Enjoy this Sovren exclusive.

How's that saying go? Empires don't die with a bang, they go out with a whimper. Or something like that. If you're thinking the acquisition of Brassring, after it was snatched up by IBM a decade ago with a price tag just north of a billion dollars, is kind of like that whole whimper thing, you're not alone. And good luck recognizing the company who wrote the check this time 'round. If you're more into up-and-comers, however, this week's got that too, with university employment solution RippleMatch getting big money to take on Handshake and the other companies hoping to own the college recruitment space. Want established players? Of course this show discusses the latest LinkedIn news. With their latest initiative, newly minted unicorn Degreed might be a little nervous. The whole show is bookended with McDonald's latest strategy to combat candidate ghosting. As usual, this bit of aural gold is powered by Sovren, JobAdx and Jobvite.

Get Your Laugh On!

Who needs a laugh? 2021 does, right!!?!?! That's exactly why The Chad & Cheese invited the folks at Watercooler Comedy to come on the show for a chat.

Enjoy this laugh machine powered by Sovren AI!
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the economy added 233K jobs in January, 468K in February, and 916K in March. So, everyone who got a pink slip last year should be rejoicing and fully employed, right? Think again. Virus fears, childcare uncertainty and unawareness are keeping candidates on the sidelines. It's also sparking solutions like ZipRecruiter to reach for solutions, Degreed gained unicorn status (that makes eight in 2021) this week, Amazon beat back unionization #sad Salesforce rolled out the welcome mat for vaccinated employees ...and Dominos used robots to deliver pizzas in what looks like "a toaster with wheels" in Houston. Now bow down to your robot overlords, but hold the anchovies. As always, thank Sovren, JobAdx and Jobvite for all this cheesy goodness.
