LinkedIn Job Boards Like It's 1999


Stick around in this industry long enough and you may see something like a mobile stock trading app called Robinhood acquire a staffing firm. Yeah, that really happened. Hard to top that news, but...

  • SmartRecruiters getting smarter,

  • Charter kicks wages in the ass

  • LinkedIn suffering an identity crisis

  • WeWork? Nope, I'm gonna WorkChew!

Joel (1m 39s):

Oh, shots are the theme of this week. Me doing whiskey shots and your wife getting shots.


Chad (1m 45s):

That's right, baby. Yeah. Julie got on a wait list and here in Indiana, this is so freaky. All the States have like their own way of doing this shot thing. And then it almost seems like the counties are doing their own things as well. I mean, it doesn't seem like it was as easy for you to get shots. I was lucky enough, almost like I had a cheat code where I got in the next day. As soon as it hit, you know, hit the age, it was like, boom, I got in the next day, Julie got on a wait list because this state will not waste any, any of the vaccine. So if somebody cancels, they have a list of people to call and they call and say, can you be here in 30 minutes?


Chad (2m 28s):

She was like, yes. And she was, she ran up the steps. She was glowing and she was off.


Joel (2m 36s):

So I was, I've been on that same list for months. They haven't called me yet, but I'm scheduled next Friday to get my first shot here locally, which is fine. So it's amusing. When you get added to the wait list, they give you two phone numbers, or at least this was my case. They gave you two numbers to make sure we're in your contact list. Ah, so when they called,


Chad (2m 60s):

Yes.


Joel (3m 1s):

You know, whatever showed up or so, so I'm wondering if Julie mentioned putting those in her phone with the name of who was calling and when she saw that call, come in, obviously got excited.


Chad (3m 12s):

She answered any call. And that was, that was her, that was it. It was like, I don't know where it's going to come from. I don't care. I'm just going to answer any call. And I'm actually getting my second shot next Friday. You'll be heading into the opportunities of getting the fuck out of the house. And I will be in my second phase of fuck yeah!


Joel (3m 31s):

I know you're taking a week off. Is that part of the vaccine love tour? That's kind of, (music),


Chad (3m 38s):

Oh dude, we are on Airbnb. We've got all these different trips that are planned, that week is in April where I am actually marrying a couple of my friends in Charleston!


Joel (3m 53s):

Yeah, I forgot you have that distinction now. You're going to be yeah.


Chad (3m 57s):

Clergy.


Joel (3m 58s):

Clergy. That's nice. That's nice. Yeah, we won't mention the name of the company, but both of us got an email today saying, Hey, we're looking at doing an analyst day. We're looking at fall of this year. We're doing a quick survey of whether you'd be up for face to face or you want the virtual thing. And I think both of us answer within two minutes saying like, we're good for face to face. Yeah. We're good for a trip somewhere.


Chad (4m 24s):

Let's do this.


Joel (4m 25s):

We'll do that thing. Yeah. We will be vaccinated and ready to go. So St. Patrick's Day was yesterday. Did you do anything special besides counting calories for your summer bod to make an appearance?


Chad (4m 37s):

Yeah, usually I don't worry about that shit, but during COVID I've been extra indulgent,


Joel (4m 43s):

Extra drinking, extra drink,


Chad (4m 45s):

So therefore I've backed off a tad and, we're focused on getting fit and trim so that we can get the fuck outta here and look good.


Joel (4m 53s):

Boring.


Chad (4m 55s):

Yeah. I'll take that!


Joel (4m 57s):

Aside from a good share of my, of my Guinness here in the house. I had a cavalcade, a parade, if you will, of Irish whiskeys that I sampled and I'm a little hung over. I don't know if you can tell, but this, this is a pretty low energy podcast for the weekly for me, but I mean, it's always a great time to think about Ireland. My grandfather, Irish roots. And I just first shout out for me is I want to just name off some names of Irish listeners that are friends and, and love the show. Adam Chambers of course, Neil Dunwoody, Shane Gray, who's probably in Fiji or Bora Bora right now anyway. So who, you know, whatever Patty Doyle, who we've had pizza with, have a pizza with Patti Doyle.


Joel (5m 39s):

That's the most on Irish or Irish thing ever. Andrea Wade, Johnny Campbell, Dave Ralph, Ivan Stowjanowicz


Chad (5m 47s):

The Irish recruiter.


Joel (5m 48s):

And not a very Irish name. Yes. The Irish recruiter with the most non-Irish name ever.


Chad (5m 52s):

Cause he's from Croatia! That's why.


Joel (5m 55s):

Put a Mc in front of it. And it's McStojavoniwich or whatever. So yeah, love the Irish. We're all a little Irish on St. Patrick's Day. Shout out to our, our Irish fans.


Chad (6m 6s):
