Intro: Hide your kids, lock the doors, you're listening to HR's most

dangerous podcast. Chad Sowash and Joel Cheesman are here to punch the recruiting industry right where it hurts complete with breaking news, brash opinion and loads of snark. Buckle up boys and girls, it's time for the Chad and Cheese Podcast.

Joel: Oh, tight turn.

Chad: Round about.

Joel: All right, welcome to the hungover Sweden road trip edition of the Chad and Cheese podcast, HR's most dangerous.

Chad: Thanks to my wife Julie for chaffering us. Joel and I are in the backseat of a VW Polo.

Joel: I really wish Julie would've worn the black top hat that I got her for the chauffer gig. She did wear the black gloves, though, so I'm okay with that.

Chad: Okay, we should stop calling her Jeeves, that's really creepy. That's really fucking ...

Joel: If somebody farts in this car, we're stopping the podcast.

Chad: We're stopping the podcast.

Joel: That's all I'm saying. Yeah, so in this week's show, we're going to be talking about Hire by Google going limp, Entelo and Convey IQ getting married.

Chad: Getting jiggy.

Joel: And signs of meltdown at Ally O. Stick around, we'll be right back after this word from our sponsor.

Chad: And we're back.

Joel: And we're back. We're on the road in Sweden, north of Torekov or Gurkenschkerken, Vertiferken.

Chad: Last night, that was hilarious. We had dinner with a bunch of Swedes, go figure. We are in Sweden and they, again, very mad that thinking the Swedish chef

is Swedish, because the Swedish chef is apparently Danish.

Joel: Danish.

Chad: Yes.

Joel: Which makes no sense and their argument is weak.

Chad: Very weak.

Joel: So, I'm not buying it.

Chad: I'm not buying it either. They should like the Swedish chef.

Joel: They do, they do, they do. Yeah, Swedes are a fun group. The robot does not eat in case anyone was interested. It does not eat food, it just exists to destroy us one day.

Chad: But I think they've given it some new looks, because I think it was giving you the side eye yesterday.

Joel: Yeah, so we had meetings all day and they had the robot at the front of the table and it just stares at ... I think it looks directly at everyone no matter what angle you look at it.

Chad: I don't think so, I think it was giving you the side eye.

Joel: It was looking at me, yeah. It haunts my dreams every night. Let's get to some shout outs.

Chad: Shout outs.

Joel: Obviously Tin Guy in the group, Jalen CEO Charlotte marketing exec. We're making friends and building bridges from America to Sweden if you will.

Chad: As a matter of fact, we've also heard that the South of Sweden is for sale, so if we can just tell Trump to get off of Greenland possibly, we can have a piece of Sweden.

Joel: Yeah, much better real estate here in Sweden than Greenland, maybe less natural resources, but who knows? Who knows?

Chad: Shoutout to my boy, Roy Etnyer from Monster. He's originally from Columbus, Indiana, came home to see moms, said hey would you like to play a round of golf? Went and played a round of golf and he unloaded a bunch of Monster golf swag, which was fucking awesome. Great job, Roy.

Joel: Yeah, this is where I note the vice president Mike Pence also a brother, a son of Columbus.

Chad: Just go ahead and let's smother that one as Julie flips you off.

Joel: I'm going to give a shout out to Holland Dombeck, our buddy at Delta.

Chad: Yeah, Holland.

Joel: She heard our story about Google Events, Hire Events, Indeed Hire Events.

Chad: Yeah, Indeed.

Joel: Sorry, it's a little hot in here. Can you turn the air on a little bit, Julie? Thanks. Anyway, she had some numbers for us. I don't know if you have those handy or not, but it looks like about $2,000 for these hire events, so in case you didn't know, there are no billboards in Sweden. All the billboards are trucks that farmers have rolled in to make a little extra money, but I did hear that they have to have wheels. They can't be stationary.

Chad: Oh, really?

Joel: Yes. And all the cows here look really happy.

Chad: Anyway, shoutout to Holland for giving us some insights on that. She said they were working well for her.

Joel: Yeah, she spoke positively about them. I think we both agree that price will go up on those as they continue to roll them out. It's still in beta.

Chad: Oh yeah.

Joel: I had the opinion that Indeed ... everybody wants to be a platform and Indeed is no different, so if Indeed is also your event, job fair whatever you want to call it provider, that's just another reason to stick around with Indeed, similar to Apple launching music or other services that just add features to make sure you stay on the platform.
