Ep 494: Confidence and Resilience
Whatever part of the industry you are in, you will be facing uncertain times as we start to move through 2023. On top of the obvious economic factors, Talent Acquisition is heading into a period of dramatic reinvention right in the middle of a trend of TA layoffs, a conundrum at a time of continuing talent shortages and candidate-driven markets. Whether you are looking for a new role, reinventing your existing role, or getting promoted, confidence is critical. It's also something that we don't talk about enough, particularly when it comes to building more of it and dealing with imposter syndrome. My guest this week is Jess Jones, an influencer, content creator, and DE&I talent lead. Jess recently wrote a book about building confidence called "Own It". Her experience in TA gives her a unique perspective on how we talk (or rather don't talk) about confidence and resilience in our industry, and she has some great advice to share. In the interview, we discuss: Confidence in the workplace Tackling imposter syndrome "Owning it" Empowering people to be more confident The snakes and ladders of work in 2023 The five-second rule Does social media make things more complicated? The myth of perfection and the importance of being vulnerable Curiosity Showing up and leading by example AI & TA Internal mobility Using creators and influences to target specific pools of talent Listen to this podcast on Apple Podcasts.

Can Entelo Pull It Off?
This week, the boys are all over the place. It's like Pulp Fiction were a podcast episode. CareerBuilder's all-white leadership team embraces its inner DEI, Who'd Ya' Rather with Dalia and Cleary. Entelo is turning into those deadly fungi from HBO's 'The Last of Us,' eating Silkroad Technologies from the inside out. Big fast-food chains are taking on California while speeding up that whole 'fewer employees / more robots' thing. Returnships are a new word we're all going to have to get used to and ARK's Cathie Wood believes Amazon could have more robots than employees by 2030. Is your head spinning just reading all that? Just wait till you have a listen.

Partner or Customer?
Google’s employer brand leads us to believe they have their house in order. We try to rationalize how they messed up the layoff process last week.  Just to make us all feel better, we found the world’s worst recruitment process. Be thankful your employer doesn't use polygraphs.  Recruiting Tip The easiest and cheapest way to recruit; boomerang employees. Recruiting Insights Textio raises concern over ChatGPT, legit or scared what it means to their their business. The unintended consequence of treating hiring managers as customers and not as a business partner.  Much can be said in a 6 page resume. Plan to be there all afternoon, they will talk the whole time.  If you can concisely describe your work history on a single page, is this not the ultimate demonstration of communication?

Ep 493: The Growing Value Of TA Operations
Talent Acquisition is continuing to grow in complexity. Technology is becoming more disruptive, recruiting methodologies are getting more sophisticated, and data and analytics are becoming more important. It's not surprising then that the skillset of TA teams is diversifying, and the role of TA Operations is becoming more developed. So how can TA leaders demonstrate the value of TA Ops, and how can it inform hiring strategies My guest this week is Mark Jenkins, Talent Acquisition Operations Manager at Product Madness. Mark's role involves improving recruiting and hiring efficiency through process improvements, streamlined funnels, and digital transformation. He has lots of insights and advice to share about the growing value of TA Ops. In the interview, we discuss: The bottom line impact of TA Ops Improving retention and diversity Unlocking the full potential of recruiting technology Automation and the importance of process reinvention How to drive value via continuous improvement Calculating the ROI of TA Ops Storytelling with data The role TA Ops can play in shaping hiring strategies The future of TA Ops Listen to this podcast on Apple Podcasts.

Clovers Buys, Walmart Spins and TikTok Bans
Agree to disagree. Maybe that should be the title of this week's show, because there's a lot of disagreement this week. Aside from seeing eye-to-eye that the recent acquisition of TalVista by makes sense, a game of Who'd Ya' Rather between Skillit and Grazzy goes sideways. So does whether or not TikTok is on its way to becoming illegal to use in the U.S. And don't even get us started on minimum wage increases at Walmart. At least we end the week in agreement that interviewing 3D avatars is both cool and creepy as well. And you thought Tengai the Recruiting Robot haunting your dreams for the last couple of years was scary! You ain't seen nothing yet.

Mind the Gap
With our beloved Serge getting hit with the 'Vid' , Allie Knull joins as CoHost with Shelley, listen who gets the last word now! It’s official RecFest will be in Nashville, TN on Sept 13 & 14 Allie & Shelley share their favourite interview questions.  Tip of the Week: Never underestimate the emotional toll that being laid off brings. For those leaving and those left behind.  Recruiting Insights This Week Canadian company, Media Profile sets the pace for best perk ever. A change of scenery and $3K to work from anywhere for a month, now that’s creative thinking On-boarding or pre-boarding ideas that don't cost anything. Unlimited vacation may sound good but requesting the time off, in reality, is falling flat - on either side of the border. Gen Z, “If you don't understand why I traveled Europe for 5 months, then I don't want to work for you”. How dare we question a gap on your resume.

Beamery, Lattice, and Netflix Dumpster Fires
The boys are back, baby! The holidays are over, Chad's stateside again and predictions are in the can. That means we're back to business-as-usual, which means we're talkin' news out of Indeed, Netflix, ChatGPT, Deel and even CareerBuilder (kinda). You want more?

Dear HR, Let's Break Up?
As our credit card statements arrive this week, we have to ask, “Was all the Christmas spending worth it?” Or did you have a blue Monday type of week? A great new tool if you are thinking to feature your hiring managers in recruitment videos, try putting the script into Https:// for a free teleprompter Speaking of video, the industry saw the merger of video interviewing with the guardrails of structured unbiased interview guides, and Recruiting Insights The headline grabbing news of more layoffs, yet 40% of tech workers land elsewhere within a month of starting to apply. Chief Talent Officer, the article in got most of it right; the CTO has to be a recruitment expert not an HR expert. The top 15 jobs for 2023 in Canada was a list of old favorites. Were all the Data Scientists found or do we call them something else now?   Creative liberties when coming up with job titles has unintended consequences.

Beauty Bias
Investment advice from Serge on ZipRecruiter stock and a tip on who is heading to IPO.  868M568F+C9 - Decoding the message from our friend Jamie Leonard about RecFest, we will need to bring him on to the show and confirm this. Could the worlds largest recruitment conference be coming to North America? ChatGPT is just over 30 days on the market and MicroSoft pays $10B to breath life into Bing. You should be using this for all your job ads Recruitment Insights Being good looking does not get you very far on Zoom. Charm and charisma need to be experienced in person to give someone the advantage. Finally! The sandwich maker and hair stylist can work where they get paid the best, the US does away with noncompete agreements.  No crystal ball needed for this prediction; GenZ has no interest in blue collar work. Good luck finding an electrician in the year 2043, unless we all live on Mars by then. Proud to partner with our friends at Rectxt check them out at
