This all really started in Minnesota with a guy named Paul DiBettignies. Almost ten years ago, Paul was recruiting in the Twin Cities and just wanted to hang around other people doing what he was doing, recruiting. Paul started Minnesota Recruiters (mnrecruiters.com) to help better his own recruiting skills and the skills of his recruiting friends in his area.  That grew into quarterly one-day recruiting conferences where hundreds came to learn how to recruit better, raise the function of Talent Acquisition as a whole and network with like-minded professionals. 

HR has tons of these opportunities: local SHRM events, Michigan HR Day, State SHRM conferences, SHRM national.  What does Talent Acquisition have?  ERE national, is about it, and if you’re like most talent acquisition departments, you just don’t have the money to invest in national conferences for your people.

We believe we can learn from what Paul built in Minnesota and make it even better in Michigan!  This is why we started MichiganRecruits.com and the Michigan Recruiters Conference.

Who’s behind all of this?


Jim D’Amico, the Director of Talent Acquisition at Spectrum Health, has nearly 20 years of experience in talent acquisition and HR. The first half of his career focused on third party recruiting, including building a successful RPO business.For the last 10 years he has built best-in-case talent acquisition centers of excellence for global companies. In his (limited) free time, he is a working stand-up comedian and writer.


Tim Sackett is the President of HRU Technical Resources in Lansing, MI.  Tim has run corporate talent acquisition shops at Applebee’s, ShopKo Stores and Sparrow Health Systems.  He is the Chief Storyteller at the insanely popular Talent Blog, Fistful of Talent, and he is a sought after speaker worldwide on both Talent and HR topics.  He also writes daily about recruiting and HR on his own blog The Tim Sackett Project

Jim and Tim met in social media blogosphere and bonded over their love of recruiting and their great sense of humor.  After many talks, they decided that their own teams needed this, and maybe, just maybe, there were some other Talent Acquisition leaders out in Michigan who were feeling the same way they were, and wanted development for their team. 

This is all volunteer. It is not our intent for this to be a profit making venture. We charge as a little as we can to still pay the bills associated with putting on an event like this and provide outstanding content. We are always looking for “Corporate” sponsors to hold these events. If your organization sponsors, your recruiting team attends the conference for free.
