Do you want to know when you will die? Believe it or not, scientists have developed a blood test that predicts whether or not you will die from natural causes over the next 10 years. Such being the case, would you take the test? I delve into the possibilities on this episode of “The Jim Stroud Show.” | Special thanks to my sponsor – SupaPass!
My show – “Its All Recruiting” has been on hiatus for some time but, has now returned due. In this episode, I had a great chat with my special guest – Jeff Amster, Founder of Firstscreen. Time flew by as we discussed several things; among them:
Are AI robots going to take over my recruiting job?
Challenges with video hiring solutions (creepy / introducing bias)?
Challenges with technical coding solutions for technical roles
Current industry headaches in the top of talent pipeline?
Résumé review headaches
Time wasted on initial phone interview screens
Lack of time to identify larger & more diverse candidate pools
Candidate engagement issues
ABOUT MY GUEST
With over 18 years of experience in recruiting for product, program and technical teams, Jeff Amster understood first-hand that resume reviews and initial phone screens had become an extreme pain point for talent acquisition professionals, hiring managers and candidates, and it was time for the industry to take part in re-imagining the recruiting model to alleviate collective frustration. Earlier this year, Jeff unveiled his next-generation, artificial intelligence powered HR platform helping to revolutionize organization talent acquisition recruiting processes by empowering candidates to self-serve their initial phone screen interviews while surfacing True Talent candidates. He plans to usher in a new age of talent matching with the commitment to leading edge AI technologies coupled with extremely user-friendly experiences.

Do you work in an office or from home? According to a 2017 Gallup study, 43% of Americans report spending at least some time working remotely, so chances are you do some work from home. Depending on who you ask, that’s a good thing. Working from home allows workers the flexibility to maintain that careful work-life balance and companies benefit from the increased productivity. So, working remote is a win-win all around or… is it? (dun, dun, dun…)
In this episode of “The Jim Stroud Podcast” I report on the good and bad of remote work while asking the question, is the future of work at home or at the office?
Some people think the United States is a racist country. If America is a racist country, wouldn’t that make the American workplace racist as well? Possibly. The demographics of America are rapidly changing and where there are differences there is inevitable conflict. Some of the issues are a result of ignorance to the differences represented in various cultures and as a result, racism rears its ugly head to diverse degrees.
I discuss the state of racism in the American workplace and why I think it will become worse in years to come. At the same time, I defend my country because I do not believe America is immutably racist.
