Needless to say, Chad & Cheese have some questions, focused on the recent acquisitions of HireVergence and Talenting, as well as hoping to get to the bottom of the whole blockchain in employment issue. Is Job.com destined to default to job board status, or c...

Maintaining a platform with decades of unused features, or multiple features providing the same end to a means, or a pile of feature dropdowns leading to a totally unusable system is leading indicators you possibly reside in "Feature Hell". A well-designed, user-friendly ATS is a little like trying to find Sasquatch. It apparently exists, but really hard to find. Well, lucky for you, Chad & Cheese have nabbed Bigfoot, ...

It's part 2 of our interview with Torin Ellis, DEI consultant, risk mitigator, and truth-teller! We continue to exorcise our demons while having some moped money laughs at the expense of Google, Kroger, and a very lame and lazy U.S. Department of Labor.

"Indeed gives zero fucks about employers!!!"... Yes, that's a quote from an employer... and No you're not surprised. What do you get when you cross Indeed desperation with Facebook hubris and throw in a dash of Google humility? This week's podcast, of course. What's more? Entelo's ongoing meltdown, Recruitee's (don't call it an) "acquisition" and the grownups taking over at VONQ. ...

UK-based and focused Caroo has tickled the industry's funny bone recently. With a series of marketing strategies that have pushed the boundaries of good taste (and made our eyes bleed a little), founder Gareth Peterson and team have gotten our attention. Yeah, they can cut through the clutter, but does their product have what it takes to face the Firing Squad and come out alive? You'll just have to have a listen, mate. Brou...

Crazy shit has been going down, right?  What we need right now is a good exorcism.  But it's so damned hard to allow your demons out for everyone to see, let alone exorcise them. If you live in the U.S. or have been watching the events over the past four years the demons are out, but not even close to exorcised. The Chad & Cheese sit down with Torin Ellis for a series of very uncomfortable conversations that need to happen....

We know, you'd rather play with a bag o' glass than listen to a podcast about background checks, huh? Bet you'd change your mind if you knew the guest had worked at NASA and did a stint in the South Pole though, right? In this episode, the boys join Kim Jones, professor at UC Davis, and dig into the seedy underbelly of the business of background checks and point a big finger at the HR folks who major in laziness instead...

Adzuna CEO and Founder Doug Monro have a thing or two to say about Google's anti-competitive practices, particularly around job search. He's even joined his fellow European industry heads in an official complaint against Big G, so deciding whether or not to have him on the podcast was a no-brainer. In addition to search, Doug has a lot to say about programmatic advertising, fraudulent job postings, problems with your ATS of...

When I grow up ... Super Bowl ads in our industry are back with Indeed's decision to drop $10 million-plus on an ad in the Big Game. Oh yeah, we have a lot to say about that. What's more? Job.com pulls of a read headscratcher of an acquisition, more Buy or Sell, employers Kroger, Google and Activision have been naughty, and Holland Dombeck McCue is not to be messed with.
