    State Of Minnesota Considering Legislation Prohibiting Employers From Asking For Access To Private Social Media Accounts



    Paul DeBettignies KARE 11 Interview

    This month (March of 2019) legislation (H. F. No. 1196 & S.F. No. 1432) was introduced at the Minnesota Legislature making it illegal for employers to require access to their employees’ private accounts, to demand they be opened in front of the employer, force an employee to “friend” a superior or change privacy settings so the account can be viewed publicly.

    Whew… that’s a lot. I think I have it all straight.

    Essentially your employer or possible employer cannot make you show them your private accounts.

    There are likely going to be a few exceptions. One may be for those applying for security clearances.

    I’ve been asked a number of times including in the interview below with KARE 11 if I am aware of local employers doing this. I am not. I have not heard of one case. And no one replied to KARE 11 with one. And I am certain that any employer silly enough to do this would have a major PR issue on their hands.

    Is it needed? I guess the answer is yes if we want to be proactive and protect people.

    MSP On Deck Podcast #28: Final Podcast For One Of Us, How We Started And A Little What’s Next



    MSP On Deck Logo

    Well… we’re back after a 2 month hiatus and A LOT has changed for Kathy Grayson, Casey Allen and I and I can say this with certainty, you’ll want to listen to this episode as it is full of beginnings, endings and change. In the end… all for the better.

    We start right from the gate with Kathy changing our intro… Kathy is no longer at the Business Journal, Casey is a new and proud dad and I am a single dude. That last item is not nearly as big as the others. We’ve all known about our news items but this is the first time we’ve been all together since the end of December.

    And it felt like a long overdue family reunion.

    We start with me asking Kathy a lot of questions about her new role as a Senior Internal Digital Communications Specialist at Medtronic… what is the transition like for her and how the day to day has changed.

    We spoke about her time (12 years) at the Minneapolis St Paul Business Journal… who she liked interviewing, stories she didn’t cover and would have liked to and the Twitter accounts @StartupMJackson and @aarpangelsmn

    Alex Wittenberg is the new Kathy and he has already been doing a great job covering the Minneapolis and St Pau tech scene. You can find him => @mspbjWittenberg on LinkedIn and send him an email awittenberg@bizjournals.com

    We went in depth on how this MSP On Deck podcast started and the evolution of it. How Casey and I decided to do it, how it was easy to want to do it with Kathy, other potential podcast names we had, the audio issues, what we would different, how we came to the Foundry podcast studio, dares and top episodes.

    St Paul #10 Best City For Women In Tech


    Top 15 Cities For Women In TechFor the past five years SmartAsset has put together data (gender pay gap, income after housing costs, tech jobs filled by women and four year employment growth) and ranked them. Click The Best Cities for Women in Tech in 2019 for this years survey.

    St Paul appears on the list (again) ranking #10:

    St. Paul ranks in the top 15 for only one of our metrics: It lands at 12th for gender pay gap. But while it doesn’t hit the heights in any single metric, it also won’t leave women in tech with much to complain about. St. Paul ranks no worse than 33rd in any single metric — in the income after housing data point — and ranks in the top 20 in two metrics.

    Minneapolis appears on the larger list at #42.

    As I do… I take a look to see where we rank compared to other cities in the “Midwest”… #7 Kansas City, #11 Detroit, #14 Indianapolis & #33 Chicago.

    Previous year rankings:

    2018

    #6 St Paul

    • No city in our study has a faster growing tech industry than St. Paul. According to our data, the number of tech jobs grew by 41% from 2013 to 2016.
    • Women are fairly well-represented in the tech industry. Women in St. Paul occupy 26.4% of total tech jobs and the average women earns 89% of what the average man earns.

    #35 Minneapolis

    Minneapolis #4 Best City In The U.S. To Find A Tech Job



    Best Cities In The U.S. To Find A Tech Job

    Survey time again (I’ll have another tomorrow)… this one from AgileCraft and their post Best Cities for Tech Jobs in the US. They “… looked at some of the most demanded tech jobs as well as EMSI US Occupation hiring and salary data to come up with some interesting results.” I think by “interesting” they mean not what the average Jane or John Doe would be thinking. For those (I am one) who are always crunching numbers and analyzing surveys these numbers are what I expect to see.

    Their Top 10 Cities Hiring The Most For Tech Jobs:

    1. Atlanta
    2. Seattle
    3. Salt Lake City
    4. Minneapolis
    5. Hartford
    6. St Louis
    7. San Francisco
    8. Miami
    9. Pittsburgh
    10. Boston

    That’s right… Minneapolis is #4. Maybe it’s interesting to see Hartford and Miami on the list. The rest of the cities have all been seeing considerable job growth. Minneapolis, Atlanta and Salt Lake City frequently are mentioned as top “Tier II” cities behind the Bay Area, Seattle, New York City, Boston and Austin.

    Why Recruiters Suck So Bad



    Why Recruiters Suck So Bad

    I spend a lot of my time hanging out at tech user groups and meetups. Being a frequent face, sharing career tips, giving job search advice… creating relationships over time, builds a lot of trust.

    So, tech pros are not shy when they tell me their recruiting horror stories. They forward email, name recruiters and the companies they work for. And it is equal opportunity… it seems that search firm, consulting firm and corporate recruiters are all equal offenders.

    A number of years ago while having a video glitch at Minnebar I was asked to not start my session yet. They wanted it all on video so to pass the time I ask, “So what do you want to know?” And the room was awkwardly quiet. Then an attendee from the back of the room says with a very loud voice, “Why do recruiters suck so bad?” The room erupts in laughter and of course… the video started recording and I have a blank look on my face.

    While I share the frustration they have with poorly written job descriptions, being ghosted, doing “tell me about yourself” questions during every interview and a huge number of other offenses… I also share with them why some of this happens.

    I explain that most of my corporate recruiter friends have an insane workload, frequently their teams are understaffed and underbudgeted, recruiting tends to be an “entry level” role to HR so experience can be lacking and more. When I finish and at least for a moment… I see some empathy.

    I’ve always wanted to do a day or week in the life of a recruiter but as a consultant, my weeks rarely are the same.

    I bumped into this amazing post on LinkedIn Adding Up Why Recruiters Suck from Terra Carbert a Minneapolis Recruiter who I have known for a long time. She’s one of the good ones. Click => LinkedIn and @terracarbert to learn more about her and to say hello. I asked her if I could repost her article here and she said yes. She shows what it’s like being one of us. So the next time you think, why do recruiters suck so bad? You’ll know that much of it is not our fault and most of us really are doing the best we can.

    Thank you Terra!!!

    And if after reading you have some comments and thoughts to share (I hope you do)… don’t do it here. Click the link above and comment on Terra’s post.

    The Future Of Recruiting, Does It Include You?



    Future... Loading

    As 2018 progressed I found myself thinking a lot about being a professional recruiter, how the industry has changed since November 3, 1997 (when I started), how I’ve changed and what it may look like 5, 10 and 15 years from. Specifically, how do I stay relevant in Minneapolis and St Paul, Minnesota and the Midwest.

    I don’t tend to get too worked about this stuff but do from time to time think about my place in the world.

    Then… BAM.

    Yesterday I had a long phone call with Kevin Wheeler. I have been following Kevin for 15+ years online and 10 years ago was fortunate to have him speak at a couple of Minnesota Recruiter events and a local version of “Future of Talent” with senior corporate recruiting and HR leaders. I tend to not be a big fan of the term “futurist”, mostly because I think most people who describe themselves as one are selling snake oil, but Kevin is the exception. He works hard, is well connected, means well, is a great person and always seems a few steps ahead of the rest of us.

    To find out more about Kevin check out:

    Kevin is coming to Minneapolis on March 29, 2019 to do an event => Talent Transition: The Emerging Era of Consolidation and Adaptation. An Interactive Exploration of Key Trends. Yes, I will be attending.

    We spoke about a bunch of things:

    • What in the trenches recruiters and HR pros are facing on a day to day basis
    • What senior leaders are thinking and worrying about
    • What the region is working on
    • Why I am starting Minnesota Talent Leaders (in part to create and then maintain conversations like Kevin is going to host)
    • Trends in talent acquisition in Silicon Valley, Minneapolis and St Paul and other cities
    • How a future recession will shake up the profession

    We spent a lot of time talking about the future of recruiting… what it looks like, the impact of AI and Machine Learning, etc.

    After we finished… for a couple of hours after my brain was all over the place.

    I got to thinking about this article I wrote on ERE in 2016 => Memo to Recruiters: Don’t Want To Be Replaced By A Robot? Stop Recruiting Like One

    Minnesota Morning: Nerdery Layoffs, Apruve Funding, Remote Work And Hack The Gap This Weekend


    Good news… we have had a warmer than average winter so far and we are more than halfway through meteorological winter. Bad news… it’s gonna get freaking cold next week. We’re getting a taste of it now and next week it’s going to be full on arctic for a few days. Which gets me to this Tweet:

    19-1 Weather Tweet
    So what do you call it when the high temperature starts with a ”-“ sign?

    I’m hoping I can take this time to get a bunch of things done versus being under a blanket on the couch. Although… that would lead to a nap and I should add that on the list of things to do.


    Nerdery Layoffs

    Last week the Nerdery announced that they had let go 32 members of the team including closing the Kansas City office (a few were asked to remain remote) and a few from Minneapolis and Chicago. The announcement was posted on the company web site => Nerdery increasing focus and investing in areas of growth. Their post includes a note that they are “adding talent in the areas of data science, cloud, systems architecture, platform modernization, experience design, and more — including three C-level positions: Chief Technology Officer, Chief Revenue Officer and Chief Human Resources Officer.” Clicking => Nerdery Careers finds a number of roles with what at this time seems an emphasis on the Phoenix office. For me this is another example of a company making some changes that I wrote about => 2019 Minnesota Jobs Prediction. Many companies are going to add, cut and shift people around a lot this year.


    Apruve Funding

    Minneapolis’ Apruve Raises $6 Million in Funding was the news from Apruve yesterday. I first met Michael Noble 5+ years ago when they working at Fueled Collective. They’ve worked very hard to find the right problem/solution to work on. They’ve been close and now it seems they have it nailed down. Click Apruve Jobs to see what roles they are adding to the team.


    Remote Work

    I am always on the look out for articles about remote teams. This one => Why We’re All in on Remote Work had my full attention on the first line “People are always shocked when I tell them that SureSwift Capital is a completely remote workplace with 75 people working across 14 timezones.” Kevin McArdle, CEO and Co Founder of SureSwift Capital, walks us through the why and how they do remote work including the systems and tool they use. Click => SureSwift Capital Careers if remote work is of interest to you.

     

    Hack the Gap

    One of my favorite events is this weekend… Hack the Gap. In their 5th year “Hack the Gap is a two-day hackathon aimed at creating a high-energy weekend where women and non-binary people from all backgrounds and experience levels can enjoy an accessible, approachable, positive experience.”

    I am a past sponsor of the event and this year spoke with a few companies to lend their support. They can be a much bigger help than I can as an individual. Click Hack the Gap Sponsors and if you see a group you are familiar with send them a note thanking them. Click => Demo Day… I think you can still get tickets. And follow #hackthegap on Twitter.


    Minnesota Photos:

    This week we had the Super Blood Wolf Moon. I have been a moon gazer for as long as I can remember and I wanted to be sure to at least take a moment to witness it. I put on a bunch of layers to deal with cold thinking I had some walking to do but as I walked out the door and looked up, there it was. I could have likely taken some more artistic photos by getting the trees involved but it was late and I wanted to sleep. Click => Super Blood Wolf Moon to more Instagram photos.

    Minnesota Morning: HomeSpotter Expands, More On The Code42 Layoff/Reorg, Google Data Center And What’s Next For Minnesota Headhunter Part I



    I didn’t get much sleep this week. And I’ve already been restless the past two weeks and did not know why until a conversation with a friend at the Enterprise Rising Happy Hour and another this morning. Let’s say… I was challenged. There are a lot of things I want to do and rather than do them, try it, test it… I over think it (them) and days become weeks become months become (sometimes) never. Or some over thought idea that I squeezed the fun out of and now is not as cool as it could have been.

    Enough of that failed strategy Smile

    Do you remember the Diet Coke and Mentos videos from a decade ago? That’s how I feel. And I am going to go with it.

    More on that below…

    Here is a photo from the Enterprise Rising Happy Hour:

    19-1 Enterprise Rising Happy Hour

    Save the date for the next Enterprise Rising Conference May 8th & 9th 2019.


    HomeSpotter Expands

    Good news from HomeSpotter yesterday… they announced their first acquisition, Spacio, HQ’d in Vancouver and the addition of Dug Nichols (@dugnichols) to the team => HomeSpotter makes first acquisition, hires former Kidizen CEO (MSP Business Journal). I’ve been a long time fan of Aaron Kardell (@akardell) , CEO. We worked together a few times between 2012 and 2015 as Aaron was growing the team. He is one of the best people, personally and professionally, I’ve been around. I am assuming prepping for the announcement the HomeSpotter web site has had a refresh. Click HomeSpotter Careers… they are hiring.
