Paul DeBettignies Interview On Drive ThruHR

Paul DeBettignies, Minnesota Recruiter









Drive ThruHR is hosted by William Tincup (@williamtincup), Bryan Wempan (@bryanwempen) and Nisha Raghaven (@thehrbuddy) and every day during the lunch hour (Noon CT) for 30 or so minutes they speak with someone in the HR and Recruiter space.

Last week I was a guest and had a fun conversation with William.

Some of the topics we covered:

  • Recruiting for startups in Minneapolis
  • STEM and the talent shortage
  • Why companies don’t do internships
  • Salaries and compensation
  • Glassdoor
  • My favorite interview question
  • How to figure out if candidates and clients are a good fit
  • How I find tech folks
  • Passive vs Active candidates
  • “Garden of Eden” there is no perfect place to work
  • My new client and revenue model
  • #LakeLife vs #RecruiterLife

Yeah… my use of “sucks” was high. Given it was a Friday and a chat with a friend it is understandable.

Unfortunately it sounds like my cell reception was not as good as it could be.
