    The Power of Impact: The Lost Interviews #3

    I love talking about employer branding with people who aren't IN employer brand exclusively. That's why chatting with Jill was such a hoot. She has perspective and experience to burn, and it shows in this amazing chat.

    Talking At The Audience: The Lost Interviews #2

    Talking At The Audience: The Lost Interviews #2

    Fun fact: We recorded the first version of this interview more than a year ago, but it didn't record properly (there were tears). So Lindsay, being magnanimous and generous as always, let me take a second shot at it. Which is great, because she's seen some stuff and always brings such a great perspective to branding and recruitment marketing.
    You can find Lindsay on LinkedIn here: https://www.linkedin.com/in/lindsay-parks/

    A More Efficient Trainwreck: The Lost Interviews

    Katrina Kibben is the reigning champion of all things job postings. There's no need to call a vote. There will be no recount. If you had any doubt, you have only to listen to this interview where they pinpoint any number of instances of "recruiting insanity" that most of us take as gospel.
    Katrina can be found on LinkedIn at https://www.linkedin.com/in/katrinakibben/, or through their company Three Ears Media https://www.threeearsmedia.com/.

    Resume help

    Looking for a job? Yeah, I hear you. It is the WORST! But you can take a bunch of lessons from employer branding to create a resume that isn't just "good," but helps you stand out and get the job you want.

    The View

    The View

    The future of employer branding (or maybe the maturation of it) lays in how well it is integrated into the corporate brand. The more your brand looks like a single idea seen through multiple lenses, the more each aspect can support the others. And there are few better examples of that than at Delta, where Holland McCue has pushed to create a seamless sense of brand, even when things are deeply chaotic and the future is uncertain.
    Here's my interview with Holland.

Clever podcast with depth.

James, this podcast is brilliant. You say exactly what’s on my mind, sometimes before I even know it’s what I’m thinking. Thanks for keeping it real.

Request for your thoughts!

I’d love to hear your thoughts about the importance employer Branding has for contingent workforce.

MGoMom ,

Perfect podcast

Short. To the point. And the best thing about this is that it is challenging. It’s not just entertainment, or reciting the latest hot takes from the industry, but a really thoughtful exploration of each subject. I don’t always agree with James, but that sparks reflection and I always come away with a something new.
