Minnesota Recruiters In Demand - Spring 2020



Minnesota Recruiters In Demand 2020

NOTE: What follows was written the 3rd week in February prior to the major global concerns of Coronavirus, the Wall Street correction and then fear of pandemic and a resulting global recession. As I post this there is not enough data and information to make further predictions. My last sentence below is a bit ironic/haunting.

When I last wrote about Minnesota Recruiters being in demand, , I was thinking that we finally hit the pause button or a plateau in recruiter demand and the job economy in general. The dreaded “R” word was being kicked around a lot of places as being on the horizon and I was thinking maybe we were going to find a new “normal”. Still hiring but not at the same frenetic pace. Sort of a slow down and busier than usual.

I was wrong.

Things have not changed in a significant way.

As you look at the image above, you see a lot of data points in the bottom 1/3. That represents the number of recruiter jobs I posted monthly from 2010 to 2017.

2018 is the gray color and you see that it breaks out from the previous years data and then… keeps climbing.

2019 is the blue color.

2020 is the black color.

In short, the economy did not slow down further the rest of the year and many thought that was the dip in the economy that was predicted. And if so… not so bad.

Recruiting Advice: Career Page I



Career Page Advice

Go to your company web site. Take a look at it… how does it feel? How does it look? How does it sound? Does it speak to the clients, customers and businesses you’re trying to attract? Does it answer the questions they may have before buying your product, doing business with you?

We hope so.

Now go to your career page. Take a look at it… how does it feel? How does it look? How does it sound?

Is it the same tone and language as the rest of the web site?

WHY???

Let me challenge you…

We can agree that the customers (candidates) that you are attracting to your career page and job descriptions are different than who you are selling to, right?

Stripping It Down… Going Acoustic



Going Acoustic

(Photo by 42 North from Pexels)

I was tired of the noise… of things being over thought and more complicated than they needed to be. And that was just my brain and what it had been doing for a long time. Then add in everyone, everything else and their noise. It was a lot.

And then I had a moment.

A couple of months ago, I remember this vividly, I was driving home on a Friday afternoon and it had been a chaotic week. A really good one for sure but one that had my brain feeling like my ears did after a concert. That fuzzy, buzzing sound. I needed some quiet.

Then a song came on the radio from Matt Nathanson. He redid some Def Leppard tunes, I was not yet aware, including Hysteria.

Minnesota Morning: I Was Scolded Today



I was scolded today

I met an old friend at a coffee shop today and they gave me a legit smack down. It’s not how our chat started nor why we were getting together.

At one point they asked me about what I am working on, thinking about, ideas on my mind, events I am going to be attending and what is going on in the Minnesota recruiter and tech scene.

I had answers for all of that of course.

That’s when it started…

They wanted to know how they or anyone would know anything about any of it other than a few posts on Twitter and Instagram.

“You don’t” was my easy answer.

“That’s your problem” was their quick reply.

Conversation With A CTO: Do You Interview To Include Or Exclude Candidates From The Process



Interviewing

I’ve had a repeating experience when speaking with hiring managers and I finally figured out how to ask them a question that would get to the core of the matter:

“When you interview, do you ask questions to include or exclude people from the process?”

I asked this of a CTO this week, who is struggling to hire, and they asked me what I was getting at. It seemed to me as they described what was going on, lots of interviews and no offers, that they are eliminating people at a higher than average rate.

I asked a hiring manager what was missing from a particular candidate, who I know of. They said the candidate was missing “these things” and rattled off four missing criteria from the job description.

“OK... so they have sixteen of your criteria including all of the must have’s, the core things, and you eliminated them.”

We all had a moment of contemplation… not so much me as I knew what they were thinking. The CTO was annoyed at the interview process and wondering how many talented candidates had been flushed out. The Hiring Manager was annoyed because they were called out for being critical and seeking perfect people. The Director of HR was annoyed at the Hiring Manager because they already had this conversation but only now was it being thought about.

Top 100 Jobs In The U.S. 2020



Best Job In 2020U.S. News and World Report has put out their 100 Best Jobs in 2020. I, being a list person, always find these things interesting mostly to see if it jives with what I am experiencing here in the Midwest and to compare to previous and other lists to find trends.

I like their list as their methodology takes into account a variety of things including: salary, unemployment rate, 10-year growth volume and percentage, future job prospects, stress and work life balance.
