More about Chad and Cheese

Bringing to the people over 40 years of combined experience Chad and Cheese bring a unique perspective and brash flavor to the recruitment industry.

Chad Sowash, an Army Infantry Drill Sergeant, cut his teeth in online recruiting in ’98 with Online Career Center before it was launched in ’99 as Monster.com. He helped build DirectEmployers from the ground up, steered RecruitMilitary toward revenue as CXO, and built Randstad’s very first military veteran hiring program. Today you can find him speaking at events, podcasting or just working his ass off as a Principal Partner at Catch 22 Consulting.

The yin to Chad’s podcasting yang – get it? – is Joel Cheesman another recruiting industry tech geek from the late 90’s where he worked at eSpan one of the very first job boards in the world, JobOptions, CareerBoard, Jobing, Recruiting.com and did partnership shit at EmployeescreenIQ. But you probably know him from his days as Cheezhead. Joel likes to tinker which means he's also started a variety of businesses, including his latest venture an employer review aggregator and brand early warning system called Ratedly.
