This is the 8th year of doing this kind of presentation... a few slides and a lot of Q&A and discussion.
Frequent conversations I have had lately include (and bring what is on your mind):
And every year someone asks, "Why do recruiters suck so bad?". I'll pull the curtain back on what it is like to be one.
Paul DeBettignies is better known online as Minnesota Headhunter. Recognized as a Talent Leader, depending on the project he is working on, titles like Senior Tech Recruiter, Senior People Operations Consultant, Principal Talent Advisor are frequently used.
For 25+ years Paul has built software, tech, product and digital teams with startups and tech companies throughout the country with a focus on Minnesota and the Midwest and creates recruiting strategies for Fortune 500 clients. Paul is the author of “Minnesota Headhunter” (the longest running regional recruiter blog) and the recently debuted bi-weekly newsletter “Recruiter Life”.
He is a regional and national speaker, trainer, subject matter expert and trusted media source on recruiter, HR, career, job search, networking and social media topics.
Born and raised in Minneapolis, Paul despises bios and does not take himself as serious as this all sounds. He loves sunsets, fishing, gardening and still believes that one day the Gophers will go to the Rose Bowl.
