12 Ways To Network During Twin Cities Startup Week
Since my post a few weeks ago, Twin Cities Startup Week 2018 Calendar And 10 Tips To Doing Startup Week, I’ve had a number of follow up questions about how to network and make new friends during Twin Cities Startup Week. I have two opposing hats I wear when talking about this… I am an introvert (stand on the sideline, observe and find quiet space) and a recruiter (be in the middle of the action and talk to people). Events, networking and making conversation is not just an issue for us Introverts....

Minneapolis A Top 10 Rising City For Startups
Oh, how I like lists… particularly when something I am fond of is on one. This one is from Forbes and Revolution. They list the Top 10 Rising Cities for Startups and Minneapolis – St. Paul is on it. Being a “homer” I think we are better than #9 but I’ll get over it. I have been saying for a long time that I do not think this region needs to be compared to Seattle, Bay Area, Boston or New York City. We do want and need to be at the top of the next list… the Tier II cities. And we need...

Conversation With A Software Manager… All My Good People Leave
I had what started as an intense conversation with a Software Manager this morning and I am writing this quick so I don’t forget some of the things we spoke about.Short version is that “Software Manager” is disappointed that the average length of time on their team right now is 3 years 7 months. And I was thinking… that sounds OK to me.So we dug into a few of the scenarios they have experienced and I gave my thoughts about them.

Domestic Migration and you
So for some time we’ve seen companies in several growth area’s in the country be unable to fill their technology jobs in a timely fashion.  This can be chalked up to many factors (including companies attempting to hold wages down, their unwillingness to utilize recruiters and being highly inflexible as to the skills and experience of candidates), and quite frankly its put them in a difficult position. However, that may begin to change.  With the report that the housing...

No Magic Bus Full of Candidates
Most of the time I talk with companies today all I hear them saying is “I want it, I want it, I want it” and I believe The Who had it right when they said “Can’t have it” because this is what recruiters need to be prepared to tell their unrealistic hiring officials and clients in today’s market. All too many times we recruiters are talking to IT Managers and Human Resource professionals about the jobs they just can’t seem to fill only to hear them...

IT Training or lack thereof
Well I heard it on the news today that US corporations are again asking the federal government to allow more visa’s for foreign workers at high level technical and various other professional positions (including IT roles).  Sure I agree that there may in fact be “shortages” of people who have a specific IT skill sets, but what I don’t agree with is why we don’t have people with these skills or how companies currently hire.  Here’s a good article on...

The Best Boss I Never Had
If you're like me, you've had quite a few bosses over the years. Some were good, some were bad, some were great, and some you'd rather forget. So what makes a great boss? Now I'm completely aware that the challenges I've faced with my bosses over the years say at least as much about me as it does about them. That being said, let's take a look at the hypothetical best boss I never had. The best boss I never had is extremely loyal to the team. The best boss I never had takes complete responsibility...

Top 10 Things that are Seldom Measured and Analyzed that Should Be
Corporate recruitment departments are usually extremely busy places. The focus is mostly on filling currently open requisitions. Satisfying the internal customers' immediate needs is paramount.

Following are some ideas about what to collect and analyze. Source of hire data is really important. It's relatively easy to collect...

The Dreaded Employee Referral
Popular opinion is that employee referrals are the #1 source of hire in a corporate environment. I believe that to be true. But are employee referrals the #1 source of quality hires? I doubt it! Following are some thoughts from my own experience. Your mileage may vary. Companies often pay a referral bonus to encourage employees to refer their friends and former colleagues to open positions. Bonuses range from a few hundred dollars to thousands of dollars. I wonder sometimes if referral bonus...
