Recruiting For Minnesota Startups Added To Twin Cities Startup Week

September 9-14, 2014 is and I am doing a presentation September 12 from 12 pm - 2 pm at CoCo Downtown Minneapolis:

Recruiting For Minnesota Startups

Recruiting For Minnesota Startups is a presentation I have done numerous times over the years at MinneBar and this spring through the Google for Entrepreneurs program.

Here are details:

If you already know how to find a co founder, recruit a CTO and build a team of 20+... this is not for you.

If you are like most groups and having some difficulty sourcing, recruiting and closing candidates... this conversation is for you.

NOTE: this is about creating a recruiting strategy that works for tech, marketing or any kind of company or firm.

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

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