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 yeah. Recording today from the Big D, that's Dallas in case you didn't know. It's a super hydrated episode of the Chad and Cheese Podcast, HR's most dangerous. I'm your co-host Joel Cheesman.
Chad: And I'm Chad Sowash.
Joel: On this week's show, Neuvoo embraces its inner sexual chocolate. That's boy's got talent.
Joel: Some people will get that. Chipotle knows when employees have been over-served, and Craigslist finally realizes it's 2019. Grab a cup of Joe and get caffeinated. We'll be right back after we pay a few bills.
Chad: It's new mark time.
JobAdX: Nope. Nah. Not for me. All these jobs look the same. Oh, next. This is what perfectly qualified candidates are thinking as they scroll past your jobs. Just half-heartedly skimming job descriptions that aren't standing out to them. Face it, we live in a world that is all about content, content, content. So why do we expect job seekers to react differently while reading paragraphs and bullets and templated job descriptions? Stand out in a feed full of boring job ads with a dynamic, enticing video that showcases your company culture, people, and benefits with JobAdX. Instead of hoping that job seekers will stumble upon your employment branding video, JobAdX seamlessly displays it in the job description while they're searching, building a connection, and reducing candidate drop off. You're spending thousands of dollars on beautiful, informative employment branding videos that just sit on a YouTube channel begging to be discovered. Why not feature them across our network of over 150 job sites to proactively compel top talent to join your team. Help candidates see themselves in your role my emails email@example.com.

Joel: And we're back.
Chad: And we're back. Okay, so as we sit here in this posh Renaissance Hotel-
Joel: Lovely weather yesterday when we got here in Dallas. Very lovely. Little cooler today.
Chad: It is a little cooler. Still much nicer than it is back in home land of Indiana.
Joel: We've kind of tripped out this year. This is our final leg of the Chad and Cheese tour.
Joel: And I'm ready for a break. I don't know about you.
Chad: I'm ready for a break. I'm definitely ready for a break.
Joel: It's been a busy year, for sure.
Chad: Yeah, Julie's ready for a break. Everybody's ready for a break.
Joel: I know I look about eight years older than when we started this tour, and my liver looks about 50 years older than when we first started this tour. But
god damn it, we're having fun.
Chad: We're having a great time.
Joel: Let's get to shout outs.
Chad: Shout outs. First shout out goes to, you might know her, Julie
Joel: I've heard of her, yeah.
Chad: Yeah, yeah, yeah. She's my badass wife who just served on a panel presenting at the United Nations earlier this week.
Joel: Little organization some people know.
Chad: You might have known. You might have heard of it.
Joel: Little startup.
Chad: The focus was ongoing challenges and opportunities for employers and talented job seekers with disabilities. It was the international day of people with disabilities or something like that.
Chad: And so the United Nations, they do this every year. Yeah, she had a blast. It was a good time.
Joel: Now was she lobbying for a certain thing? Was it just an FYI for the governments of the world? What was the purpose?
Chad: Listening to experts, right? Asking experts questions. So yeah. I mean, they were really focused on just trying to get as much information in short amount of time. I think they're on for an hour. It was really good.
Joel: Now she was not wearing a Chad and Cheese t-shirt.
Chad: I know.
Joel: I know there was no chance that was going to happen. But was there some conversation about, "Hey, babe-"
Joel: ... "Have you thought about-"
Joel: No. Okay.
Chad: The whole focus was her new Brooks' Brothers suit.
Joel: Oh, did she go shopping?
Chad: Oh yeah. She went shopping.
Joel: And I know her hair, she had the curls rocking.
Chad: Oh, dude-
Joel: She had the whole look going.
Chad: She had the new hair, new suit. All the way through. She was rocking the entire thing.
Joel: Well, she did the Sowash family proud.
Chad: She did.
Joel: I know that was a big moment for everybody.
Chad: It was.
Joel: So that's very cool.
Chad: It was.
Joel: Well, I'm going to go to my first shout out in a totally different direction. KFC, purveyors of fine fried chicken meals, has brought back the Yule Log.
Chad: The Yule Log.
Joel: You may remember this from last year. You throw a log on the fire, you fire it up, and it smells like fried chicken all up in your house or your fire pit in the backyard. So I'm going to go from the UN to the KFC Yule Log in my shout outs.
Chad: That is pretty nice. I'm going to go... I'm going to throw this in there. I almost forgot about this. Since Julie's looking so good, Hyde Closet. Kennedy actually works at this new startup called Hyde Closet.
Joel: Is that H-I-D-E or H-Y.
Chad: H-Y-D-E. Kind of like Jekyll and Hyde. So she's working for this startup called Hyde Closet where there are so many of these female box in the mail kind of get clothes things.
Joel: Yeah, Birch Box.
Chad: This is for a dude. So trying to make me look better than wearing t-shirts and hoodies all the time, which I enjoy, don't get me wrong. Yeah, so Hyde Closet is going to be fashioning me. Kennedy is actually doing it because she's one of the fashion people.
Joel: Is she your fashion consultant through this company?
Chad: I'm going to get a box so that when we're doing the Chad and
Cheese holiday part, I'm going to be decked out in Hyde Closet stuff.
Joel: Oh, damn.
Joel: Do you think she can help me, or am I a lost cause at this point?
Chad: Yeah, we might be able to have that conversation.
