Millennials And Generation X Are Seeking Different Tech Jobs And Skills

Indeed Hiring Lab

This should not be a shock… Millennials and Gen X’ers are looking for different kinds of tech jobs and skills to do it. Surely being in different places of their career, interests, free time, families and finances play a part in it. What is interesting to me is seeing some data about it. Some apples to apples to comparison.

A couple of months ago Indeed had Older and Younger Workers Seek Different Tech Jobs and as usual I am attracted to some data, finding trends, testing if what I think is true or is not.


Job posts by age:

Job seekers ages 21 - 39                               Job seekers ages 40 - 64

Working Wednesday Vol I: Minneapolis And St Paul Tech And Digital Jobs With Daugherty Business Solutions, Structural And Clockwork



Minnesota Tech Jobs


10 years ago as the “Great Recession” was having a significant impact on the Minneapolis, St Paul and Minnesota jobs scene I and others were regularly Tweeting out companies who were hiring and those who were looking for work. As it is appearing we are close to some form of “full employment” a number of companies I know of are recruiting and I have been thinking of different ways to get this out to others in an easy way.

I have been doing this for years with and . But those are just postings… there is also news to share, jobs outside of tech and recruiting and companies that are hiring across multiple skill sets.

So my idea is to do a weekly blog post and do a better job at sharing what I know.

If you have any ideas on how to format this better I gladly take them.

If you are hiring and want others to know about it send me an email paul@mnheadhunter.com and include links, background info, etc.

Volume I… here goes:

Clients:

Currently most of my time is with Daugherty Business Solutions with a BIG recruiting focus on Project Managers, Scrum Masters and Sr Developers with a Java emphasis. Click Daugherty Business Solutions Minneapolis for all the roles we are recruiting for. If you see something you are interested in send me a note and I gladly give you a bunch of info. And if you are or know of a PM or Scrum Master… seriously, send me a note. I’m working a lot of hours and it is impacting my fishing time Smile

Daugherty has been creating some videos to better tell our story… here is one of the new ones:

Survey: Minneapolis-St Paul #1 Best City To Find A Tech Job



Minneapolis Tech Jobs, Minneapolis IT Jobs

ZipRecruiter has a survey that combines their “Best Job Market” and “Opportunity” Indexes with info from PayScale and Zillow that gives a list of The Best 10 Cities To Startup Your Tech Job Search.

Minneapolis comes in at #1:

1. Minneapolis-St. Paul, MN

Median Tech Salary: $72,800

Median Home Price: $257,700

Number of Paychecks Needed for a Down Payment: 21

The Twin Cities shouldn’t be thought of as an icy Midwestern outpost dominated by agriculture and manufacturing jobs. In fact, the metro area ranks 12th in the nation for tech workforce participation, according to the latest CompTIA data, with nearly 10% of the all workers in the Twin Cities employed in the tech industry. Minneapolis-St. Paul boasts a diverse array of tech jobs ranging from hot startups to cutting-edge jobs in biotech. It’s also an incredibly livable city, ranking at or above the 80th percentile in our index for health, affordability, and transit.

Other cities in the Top 10:

2. Washington D.C.

3. Albany, NY

4. Omaha, NE

5. Des Moines, IA

6. Pittsburgh, PA

7. Huntsville, AL

8. St. Louis, MO

9. San Francisco, CA

10. Denver, CO

No… we, “…shouldn’t be thought of as an icy Midwestern outpost…” I agree with that. It’s interesting that most every survey mentions our winter. Seriously folks, we need to show there are additional seasons besides winter.

Regarding the survey… I’m not surprised we rank high or #1. When surveys include lifestyle things like, “…account for cost of living, transit, walkability, commute time, and even a health grade.” we are going to do well.

Super Talented Minnesota Grads Are Working At Top Tech Companies Nationally



Minnesota Tech Jobs

I’m sitting in the passenger seat as we drive from Fargo back to Minneapolis and as I stare out the window I have been thinking about recruiting to our region (really, this is on my mind)… and how do we get more people to move to the area. I think about this a lot.

Then about a conversation I had this week about how everyone is recruiting and few groups are really working on retention.

And that gets me to this… as a region we need to do a better job at getting people to stay. Sure, some folks are going to leave (family reasons, wanting to experience a larger tech hub, experience something new, etc.) but what about the ones who wanted to stay and couldn’t find the right role?

A month ago I had a chat with a Full Stack Developer who interviewed with a number of Minneapolis and St Paul companies (startups, software and Fortune 500) and in each case did not get an offer. They are talented but it seemed that each group was being very specific about the skills they were looking for and willing to wait to find that one right person.

Yet… they received offers from Google and Salesforce.

That gets me to the presentation LinkedIn gave at Tech Cities 2018. They provided a bunch of data on the local tech scene including this…

“Notable employers of grads from MN universities by location”:

  • Amazon - Seattle

  • Microsoft - Seattle

  • Google - San Francisco Bay Area

  • Apple - San Francisco Bay Area

  • Intel - Portland

  • Facebook - San Francisco Bay Area

  • LinkedIn - San Francisco Bay Area

  • Salesforce - San Francisco Bay Area

  • Uber - San Francisco Bay Area
