- iCIMS is taking no prisoners, making another acquisition,

- OutMatch says, "Two can play that game."

Chad (30s):

Chad (1m 35s):

So Joel, the why the after hours recording?

Joel (1m 38s):

Oh, sleep deprived and halfway to drunk, which is why the opening sucks so bad. So my three-year-old had a tonsillectomy yesterday, which was fun. So had to take care of him, had to restock the ice cream, you know, cuddles and cartoons. And so we're opting for the happy hour edition of the show, which I'm not hating on, cause we get to drink beer and talk shop, which is yeah.

Chad (2m 6s):

So with that being said, what are you guys looking to do for Thanksgiving? Because we're all supposed to be responsible, respectful, all that other fun stuff. What are you guys looking to do for Turkey day?

Joel (2m 18s):

Yeah. It's just the family. I'm lobbying for beef Wellington. We'll see. We'll see if I win that one or not. It's probably going to be Turkey breasts and stuffing, but you know, a boy can dream. Beef Wellingtons are my favorite.

Chad (2m 35s):

Well, I got to say a big SHOUT OUT to Julie and her team, they did a Thanksgiving alternative for her whole team that works together. It was a friend, it was a Friendsgiving and what they did was pretty awesome. So Julie's obviously the boss. So what she did was she bought food for everybody. It was all sent out to everyone. We all got on a Microsoft Team meeting. We cooked it together. Everybody was in their kitchens. After that, we played it. It showed it the beautiful plates. And then we all sat in our dining rooms and we ate together, we talked and we had a Thanksgiving, but just virtual.

Chad (3m 21s):

It was really fucking cool. I got to give a big applause to her and her team for actually coming up with something like that. Socially distant, smart, but yet to getether.

Joel (3m 33s):

So you had a Thankszooming, essentially. You need to trademark that, buy the domain, something, very nice. Well, let's get to SHOUT OUT. Shall we?

Chad (3m 42s):

Yes. Come on, man.

Joel (3m 44s):

I'll start with Craig Fisher, friend of the show, Craig Fisher our final event in person of 2019. Greg Fisher is now CEO of KNACK. That's K N A C k.io. I don't think it's Nackio, although I have a knack for adding the IO on the end. See what I did there. It's an engineering kind of job board thing is the best I can explain it. I'm sure. We'll see Craig at some point and get the dealio, but that's kind of a big deal, CEO.

Chad (4m 11s):

Kind of a big deal, start up. Yeah!

Joel (4m 12s):

Yeah. It's an also Shally Steckerl. I'll throw in a couple of old friends of the show.

Chad (4m 17s):

Dude where's he been? Jesus.

Joel (4m 19s):

So yeah, I know, right? He's a full-time employee at Newton talent RPO solution and they've joined forces to create power sourcing.com has taken his educational chops over to Newton to educate the folks out there that want sourcing information. But two friends of the show that have landed in alternate universes and SHOUT OUTs to both of those boys.

Chad (4m 44s):

Well Shally, hopefully after that long nap, you're ready for a new adventure. My friend, SHOUT OUT to Mike.

Joel (4m 52s):

That's not nice. Shally napping. Why is everyone napping for you? Are you like never sleeping?

Chad (5m 3s):

I never sleep Cheeseman.

Joel (5m 4s):

Oh, I know.

Chad (5m 6s):

SHOUT OUT to Mike Weston for creating the Dr. Evil mini Me Hard Knock Life video using Ethan Bloomfield's face on both Dr. Evil and mini me Mike Whiston has nothing better to do, but I'm telling you right now, it was so fucking hilarious. I've already watched it like a dozen times.

Joel (5m 24s):

Do that face replace app or whatever it's called. That thing has got to go. Joe Lockwood did one. It's just like, come on man. It's yeah, I got nothing. But whoever invented that is evil. Evil, evil, evil.

Chad (5m 38s):

Evil genius.

Joel (5m 40s):

Okay. SHOUT OUT to Pfizer and Moderna, I don't know if you've heard this, but they're a, they're saving the world.

Chad (5m 46s):

Give me the shot!

Joel (5m 46s):

... with capitalism. 95% effective, coming to an arm near you, soon. 2021 if we're lucky vaccine time, baby, let's get this gets to get the show back on the road.

Chad (5m 59s):

Give me the shot motherfuckers. Again, another SHOUT OUT to Nick Livingston, the CEO of hone it. He gets a double SHOUT OUT for those crazy addictive Bourbon balls. So Julie doesn't it even like bourbon and she had two, I had to hide them. Come on, man. If anybody's out there, they're looking for holiday gift ideas. We're not getting commission guys or referral bonuses or anything like that. This is just a core

Joel (6m 25s):

Or begging for more balls.

Chad (6m 27s):

We'd like chocolate salty balls. What we're looking for, go to bootlegbourbonballs.com. They are amazing. Amazing. Thanks Nick.

Joel (6m 42s):

Thanks Nick. That was good. Yeah. My wife has a chocolate hound in, but she hates bourbon. So it's the about the only chocolate treat that I've had in a while. And you know, my midsection needs more chocolate shout out to Jobboard Doctor cause I'm just sick of Steven Rothberg SHOUT OUs. He had a nice article called Tale of Two Job Boards this week where he, I don't know, he took a Dice and Upwork's recent earnings calls and talked about how one really sucks ass.

Chad (7m 9s):


Joel (7m 10s):

And Art Zeal we're still waiting for you to come on the show and Upwork gig economy, rock and rockin' the shit out of a its stock price and value. So Tale of Two Job Boards, if you haven't checked it out, go, go read that and learn something, kids.

Chad (7m 23s):

Remember when Art was at a TA tech and we like stood up and said, Hey, dude, we want to interview you. And he ran. I mean, he, it was almost like he literally, okay, so maybe it was like a, it was a power walk. Let's just say that. Didn't see the guy again.

Joel (7m 37s):

Art! More like Dart, you know what I'm saying?

Chad (7m 40s):

SHOUT OUT to Germany. So Germans put off COVID criminals Joel, and it's hilarious! Germany calls on it's young to be the COVID heroes of 2020, by staying on their sofa. This is an awesome and a smart commercial. It has this old man, and they're actually looking back to 2020 when he was 22 in college and what he did for the country, which was nothing sitting on his couch, eating pizza. It is hilarious video, but it, it is something that we need to really focus on. Yes, it is a bit staying inside, but guess what?
