Interviewing Robot Upgrade
It was just a joke to some when it burst onto the recruitment landscape years ago, but Tengai, the robot recruiter born in Sweden is still here, suckers. And now it speaks English, so the boys thought it was worth a chat about what's going on with the company, the tech, and that craziness that is Swedes eating rotten fish. Yuck! Virus-free, fluent in English and a little less creep than last year, Tengai isn't going anywhere. They don't care about your shade. Sorta like Abba's Greatest Hits.
This episode supported and powered Sovren, the AI, parsing, and matching tech so human you'll want to take it to dinner.

CareerBuilder Horror Show
As if 2020 wasn't scary enough, Halloween is on the way, which means Cheesman's waistline is scared to death of Reese's Peanut Buttercups, but that's nothing to the horror show that is CareerBuilder.
Rumors of a massive CareerBuilder cyberattack
iCIMS gets super-cozy with Microsoft,
