Minnesota Morning: Twin Cities Startup Week, Teen Hackathon And MN CTO Job


Twin Cities Startup Week, Minnesota Tech, Minnesota IT Jobs


Twin Cities Startup Week is 32 days away, Sep 19-25 ‘16, and plans are coming together. Unfortunately I am going to be in Anaheim speaking at SourceCon, this is a good problem, and missing Wed-Sat. I have submitted a talk with Patrick Meenan (LinkedIn | Blog | @pmeenan1), Partner at Arthur Ventures, on networking, recruiting and scaling a team to be held Monday or Tuesday.

This is the 2nd year of the “Fly In” program where folks interested in the MN tech scene can “apply for a flight” and be reimbursed up to $300:

TCSW is proud to announce that we will be offering a fly-in program for this year's Startup week. If you are looking for potential employment with MN startups and if you are interested in attending Twin Cities Startup Week we want to hear from you.

I am one of the sponsors of this and also one of the “interviewers”. Click Twin Cities Startup Week Free Flights and fill out the form.

Minnesota Morning… Amazon Hiring In Minneapolis, 3M Hiring Millennials and #LakeLife

I am involved in a fierce battle right now and it is similar to the one I had a year ago… holding on to summer and #LakeLife as hard as I can for as long as I can and the reality that there’s A LOT going on in the tech community right now. Add in Twin Cities Startup Week and SourceCon in September and Gopher football starting in 17 days… it’s kind of over.

I’m not handling it well. Being a grown up sucks sometimes.

Recruiter jobs… if you missed it last week I posted 10 new (click) from companies including UnitedHeath Group, Medtronic and Amazon.


Amazon Minneapolis Splash

Speaking of Amazon… last week they hosted a few hundred guests to talk about their expansion into Minneapolis. The crowd was a mix of tech pros, Amazon recruiters and staff and a bunch of folks from the business community wondering what does it mean for them.

I have been consistent with my thoughts on Amazon coming to town… good. Sure it creates more recruiting pressure for everyone. For many years I have been saying that most Minneapolis companies have a week recruiting game. Time to figure out who is going to play and who is going to sit on the sidelines and complain.

Conversation With A Minneapolis Java Developer: Ageism In Tech


Ageism In

Last week I had a conversation with a late 50 year old Java Developer here in Minneapolis. He was looking for some career and job search advice. I had not yet seen his resume and not looked him up online so I had no “bias” leading up to our conversation.

We spoke a bit about his skill set, experience and what he wants to be working on. I was thinking:

Dang, I don’t get why this guy is needing advice. He’s really good.

About halfway into our chat he asked:

Why can’t us grey haired folks find a job? I am not too old to code.
