Minnesota Morning: Recruiter Jobs, Foundry And Arthur Ventures Partner, Minnesota May Jobs Report And Flipgrid Acquired By Microsoft
I haven’t posted one of these in a while (and started writing this last Friday)… mostly because it seems so many things are moving so fast (not necessarily a good thing) I’m not keeping up. I have also noticed the number of updates on @MNHeadhunter and LinkedIn have declined. I’ll be working on that. Maybe it’s also in part because we went from winter to summer in a few weeks and I have been doing my best to enjoy it. And the dock was finally installed last week so no longer shore fishing....

Minnesota Headhunter On The Schmidt List Podcast
A couple of weeks ago I sat down with Kurt Schmidt to record a session of his The Schmidt List podcast. Kurt is the President of Foundry (@FoundryMakes | Instagram) and he can be found by clicking LinkedIn, @KRTS & The Schmidt List with (as I post this) 36 podcast episodes. We’ve bumped into each other a number of times over the years and had a bunch of quick chats. But this is the first time we had some quality time. Here is his current bio:Kurt Schmidt began his career as a graphic designer...

Recession 2020: Will You Be Ready?
The dreaded “R” word reared its ugly head last week when the NABE (National Association for Business Economics) released its Q2 2018 quarterly report that their 45 economists saw the economy going the following way: +2.8 % GDP in 2018 +2.7% GDP in 2019 That OK news. More of the same of the past 10 years. Not great, not horrible. Moving along at decent pace. Here is the bad news: Around 50% see a recession by the end of 2019 and early 2020 60%+ see a recession by the end of 2020 These numbers...

MSP On Deck Podcast #19: Reeher And Redbrick Acquired, Gravie Funding, Minnesota Recruiters And Minnesota Tech Layoffs
We start this episode talking about Redbrick Health… a frequent topic on our show and a group we had been thinking would have an “event” of some sort later this or next year. Out of the blue they are acquired by private equity and merged with another group. Casey walks us through why this is a bummer. It’s not a great exit and he talks about who did well or in this case not well. The one bit of good news is it appears to some extent the Minneapolis office will continue on. I of course...

The Voice of IT
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...

The Voice of IT
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. Large quantities of fascinating data can be collected during that process but seldom are. My experience is that even when that data is collected, it is rarely analyzed. 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...
