Managing Your IT Career v11 (Why do recruiters suck so bad?)

by Paul DeBettignies

NOTE: before then I will be posting my Spring 2019 Minnesota Tech, Recruiting, IT Jobs, and Salary Report and will put a link here.

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

Frequent conversations, questions and topics I have had lately at Minnedemo, user groups/meetups and a CTO round table (I'll likely add a few):

  • What the local job market is like right now
  • Why there seems to be more hiring and layoff announcements
  • Why salaries that had been stagnant the past 2 years may be increasing a bit
  • I don't have the years of experience a company is looking for, what should I do
  • How to network in the MN tech scene
  • How does the Minneapolis tech scene rank with other cities

What is on your mind? Send me a note paul@mnheadhunter.com
