the forecast for this week is in the 60’s. Why I am talking about the weather to start this… anyone who was in Minneapolis 25 years ago today will remember the Halloween Blizzard of 1991. An epic storm that dropped 28.4 inches of snow over three days. I was in college then and my fraternity had a Halloween party that I was not able to get to… I was not living near campus and by the time I started...

Conversation With An Android Developer… Let Your Recruiter Friends Know You Are Looking
1st time ever hearing this => "Why did it take so long for you to recruit me?" #RecruiterLife — Paul DeBettignies (@MNHeadhunter) October 12, 2016 I was at a Minneapolis tech user group a couple of weeks ago and was talking to a couple of developers about a particularly cool set of roles that were going to be opening up at a local tech company. A 3rd developer, someone I have had a couple of conversations with at tech events this year, was listening in and asking some questions about these...

Recruiting Tips: Why Recruiters Should Stop Posting Recruiting Content
I have an observation to make and first a disclaimer… I am not suggesting you completely stop posting content from SourceCon, ERE, Recruiting Daily and the blogs you read. Are we clear on that? Good. Here is what I am suggesting: let’s say you recruit Tech, Product, Digital and Data professionals in Minneapolis and St Paul and you only post content on the latest LinkedIn Boolean search thing, how to create a better employee referral program or how to create personas… do you think your candidates...

Recruiting Tips: Show Your “Under Construction” Photos
  I just had a long conversation with a Minneapolis startup CTO and we were talking about their upcoming expansion including an office move and build out. He was wondering if they should show off the move, new space and if so how often and in what form. Of course my answer to him was yes they should. It shows momentum, growth and keeps friends and followers of the company engaged during what is usually a chaotic time. He noted that a number of groups in Minneapolis have recently or are currently...

Minnesota Morning… Exhale
I am on day five of doing nothing and it feels really weird. One part freeing and one part W T H… I should be working my (bleep) off. One good thing is I don’t wake up exhausted any more. And I seem to be doing some big picture thinking which I guess makes sense when you are not running off to the next meeting, conference call or candidate interview. Since I wrote Taking A Step Back, Skate Where The Puck Will Be And What’s Next For Me almost a month ago to the day a bunch of things have...
