Jobs in Pods is a division of TotalPicture Media. Our site was launched in March 2007. Here’s a look at the people behind our jobcasts.
Executive Producer and Senior Jobcaster
The host/producer of TotalPicture Radio, and “Senior Jobcaster,” Clayton purchased Jobs in Pods from Chris Russell in 2012. His experience in interviewing and podcasting is a great asset to the Jobs in Pods team. Peter is a recognized leader in strategy, direction, and creative management of Internet, intranet, and video production.
Founder; writer/producer/director of the first podcast focused on Career development and advocacy: TotalPicture Radio – (formerly Landed.fm) is a virtual “career empowerment service,” using on-demand Internet radio, podcasting, and the Total Picture website to help high-potential professionals succeed in their career aspirations. Every week, he records interviews with senior executives, best selling authors, change agents and leading experts in career management, human resources, recruiting, executive search, networking skills, and employment trends.
Founder & Advisor
“Chris is a pioneer who always pushes the envelope, bringing new technology and methods to competitive recruiting practice.” – John Sumser
“Mr. Podcast” – Joel Cheesman
Mr. Russell is a ten year veteran of the online job board industry. In 1999 he founded the regional job board network under the name AllCountyJobs.com LLC which he still manages today. He has been an instrumental part of the podcasting community for more than 3 years.
The idea for Jobs in Pods stems from his experience in blogging and podcasting. He quickly recognized that these new media tools represented the future of online recruiting and publicity. With a belief that “Recruiting is marketing“, Chris decided to bring these web 2.0 technologies into recruitment advertising by combining a blog with jobs and podcasts.
The result is a truly unique and memorable way for a company to advertise their jobs and promote their employer brand using this ‘internet radio on demand‘ concept. It is the only such service of its kind.
As the iPod generation of job seekers graduate into the job market, companies will need to communicate with them much differently than they did previous generations. The young, tech savvy, on demand worker of today expects different things from his/her employer. So they need to be spoken to in ways they can relate to. They are comfortable with podcasting and blogs.
They are ready for recruiting with Jobs in Pods.
Chris, a serial entrepreneur is currently launching an new start-up, CareerCloud. His is the founder of Jobboarders, a social network for job board professionals. He has been named to the 2007 40 Under 40 Awards by the Fairfield County Business Journal. In 2006 he was also awarded the HR Vendor of the Year Award by the Southern Connecticut chapter of SHRM.
