Minnesota Morning | Minnesota Engineering Blog, Minnesota Q4 2016 Venture Funding And Snoopy And Charlie Brown For Sale


Mississippi River, Downtown Minneapolis


The photo above was from this past weekend on the Hennepin Avenue Bridge looking east. It was a very calm and quiet evening in Downtown Minneapolis and it was good to take a few minutes and do some “reflecting”.


Minnesota Engineering Blog

I am a big fan of companies that show off their culture be it on Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn or a company blog. Just as when we recruit we are hoping to find more about candidates… candidates are doing the same with us. They want to check out the CTO’s Tweets, Instagram photos showing events and culture and a blog where one can understand the “voice” of a company.

Minnesota Morning | phData, Sportradar And US IT Employment


Lake Minnetonka, #LakeLife


Yesterday I was in the Lake Minnetonka area, Minneapolis west suburbs, and found myself day dreaming about #LakeLife summer days. I took this photo imagining it to be 80F and in June. Good news… days are noticeably getting longer now and winter is more than half over.


phData

Tech.mn has an article Minnesota’s Big Data Bros Are Crushing It on Brock Noland and Mac Noland (@mcdonaldnoland) co founders (and brothers) of phData. I have seen, but not yet met, them at CoCo.

STOP… What If LinkedIn Dies?


RIP Linked In


At my MTNRN presentation, click Recap: 2017 Ready, Set, GO!!! Recruiter Checklist, I had this simple slide:
 

What if LinkedIn died


My challenge was… go one day a week without using LinkedIn.

And there were some butts squirming in the chairs. A couple of recruiters said they might not be able to go an hour without using LinkedIn.

That surprised me a bit.

Minnesota Morning | Amazon Hiring 100,000, Best 50 Jobs In America And Minnesota #4 Best State To Raise A Family


Downtown Minneapolis


No rambling from me today… my mind is running in 6 different directions but while typing I saw this shared on Facebook by 10+ of my friends. Seeing that it is not a political post I clicked on it and glad I did:

 

 

Amazon Hiring 100,000 Workers

A couple of weeks ago Amazon made a big splash with an announcement of hiring 100,000 full time with benefits workers in the next 18 months. It was covered by most media outlets including here in Minneapolis. This comes after many retailers have announced layoffs and store closings.

Minnesota Morning: Hack The Gap, Amazon Minneapolis Office And The Iron Yard Demo Day


Downtown Minneapolis

 

Facebook’s “On This Day” shows me that many years this has been a cold week in Minneapolis… looks like I’ve posted a number of thoughts and photos of very cold days. That seems to parallel a local weather report I heard that this is historically the coldest week of the year. NOT this year. While we have been colder than average for much of the past month, we are experiencing a couple of +40F days and the extended forecast is above normal.

Thank you January Thaw…

Minnesota Morning | The Iron Yard, MyAlerts Funding And MN Tech Podcast


Paul DeBettignies, Minnesota Recruiter, Minnesota Headhunter

“The not so glamorous side of #recruiterlife: 12 hour day, caffeine, sandwich in the skyway, Spotify, 21 tabs and a bunch of Chrome extensions. Looking for iOS Dev's #MNtech

I posted that photo yesterday after having a conversation with a HR friend who asked if my day was always full of meetings and events. I said no, there are a lot of phone calls, sourcing and writing too. They said an occasional photo of a normal work day would be interesting. That’s fair… I think a view into what a full work day is like might be interesting including the “boring” stuff and 11 pm sourcing sessions.

Minnesota Morning | Do It Now, Minnesota Recruiter Jobs And Minnesota Jobs Scene


It’s 2017… it feels good to say that.

Not because 2016 sucked or was an awful year. 2016 was a year of business and personal confirmation. I don’t know that I learned a lot of new things… but I validated/affirmed what I thought was true. What I thought I was good at I am freaking good at it. What I thought I suck at I really suck at. And the people I have around me, are the best. I’m a lucky guy.

Knowing all that, for me, is HUGE.

I have been looking forward to 2017 and taking a number of big steps this year. That includes the next item…


New Year’s Resolutions

I don’t do them. I never have. Nothing wrong with them but I think any day you wake up you can make a change. So why wait 365 days to do them.
