On to the News – Monster Layoffs

100+ Monster employees have boxed up their gear and headed toward the door today. This is never a happy time in any organization, especially one trying to emerge from the job board ashes.

Monster CEO Scott Gutz said, “The impacted positions are across all functions and geographies with a focus on the globalization of our products and marketing initiatives, transforming how we sell to and service our customers, and redirecting resources to next generation technology and data solutions.”

So, did Gutz pull this trigger to start movement toward globalization of products or was he forced to do so after Monster fell short on 2018 goals? Remember headcount in usually a company’s biggest expense and this could provide additional runway…

From the outside looking in, it seems Monster has invested an immense amount of time, effort, and money on their Monster Studios video offering, which was announced in October of last year and just rolled out in beta to 100+ clients.

Over 100 people are gone and all we can see is a short runway for Monster, with only a NEW video offering to drive and retain revenues.

The big question is will Video kill the Job Board star? Or save it?

Europe Trolls Chad & Cheese

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

On to the NEWS….

European start-ups are upping their Death Match acceptance game via video.

But first let’s do some quick background adding context for all of you newcomers — Last September The Chad & Cheese added a program called Death Match to the TAtech stage in New Orleans during the North American Summit.

Start-ups Canvas, Uncommon, AllyO and Talkpush took to the stage for LIVE competition with only one to emerge as GRAND CHAMPION! Canvas won the day!

Needless to say it was a smashing hit… The Bloody Marys, mimosas and beer didn’t hurt either… Okay enough background…

On to EUROPE!!!

Death Match is scheduled during TAtech Europe in Lisbon – May 9th and 10th 2019… The Chad & Cheese have handpicked two out of the four contestants.

1) Candidate ID purveyor of Talent Pipeline automation software and 2) TNG — you know the company bringing you that creepy interviewing robot named Tengai — both companies have accepted The Chad & Cheese Death Match challenge…

But here’s the thing.. They did it via video acceptance…

TNG started the acceptance brilliance / madness by creating a video that showcased Tengai — their unbiased robot — accepting the challenge by providing background, jokes and a dressing down of The Chad & Cheese… Hilarious yes, but good strategy, well we shall see…

Candidate ID, not to be outdone by a generation 1 terminator, focused on creating a message around their Scottish roots. No they didn’t lift the Dinnie stones, which would have been impressive, bit rather it’s a cinematic piece which rallies the Candidate ID troops for war against The Chad & Cheese and a robot with instant outfit change abilities.

You can check out the acceptance video brilliance on ChadCheese.com – just click on podcasts and then DEATH MATCH on the right rail. All Death Match New Orleans sessions are available on ChadCheese.com or where ever you listen to podcasts.

Candidate ID and Tengai are only two out of the four hand-picked start-ups who will be competing in Lisbon this May at TAtech. Stay-tuned for more contestant updates and if you believe you have what it takes reach out to us on ChadCheese.com. It’s doubtful you do, but why the hell not?
