Disclaimer• I am not affiliated with any of the tool providers, job boards, or with LinkedIn• Views are my own
The Easy Ways to Source (1): Job Boards; ATS• Full information: resumes; contact info• Structured data: parsed resumes• Faceted search:
The Dream SoftwareThe Dream Software would search for distributed profiles. By a “distributed profile” I mean professional information about a person collected from many sources, such as the evidence of her skills, experience, location, current employer, certifications, education, contact info, or any other info. – (posted in Nov 2011 on my blog http://booleanstrings.com )
Dream Software vs. LinkedIn• LinkedIn is a “walled garden” – It is against its data being used in volumes • Even the public profile data • Quote from a LI manager at a meeting: We do not want to become Linked-Out
LinkedIn’s Talent Pipeline, an Unexpected Competitor• Talent Pipeline in LinkedIn Recruiter – It’s a way to import your data into LinkedIn and be able to search across your data and the LI data – Imported data is automatically cross-referenced with member profiles – Powerful!
Now What?• Make your choices with your eyes open• Neither LinkedIn Talent Pipeline nor Dream Software products (nor Job Boards) cover “everything” – The Talent Pipeline and the Dream Software cover different territories, all of them important – Can be combined if you have the budget – You can compensate for either by clever cross- referencing if no budget
Learn To Cross-Reference• Free tools – Rapportive – Falcon.io – (many more) – (happy to talk offline)
