Build Your Talent Network with TalentCircles

talentcircles

There’s no doubt that finding top talent isn’t easy. Especially when 40 percent of employers around the world have difficulty finding talent to fill their positions, recruiting the high-quality candidates can be challenging.

With TalentCircles, the stress of finding the best talent is eliminated. TalentCircles is a cloud-based platform that allows employers to build, brand, and manage their very own talent network. This platform also helps employers reduce talent acquisition costs and interact with candidates more often.

How does TalentCircles work?

TalentCircles allows employers to create their own talent community by asking job seekers to join their TalentCircles network. This is done by adding a TalentCircles button to their career page encouraging job seekers to join.

After a job seeker joins, he or she can create a profile allowing them to integrate information from their LinkedIn, Facebook, and Google+ profiles. This makes it fast and easy for candidates to share their experience with employers and for recruiters to access their information.

TalentCircles also allows employers to perform live video interviews, share documents, and compare candidate performance. It also integrates with an employer’s current applicant tracking system (ATS), therefore making it easy to keep track of candidate profiles and applications.

For recruiters. TalentCircles makes recruiting and connecting with job seekers much more effective. This platform seamlessly combines social media within recruiting, making it faster and easier for recruiters to interact with candidates online.

Once a recruiter or hiring manager views a job seeker’s profiles, they can send a “welcome” video to the candidate. This feature allows recruiters to make more personal connections with candidates online and engage them throughout the entire hiring process.

In addition to performing video interviews, TalentCircles enables recruiters to engage job seekers in webinars and group interviews. This helps employers create a transparent hiring process.

For candidates. Job seekers are able to build a profile through TalentCircles and join “Circles,” which are communities created by employers. Once a candidate joins the TalentCircles community, they can join groups relevant to their interests. This allows job seekers to share documents, set up meetings with employers, discover job postings, and answer employer questionnaires.

Pros of TalentCircles:

  • Platform is clean and easy to navigate.
  • Integrates iCal, which makes it easy to schedule interviews with candidates.
  • Video interviewing and webinar capabilities.
  • Easy file sharing.

Cons of TalentCircles:

  • Subscription-based service.
