My name is Paul DeBettignies and I am the Managing Partner of e-Strategies Group, Inc. a Twin Cities based third party recruiting firm. We have been in business since April of 1998.

I am a 1995 graduate of the University of Minnesota, BA International Relations.

Here is a brief background on our firm:

-Eight years in operation.
-Mostly perm placement some contract.
-Relationship based model vs. the commonly used Transaction model
-Use a flexible fee schedule.
-Strong advocated for our clients.
-Fun and easy to work with.
-Respectful of the internal recruiting process

My firm does its best work in two situations. The first, as a trusted business partner and advocate for our clients. We tend to form strong relationships, business and personal. The second is doing the tough, hard to find search that most firms pass on. We believe that our clients should only pay us or any recruiter for candidates they have not been able to find on their own.

This site will focus on employment and business news important to recruiters, third party and corporate, the candidates we recruit, job search tips, promoting volunteerism in the I.T. community, the infrequent moderate political rant, and the frequent posting regarding Minnesota Golden Gopher football.


in my free time i spend time on the following activities: chapter advisor, delta kappa epsilon fraternity at the university of minnesota; co-founder, minnesota greek alumni partnership, university of minnesota; teach a seminar on “job search” to community groups; volunteer time with non-profits whose focus is on the under/unemployed; fishing; gopher football
