Managing Your IT Career v13 – (Why do recruiters suck so bad?)

by Paul DeBettignies | at Minnebar 16 | 10:20 – 11:05 in Theater | View Schedule

A decade plus doing this presentation and this may be the most important one I have done. We are going to cover a lot of ground. I’ll start with the most frequent conversations I have had the past couple of months including:

• If, how will West Coast tech company hiring freezes and layoffs impact Midwest tech pros?

• And the follow up topic, if an economic slowdown or recession is realized… how does that change things?

• Have we hit salary peaks?

• How are remote salaries impacting MN roles, salaries?

• What are the hiring trends in Minnesota, Midwest and remote roles?

That’s where we’ll start.

Please bring your questions, thoughts and opinions.

Send them ahead if you like to be sure we get to them =>

This will be a laid back, casual, engaging conversation.

The current over/under on the number of times I say “sucks” is 6.5 😊
