2:00 - The whole crew was very into the 2020 Summer Olympics, even though they’re confused on why it’s called 2020 and not 2021. KD is watching the NBC primetime coverage

4:30 - KD wonders why the divers take showers after every dive. JLee tells him that it’s to keep their muscles warm since the pool is so cold. The more you know!

7:00 - Shout out to Katie Ledecky who’s from JLee’s home area! What a beast.

9:30 - JLee is teaching her children about the Olympics and how they should root for everyone to do well and be happy for all the winners. Great sports life lessons!

11:00 - The majority of the US Olympic team are women. This is the third straight Olympics where women outnumber men for Team USA.

12:15 - JLee asks Tim and KD what the weirdest thing they’ve seen to help with hiring. She saw a Wendy’s that was offering a free meal to do an interview for a job. KD says that the lack of change by some companies has been the oddest thing to him.

15:45 - JLee shouts out Chipotle for hopping on TikTok to ramp up hiring.

17:20 - Tim talks about how Chipotle got an influencer to come in and make a video about her past employment there. He thinks this is a really smart recruitment marketing tactic.

19:30 - JLee talks about an influencer Marriott uses that makes content about being a foster mom of teenage girls.

22:30 - Tim praises TikTok Resumes for being innovative unlike many other social platforms but is upset that their job description language is the same traditional, boring descriptions from the past.

27:00 - Tim thinks that smaller brands can have more impact using TikTok for hiring since the bigger brands have more risk involved.

31:30 - JLee asks the crew what they would say if their kids asked if they should do a TIkTok resume. Tim says that if a brand is on TikTok resumes, they should know what they’re getting themselves into.
