Entelo & Pymetrics Panic Sale?

London Calling

8/10/2022
Europe is surging! Travel is way up, the cash is flowing and employers of all shapes and sizes are embracing the continent, in light of Covid being in the rearview mirror. Most notably, London is the world's hottest new destination for employers and innovative companies, while Spotify is giving us a blueprint for increased retention, greater diversity and salary equality.

8/8/2022
Make yourself comfortable, boys and girls, because it's story time. On this episode, the boys bring Tim Dineen, co-founder, and chief innovation officer at Recruitics on the show. For those who don't know Tim, he was also the search engine optimization brains at Indeed back in the 00s. It's fair to say Indeed wouldn't be Indeed without Tim, which is why we rev-up the "way back machine" and pull back the covers on the early days of Indeed, as well as what the future may hold. For those who...

Jonathan Siddharth, CEO and founder at Turing, joins the boys to discuss what makes Turing different, how Upwork gets it wrong, and why pay transparency and equality are still such a hurdle.

Oh hell, you'll just have to listen if you're not following. What else? Job.com goes shopping and its CEO gets salty with the media.

Reunion Squad: Honeit's Nick Livingston

7/20/2022
Most reunions suck. You have to pretend to look younger, more successful, and skinnier than you really are. And then there are those stupid name tags with your senior picture on them. Don't even get me started. Anyway, other reunions - like Firing Squad reunions - are awesome! That's why we invited Firing Squad alum Honeit, and their CEO Nick Livingston back on the show after 4 years to see how things are going. Spoiler alert: They're going pretty well. How well?

Assessment Witchcraft w/ Caitlin MacGregor

7/13/2022
For as long as employee assessments have been around, they're still largely a mystery to most employers. Sort of like witchcraft or a pagan ritual from the Middle Ages, most companies enter the assessment game with a lot of confusion and fear. That's why we invited Plum's Caitlin MacGregor co-founder and CEO on the podcast to make sense of it all and relieve listeners from the pain assessment tests can sometimes bring. We're talkin' death of resumes, threats to employer branding, and being...

Secret Weapon: Storytelling w/ Patrick Hodgdon

7/11/2022
Humans have been telling stories for as long as we've been around. So, it's no surprise employers who tell the best stories are typically the ones who get the best workers. It matters. That's why we invited Patrick Hodgdon, VP of marketing at hot startup FactoryFix on the Cult Brand Series with RecruitmentMarketing.com's Julie Calli to explore what companies are doing right, and most importantly wrong when it comes to storytelling.

The Trucking Conundrum

7/8/2022
Hiring is tough for many different verticals and in many ways, the trucking industry is nothing more than a microcosm of those hiring fails and pains. Maybe it's time for trucking to undergo a rebrand? Maybe it's much more than that? That's why Chad & Cheese join the Yard Jockeys podcast to talk about the ins and outs of recruiting. They put their heads together to try and figure out trucking's problem and come up with a possible solution. B.J. and the Bear from the '70s anyone?
