BrassRing Acquired, LinkedIn vs. Degreed, RippleMatch, Talent.com IPO?

April 23rd, 2021

How’s that saying go? Empires don’t die with a bang, they go out with a whimper. Or something like that. If you’re thinking the acquisition of Brassring, after it was snatched up by IBM a decade ago with a price tag just north of a billion dollars, is kind of like that whole whimper thing, you’re not alone. And good luck recognizing the company who wrote the check this time ’round. If you’re more into up-and-comers, however, this week’s got that too, with university employment solution RippleMatch getting big money to take on Handshake and the other companies hoping to own the college recruitment space. Want established players? Of course this show discusses the latest LinkedIn news. With their latest initiative, newly minted unicorn Degreed might be a little nervous. The whole show is bookended with McDonald’s latest strategy to combat candidate ghosting. As usual, this bit of aural gold is powered by Sovren, JobAdx and Jobvite.
