Good morning. It’s Wednesday August 14, 2019 and this is your first early morning Jobs briefing!

In today’s Jobs news: PointsBet is looking for a Chief Operating Officer in Denver; A+E needs a Manager, Recruiter in NYC,  and Comcast Advertising hired Joel Armijo as SVP and Chief Financial Officer. 


Have you heard? Cynopsis has partnered with STUCK – a podcast that helps people get unSTUCK from common workplace dilemmas in the entertainment and media industries. STUCK is co-hosted by Damian Bazadona (President and Founder of Situation) and Rachelle Pereira (Co-Founder of EQUALibrium Group), who address questions from their listeners and provides answers – fast, fresh and often funny – based on their years of experience. Cynopsis is excited to be the official partner for Season 3, where we’re putting a special spotlight on millennials and Gen Z.
 
Cynopsis’ Editorial Director, Lynn Leahey, had a few Qs for Damian and Rachelle about the podcast –   Spoiler alert: you may get hooked! Want to get involved? Submit your stickiest workplace conundrums here, and then stay tuned for Season 3 of STUCK, coming to headphones near you this September.
 
Cynopsis’ Editorial Director, Lynn Leahey, had a few Qs for Damian and Rachelle about the podcast

What was your inspiration for STUCK? 

RP: Damian and I love debating management and leadership topics. We wanted to do something creative together and this was a natural extension.
 
DB: To help people. I truly enjoy using whatever knowledge or insight I have captured over the years to help folks who ultimately just need a fresh perspective on the inevitable workplace dilemmas we all experience. A big part of my day is working in large group environments, so I’ve seen a lot.

How is it different from other business-focused podcasts?
RP: I am a huge podcast listener and there are loads of well-produced and thoroughly researched stuff out there. I like that our podcast is instinctual, where we don’t have time to look up the “right answer.” And I like when listeners say that they play along and see if their answers match ours. 
DB: I think people crave advice that’s from the heart and a bit less calculating. There are plenty of places to get advice on workplace problems, but I hope our format of the “five-minute time limit” brings a personal, authentic, human response to the equation. Plus, we have Rachelle – she’s super smart and has a gigantic book of advice sewed into her brain. “Rachelle, what does the book say to do here?” She’s faster and funnier than Alexa. Just sayin’.
 
Stay tuned for part two in Sunday’s jobs edition…
