A decade ago, I co-hosted a popular podcast – The Recruiters Lounge [TRL] with Karen Mattonen. In October, I will begin posting these classic episodes and taking note of how things have changed, how I may have evolved or whether or not all things are the same. This 2009 episode focuses on Tattoos in the Workplace and a great conversation with Mitchell Chasin, MD. Tune in on all the fun and please do share your thoughts wherever you listen to this podcast.
Can you imagine an artificially intelligent version of yourself living on after you’ve died? It might be possible with new technologies being developed at Amazon. Plus, I share several pop-culture references from the 80’s. Can you name them all? Tune in and find out!

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then a video’s worth can be ten-fold and maybe more than that. Employers who incorporated videos in their recruitment and talent attraction efforts were able to better connect with their talent, share authentic storytelling and provide a better candidate experience and build a strong employer brand. Sounds like videos are a must-have tool for amplifying your employer brand!
