      Video: Finding A Job Using Social Media

      Back in May (2015) I gave my 6th presentation at Social Media Breakfast Minneapolis St Paul:

      Get Recruited: Finding Your Next Job Through Social Media

      When Mykl Roventine asked me to speak again this year I paused thinking… does anybody really want to hear from me again?

      Mykl was right (Mykl warming up the group):

      Social Media For Job Search, Minnesota Jobs, Minneosta Headhunter, Minnesota Recruiter

      The answer was yes. We had 100+ at the event.

      And we had a good time.

      Here are a couple of blog posts recapping the event with some takeaways:

      Survey: 20% Of IT Pros Are Not On LinkedIn… Some Thoughts

      LinkedIn For Recruiting, Minneosta Recuriter, Minnesota IT Jobs

      A survey from Stack Overflow says that 20% of those surveyed (those on Stack Overflow) do not have a LinkedIn profile.

      Like with all surveys (I say this every time I post something like this) the “who was surveyed” matters. Maybe the IT pros on Stack Overflow are less likely by nature to also be on LinkedIn?

      I don’t want to get lost in that part although I was surprised given what I hear at tech groups and meetups in Minneapolis the number is not higher. Yes, I said higher.

      Minnesota IT Jobs: How Stiff Is The Recruiting Competition From Silicon Valley?

      “There’s no way we can compete with Facebook.”

      My reply:

      “Who cares?”

      That was part of an IM with CTO a couple of weeks ago after one of his senior developers gave his two weeks notice. He is leaving for Silicon Valley and Facebook.

      With there being a number of these stories the past 24 months a lot of locals, from recruiters to CEO’s, are concerned with the “exodus” to the West Coast.

      As I noted in my (video posted below) we have had a number of Silicon Valley, San Francisco and Seattle tech companies recruiting here. This is a slide as an example of Amazon’s activity here (click to enlarge):

      Amazon Recruiting In Minneapolis

      I don’t think Facebook, Amazon and other West Coast tech companies recruiting here are the big issue.

      Minnesota IT Jobs: Do We Have Enough Talent In Minnesota?

      I posted the for 2015 yesterday (and below) and have already had a number of inquiries mostly from Minnesota startup and tech company (a few from San Francisco and Silicon Valley) CEO’s – CIO’s – CTO’s – Recruiters asking some version of this question:

      Do we have enough IT pros in Minnesota?

      That’s a loaded question because I already know they believe the answer is no. And the reason why is they are having a hard time with hiring.

      This is my perspective and opinion, just want to get that out there before saying this…

      YES there is.

      And companies are proving it every day.

      A large number of companies are growing their teams, some of them significantly and with little effort.

      The question should be:

      How big is the pool of people who want to work at this location, in this culture, with these benefits, on this product, with these people, for this CEO, with this manager, at this salary and do we have an effective recruiting strategy?

      Minnesota IT Jobs, Salary and Recruiting Report Summer 2015

      The most frequently asked questions I receive are some variations of:

      What’s going on with Minnesota IT Jobs?

      What’s the going salary/rate for a…

      “War for Talent” real or not?

      How in demand are my skills?

      Why can’t we find who we are looking for?

      To give some clarity about “what’s going in Minnesota” around this time of year (after all the spring events and conferences) I put together a summary of all of the info I have gathered over the past months, add in a bunch of reference points from national IT job and salary surveys and put it online.

      The 2015 version below is 32 minutes in length with 95 slides…. it moves pretty quick:

      • Intro
      • What’s going on in MN
      • Recruiting & Retention
      • Job and Skills in demand
      • Salary info
      • Conclusion

      If you are a startup CEO, in HR or a corporate recruiter, tech manager or CIO, coordinate a tech group or are an IT professional (did I leave anyone out?) and have questions, thoughts or comments, or want a copy of the slide deck send me an email:

      paul@mnheadhunter.com
