Paul DeBettignies Speaking At Social Media Breakfast: Personal Branding
Minnesota Recruiter Jobs

Event: Recruiting For Minnesota Startups

Google For Entrepreneurs Minnesota Headhunter, Minnesota Recruiter, Minnesota IT Jobs

At MinneBar 9 I did not do my “Recruiting For Startups” like I had the previous 3 years… I should have. I spent a good chunk of my day answering questions, giving advice and helping create recruiting strategies.

These are conversations I enjoy… I messed up by not doing the session.

Fortunately this topic fits under the “Black Box” program through Google for Entrepreneurs at CoCo.


Recruiting For Startups

Who should attend:

Startup or early stage company CEO, CXO, VP/Dir of IT, Founder/Co Founders who do not have HR or a Recruiter on staff and are recruiting now or before the end of 2014.


June 2nd
6 - 8 pm



CoCo Downtown Minneapolis
400 South Fourth Street
Suite #401

Recruiting For Startups

If you are like most groups recruiting IT pros, you are to some extent having difficulty sourcing, recruiting and closing candidates.

What is the agenda?

One part presentation and one part discussion. I’m going to cover a lot of ground including:

  • Career page content
  • Writing better job ads
  • LinkedIn
  • Twitter and Facebook
  • Creating talent pools
  • Employer branding
  • Networking
  • Closing candidates

While I have a bunch of information I know most startups need… your questions, stories and thoughts are requested.

If you are new to me and wondering why you would want to spend a couple of hours talk about recruiting here is my bio:
