Talkin’ Recruiting Robots, Automation, Sourcecon, and Netflix with Jim Stroud

I was fortunate enough to be a guest on the increasingly popular show – The Chad and Cheese Podcast! If you were among the few recruiters who missed it, no worries, I got you covered. Below is a description of what happened and the podcast itself. Tune in to hear all the fun!

The robots are coming! HR’s most dangerous podcast is back with – a slight line-up change this week – legendary sourcer/recruiter Jim Stroud stepping in for Cheese this week. The Show takes on many different aspects of automation with more of a SkyNet tone. Companies like Uber, Intel, Google, Ford, and Brilent are pushing the automation envelope and we – mere mortals – sit and watch the show while jobs evaporate. Last but not least we answer the question haunting your Netflix queue – Is Iron Fist really that bad? As always, thanks to America’s Job Exchange, WebClipDrop.io and Beyond.com for your support.
