It’s The Shred – a mini-Chad and Cheese bite of Breaking News — This is Chad Sowash

On to the NEWS..
Wait let’s start with some reflection first.
It’s been nearly a year since Indeed’s Canadian bloodbath – I mean – acquisition of the prominent Canadian jobsite Workopolis. That’s right Indeed acquired the Workopolis brand and people were handed their walking papers… Good morning we have a new owner, you’re fired, now hand-in your badge and laptop and get the hell outta here!
Did you really expect anything different from the evil empire? I didn’t think so.
Now rumor – at the time – ZipRecruiter was also in the running to acquire Workopolis, but their focus was on keeping the employees, the company intact and basically just rebranding to ZipRecruiter. Makes sense, keep the assets, talent and keep rolling. Unfortunately, they were slower on the trigger or didn’t have a sweet evil deal like Indeed.
FAST FORWRD to TODAY
ZipRecruiter, a leading online employment marketplace powered by AI matching technology, announced that it has expanded its services to actively connect Canadian companies of all sizes with job seekers nationwide. YES ZipRecruiter is NOW IN CANADA!
Apparently, you can’t keep a good AI powered job matching platform down. Congrats to Zip, maybe you can get your hands on some of that Workopolis talent after all.

To say this week’s episode is a bit disjointed would be an understatement. But hey, we just comment on what we see happening in the world of recruitment. So, here’s a taste: CareerBuilder is still a dumpster fire, IBM really screwed up and this “Uber for … ” trend has just jumped the shark. Enjoy, […]
The boys invaded Banff in Canada last week and not only evaded arrest, but were able to record a damned good weekly show full of news, surprise guests and lots of Canadian strange brew. Enjoy and give our sponsors some love, eh? Sovren, Canvas and JobAdX make us all warm and fuzzy … even in […]
Who made the list? Listen and find out.
What happens when you put together two meatheads with public school educations and a chief economist with degrees from Yale and Harvard? God help us, we’re about to find out. The boys have a nice chat with Josh Wright of iCIMS about the gig economy and the future of work. Enjoy this Nexxt exclusive.
Feel the love on this Valentine’s Day episode of The Chad & Cheese Podcast. Let the boys buy you a drink and weave tales of Indeed getting throat-punched by Google for Jobs, Jobvite backing up the Brinks to compete in the arms race for HR tech supremacy, and how LinkedIn’s hip-to-be-square strategy is failing with Millennials. We love ya’ long time, just like our sponsors, Sovren, Canvas and JobAdX.
