PODCAST – Recruiting the sexes, spamming the EEOC and job-stealing immigrants

The Retro Lounge Podcast Series
The Retro Lounge is the home of classic episodes of “The Recruiters Lounge” podcast that aired between 2005-2009. Tune in to hear how it was and how little has changed.

Original air date: November 16, 2007 – In this episode, Jim Stroud and Karen Mattonen discuss bringing your spouse to your interview. Karen thought is was a good idea but Jim, not so much. Did you know someone was spamming the EEOC for fun and profit? Did immigrants steal all the jobs, or did we just give them away? And in the category of “beating a dead horse,” Jim and Karen harp (again) on age discrimination. | Special thanks to our sponsor – Proactive Talent.
