New module enables companies to capture desirable passive talent on social media
WALTHAM , Mass., July 27, 2010—Jobmagic, the largest social media recruiting platform, released today its Talent Network module for social media. Employers of all sizes can now capture the highly qualified passive candidates across 300 social networks.
While Talent Networks used to be a nice-to-have feature for career sites on the Web, they are a must-have for social media recruiting. The viral nature of social media delivers job postings predominantly to a large number of valuable passive candidates. Those candidates are not ready to apply but may be interested in the right opportunity in the future. Without a Talent Network option, companies lose 90% of the passive candidates on social media.
With the Jobmagic platform, employers and recruiters can capture the majority of passive candidates who express interest in future job openings. Jobmagic places a Talent Network sign-up link—”Not ready to Apply? Join our Talent Network” —on all company job postings. Candidates who are not ready to apply can opt into a Talent Network by providing basic contact information. The contact list can be exported to any CRM system or ATS and used for proactive marketing of employers’ jobs. This dramatically increases an employer’s available talent pool, amplifies referral hiring, and increases engagement with the employer brand.
“Only large companies could afford Talent Networks in the past, but Jobmagic makes them available to companies of all sizes, and even to individual recruiters,” said Jindrich Liska, chief executive officer and founder of Jobmagic. “Employers who capture passive candidates in their proprietary talent network today have a significant competitive advantage in the war for talent tomorrow.”
