Managing Your IT Career v10 (Why do recruiters suck so bad?)

by Paul DeBettignies | at MinneBar 13 | 10:20 – 11:10 in Theater | View Schedule

Awwwww yeah... this is my 10th year doing this session at Minnebar.

NOTE: before then I will be posting my Spring 2018 Minnesota IT Jobs Report and will put a link here.

For this session a few slides and a lot of Q&A and discussion.

Frequent conversations I have had lately and will talk about (I'll likely add a few):

  • What the local job market is like right now
  • Why salaries have been stagnant the past 2 years
  • Are Midwest employers slow to hire junior developers
  • How to find potential employers that are not well known
  • How does the Minneapolis tech scene rank with other cities

What is on your mind? Send me a note

All levels
