Super Talented Minnesota Grads Are Working At Top Tech Companies Nationally
I’m sitting in the passenger seat as we drive from Fargo back to Minneapolis and as I stare out the window I have been thinking about recruiting to our region (really, this is on my mind)… and how do we get more people to move to the area. I think about this a lot.Then about a conversation I had this week about how everyone is recruiting and few groups are really working on retention.And that gets me to this… as a region we need to do a better job at getting people to stay. Sure, some folks...

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....

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.

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...

3 Lessons Learned From Minnesota Tech Layoffs: Capital One And ONE20
Back in December on the MSP On Deck podcast we made 2018 predictions and mine was that we would see continued greater tech hiring and we would see more layoffs… that we would see more churn in 2018 than 2017.
