MSP On Deck Podcast #5: Scott Burns Of Structural And Osborne370


MSP On Deck, Minnesota Tech Podcast, Minnesota Startup Podcast

Yesterday I mentioned that this summer I have been working on a Minnesota startup and tech podcast with Kathy Grayson and Casey Allen called MSP on Deck. Check out =>

The first 4 podcasts are really good with a lot of “inside baseball” on topics like:

  • #4: The State (of Minnesota’s) VC ecosystem, WeWork, Osborne370 and Minnesota corporate venture capital
  • #3: Bright Health, Minnesota Angel Tax Credit, debut of MinneInno and The Nerdery Layoff
  • #2: Interning at Minnesota startups, Arthur Ventures raising a new fund and Jump Technologies, Kidizen and PetChatz/Anser Innovation funding
  • #1: Startup community mood, ReTrace Health closing, and Sports Engine exit

The 5th podcast… we definitely hit our stride and good timing as we had our first guest, Scott Burns of Structural and Osborn370. Click @smburns and LinkedIn to connect with him.

Minnesota Headhunter Chats With Chris Russell On The Rec Tech Podcast



Just before Labor Day I spent almost an hour chatting with Chris Russell for his Rec Tech Podcast. Chris and I have been long time followers of each other professionally and also of our fishing escapades. Chris is very active in the HR tech, startup and recruiting app space and is someone to follow.

You can find him on RecTech Media, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram.

We covered a lot of ground ranging from #LakeLife to the Minnesota tech scene to recruiting and more:

Recruiting Advice: Put Your “Careers” Button At The Top Of Your Page


Kipsu Jobs General Mills Jobs


Let me nerd out for a couple of minutes… where is your “Careers” or “Jobs” button on your web page?

Is it above the fold/scroll like the screen shots above from Kipsu and General Mills? Well done and you can stop reading now.

Or is it at the bottom of your web page, buried in an “About Us” drop down menu or worse, non-existent and part of another page? Then you should keep reading.

If recruiting is truly important to a company then frankly it should be at the top of the home page. Why would you ask people to scroll all the way down to find your jobs? That’s just bad user experience.

Here are the two most frequent reasons I get for this and a short reply:

  • Our web site is optimized for sales and product info
    • Umm… if you don’t have a staff how are you going to convert sales and make a product?
  • Our marketing team does not want more “clutter” on the navigation bar
    • Make a deal with them… ask them to do an A/B test and see what Google Analytics shows. If it is actually a diversion, then yeah get rid of it.

As a recruiter I want access to every tool in my toolbox that will help me do my job better and this is an often overlooked one.

50 Phrases Not To Use In Your Job Descriptions

Stop Using These Job Descriptions

A little sarcasm, small rant and moment of reflection with this one… we always see the surveys about what words and phrases not to use in resumes. You know the one’s:

“Hey dummy stop using these words. They make you look silly.”

How judgmental. Particularly when I see the same words in resumes from my Recruiter and HR Friends all the time.

And every time I see one of those lists I think/reply/rant:

“What about job descriptions?”

I think they are the more offending piece of work.
