WHO THE HELL ARE THESE GUYS?
Chad & Cheese are the hosts of HR’s Most Dangerous Podcast and the snarkiest of industry analysts
WHAT THE HELL DO THEY KNOW?
Bringing more than 40 years of combined experience to the podcast industry, Chad & Cheese add a unique perspective and brash flavor to the generally bland stew of hum-drum “yes-yes” and ass-kiss rhetoric that you normally get from people in recruitment.
Chad & Cheese is explicit. Meaning they say exactly what’s on their minds. And without a filter.
In short, Chad & Cheese are ultra plugged in and know their shit. Now, you can, too.
Chad Sowash, a former Army Infantry drill sergeant, cut his teeth in online recruitment in ’98 with an outfit called Online Career Center before it launched in ’99 as Monster.com. He went on to build DirectEmployers from the ground up, steer RecruitMilitary toward revenue as CXO and build RandStad’s first military veteran hiring program. Today, you can find him speaking at events, podcasting or just working his ass off as principal partner at Catch 22 Consulting.
The yin to Chad’s yang—get it?—is Joel Cheesman, another recruiting industry tech geek from the late ‘90s, when he worked at eSpan, one of the world’s first job boards, as well as JobOptions, CareerBoard, Jobing and Recruiting.com. He also did partnership shit at EmployeescreenIQ. But you probably know him from his days as Cheezhead. Joel likes to tinker, which means he’s started a variety of businesses, including his latest venture: an employer-review aggregator called Ratedly.
