Google drops another bomb on the recruitment tech space

Last week The Google Cloud Team made some intriguing announcements at their Next ’18 Conference…

Announcement #1

Google’s Jobs API is now open to everyone!!

That’s right kids the Google Job Search buffet line is open!

And this is great because we’ve heard stories about the success of Google’s Cloud Job Discovery – it’s obviously NOT due to Google’s marketing and product naming prowess, but purely due to Google’s amazing ability to kick machine learning and AI — square in the ass.

Now YOU can have great job search like Johnson and Johnson who is touting a 41% increase in qualified candidates applying to hard-to-fill positions like scientist positions HOLY SHIT are you kidding me? — or how about CareerBuilder who has developed recruiting technology for over a decade and pretty much said “Screw this job search stuff — Google’s does it better”

What does that mean for all of you vendors out there? Well, I’d start breathing deeply into a paper bag because EVERY EMPLOYER KNOWN TO HUMANKIND will be asking for your product to include Google Job Search.

Announcement #2

The wasckly wabbits over at Google Cloud just launched a new product name for their recruiting API services — Say goodbye to Cloud Jobs Discovery – that name sucked anyway… Say Hello to Cloud Talent Solution… Seriously Google? That’s the best you got?!?

Why a new name anyway? It’s a necessity since ANNOUNCEMENT #3 happened… a NEW CANDIDATE SEARCH API was launched. That’s right kids Google isn’t only going to outperform your job search, they’re going to embed their candidate search in candidate profile / resume db everywhere!

So grab that paper bag and start breathing in and out slowly because on this Friday’s episode of Chad & Cheese HR’s Most Dangerous Podcast we’re going to answer questions like:

What kind of stats will Google be sharing? We’ll give them to ya!
How good can this candidate search be anyway?
When will Google go the next step and provide candidate matching?
Is Indeed finally going to play ball?
What should Employers and Vendors do?
Does this heightened candidate search kill Boolean strings?
Will Careerbuilder just replace their logo with Google’s?
Chad was talking about the possibility of this new API last year… Why is Chad always right?
All that and more comin’ to you on this week’s Chad & Cheese Podcast…

Big thanks to Judge for supporting The Shred – The Judge Group People Powered Business Solutions – Judging people since 1970… and if you haven’t been Judged and you need Healthcare and IT professionals — what the hell are you waiting for?

Snag Ousts CEO — MSFT Targets Slack

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

On to the NEWS…

Pivots can’t save everyone…

Snag – aka Snagajob – the hourly hiring platform just outsed their CEO Peter Harrison. Why? Well, pull up some Glassdoor reviews and that might start to answer the question of Harrison’s kick to the curb. Harrison’s 41 percent CEO approval rating – which sucks btw – and most of the negative reviews focus on a lack of leadership – never a good thing for a CEO.

Not too mention in 2016 then Snagajob’s landscape changed immensely with an infusion of an additional $100m investment, now the cash wasn’t the biggest change rather.. that cash shifted control to outside investment firms. Ohhhh NELLY!

And also remember Snag’s sweetspot is the SMB market and with Zip killing it, LinkedIn licking their chops and Facebook – yea Facebook joining the party it’s getting more than competitve at the SMB party!

Who will be the new face of Snag? Fabio Rosati of Upwork fame – you know the freelance job site that accrued 14 million users in 180 countries and more than $1 billion in annual billings. Yea that Fabio Rosati… But will Fabio be enough to get the SMB platform through the competition and the new Uber-like hourly start-ups?

Who knows but it’s gonna to be fun watching…

Microsoft is going to drink Slack’s milkshake — Yes There will be blood

Slack a business communication and productivity platform has to defend it’s flank from Microsoft Teams a competitor to Slack who has just launched a FREE version.

According to Quartz… The new free Microsoft Teams platform is aimed at small and medium-size businesses. It’ll be free for an organization’s first 300 users, and each user will be given 2 GB of storage, along with 10 GB that the team can share.

This news should send Slackers into a painic…

Teams is integrated with the Microsoft suite and are targeting Slack.

Joel and I always talk about who will acquire Slack… Well Microsoft isn’t in the market to acquire Slack who has $790m in funding, they want to kill them, but what about Google? Who else do you think should be eyeing Slack – let us know on Twitter, just use #chadcheese, on LinkedIn connect and ping us or stop on by the chadcheese.com site and leave us a message.

We might just be talking about Snag and Teams v Slack milkshake on the next episode so join the discussion.
