Chad & Cheese Does Europe

6/16/2021
Some podcasters do it for the fun. Chad & Cheese? Global domination. That's why we've set our sites on Europe after conquering America and have enlisted the help of some locals to make sense of the Old Country. In this episode, the first-ever from the new 'Does Europe' show, the boys discuss the labor crunch and ongoing work-from-home issues plaguing European employers and workers. Then they throw in some Facebook bullsh!t for good measure.

6/14/2021
Welcome to LGBTQ+ for Dummies -- Part 2 It's PRIDE month and we're celebrating and learning more about the LGBTQ+ community.

Take This Job and Shove It

6/11/2021
A 1970s' Johnny Paycheck song captures the feeling of today's job market. Take This Job and Shove It! Yes, even with an unprecedented number of unfilled jobs and quitting on the rise, will we be able to find the balance people desperately need? Change is hard, and Chad & Cheese are dropping a nightly recording over beers and bourbon to work out all this post-pandemic drama. SAP treats employees like adults, while Apple's controlled WFH "culture" strategy starts a mutiny. Don't worry kids, if...

Guess who's coming to Europe?

6/6/2021
Guess who's coming to Europe? On March 10th, 2017 The Chad and Cheese launched our first show. Over the years, Joel and I have focused heavily on the US market while trying our best to find relevant and smart global stories and as our global base of loyal listeners grew we started having discussions around a more European-based show, but we needed someone embedded in the European market to bring that certain je ne sais quoi, but most of all someone who could provide great European insights...

Stack the Steal

6/4/2021
It's a Stack-quisition... Wait, that sounds familiar! Stack the Steal! Dollar bills, ya'll! Developer community Stack Overflow, one of the 50 most popular websites in the world, was acquired this week for a juicy $1.8 billion, an absolute steal by Github standards. What else? The boys play a little Buy-or-Sell, then discuss the ongoing nightmare that is labor shortages, vaccine mandates, and chase it all with a little change in weed testing at Amazon. Finally, it turns out potheads can...

Snark Attack w/ Matt Charney

6/2/2021
Time to turn the snark up to eleven, people. Four years in the making, industry icon - or at least iconic in millennial terms - Matt Charney sits down with the boys for a chat about his latest role at SmartRecruiters, his take on the hottest HR tech vendors at the moment, and his distaste for most-things-SHRM.

ZipRecruiter Trash Talk

5/28/2021
ZipRecruiter? More Like Dip-Recruiter... Am I right? The boys both turn 50-years-old this week, which means a lot of mature, grown-up, and responsible commentary on the world of work. Ha! Just kidding, they talk trash about the ZipRecruiter IPO, Amazon buying MGM, BrightHire raising money, Jumpstart rebranding as Canvas (bet that's fun for salespeople who have to field questions about text recruiting now), the world losing its collective mind over WFH, and weed in the workplace. Whew!...

Panic, Truth, & Fire w/ Allyn Bailey

5/26/2021
Allyn Bailey first joined us on a stage in Canada at The Gathering as Intel's Talent Acquisition Transformation Manager. She blew us away. Since then, she got promoted and has since moved on, so we thought it might be a good time to have her back on the show. We chat about the advancements in technology and tools, the increased demands from organizations dealing with new workforce needs, the current state of recruitment marketing, and TA in a big company vs. an SMB. Get comfy for this one,...

Mya, Wade & Wendy Ménage à Trois

5/21/2021
This week's episode reads like an alternative to the movie Boogie Nights. We're talkin' a Mya, Wade & Wendy ménage à trois, strippers and exploding vaginas. Oh, and we even have a European standing in for Chad, who's basking in the Costa Rica sunshine. A-hole! To stick it to him, we discuss Amazon and checks from the government in his absence. Let's get funky! As always, Sovren, JobAdx and Jobvite are bringing the kink.

Handshake's Ultimate Hand Job

5/14/2021
It's an episode full of head-scratchers and high fivers. Oh, and a unicorn. Handshake is now in the Billionaire Valuations Club, which these days is just called another week in TA tech. Outmatch acquired Harver, which sets them up nicely for The Great Reopening, and Glassdoor wannabe Blind raised a bunch of money and even introduced a revenue model (semi-anonymity might actually work out ... or not). In the post-pandemic segment, Google's labor union keeps kicking ass, Wendy's comes up...

Firing Squad: JobDescription.ai's Oras Al-Kubaisi

5/10/2021
Job descriptions used to be so easy. Five lines in the local newspaper and done. Then the Internet came along and gave us unlimited white space, leading to a serious lack of quality ever since. No, copying and pasting from Craigslist does not stellar job postings, so here comes JobDescriptions.ai to try and solve a really big problem, helping automate listings and optimize them in the process. Can founder Oras Al Kubaisi tame the fury of Firing Squad and elicit rousing applause? Gotta...

Indeed Gonna Indeed

5/7/2021
Just when Indeed looks like they've run out of spaghetti to throw at the wall, they did what this week? We're clearly not in Kansas anymore, Dorothy! This week's topics are confusing at best. Who's steering the ship at "The World's Largest Job Site."? Facebook Workplace makes us ask ourselves WTF? Uncomfortable white guys at Basecamp send a third of the staff running. Return to work confusion continues at big companies like Google and JP Morgan. and we throw in drones and military dogs...
