Blast from the past! This article was first published five years ago by Chris Russell, the founder of JobsinPods, when our jobcasts exceeded 800,000 downloads. With the relaunch of JobsinPods.com in November, 2016, we hope to exceed that 2011 number in 2017!
Here’s what Chris wrote…
That is what we believed would happen when we launched this jobcast service 4 years ago in the online recruiting world. And that is what happened. Listeners came in droves and our clients reaped the benefits of humanizing their companies. One podcast (aka jobcast) at a time.
Today we are proud to announce that Jobs in Pods has produced almost 200 jobcasts that have now been listened to almost 800,000 times. Thats an average of 200,000 downloads each year. Over 283,000 of that number come directly from our Youtube channel located at youtube.com/jobsinpods.
The goal of each jobcast we produce is to humanize your company by letting your employees speak for themselves. Whats it like to work there? Whats the best part about your job? Why should a potential candidate apply? These are the kinds of questions we ask. These are the kinds of answers job seekers want (and frankly deserve to hear).
Perhaps the most surprising thing about Jobs in Pods is how quickly it was adopted by the Fortune 500 companies. Firms like GE, IBM, Walgreen, McDonald’s, Nestle were among the first to use our service. Tech giant Intel has been our most prolific client. They have done more than 20 jobcasts and generated over 100,000 downloads of their audio. Much of this engagement has been driven by a dedicated podcast page setup internally on their career portal. They have been ecstatic about the results by getting hires, showcasing their employees and building their employment brand.
As we move forward into the recruitosphere we encourage your firm to pick up the jobcast momentum and try a jobcast or two. Think of them as your own career radio show on demand. Lets Jobs in Pods make you a star and bring your jobs to life.
