TruFiles Sourcing Technologies
Professionals not actively looking for a job typically don’t want to be found too easily online.
They won’t publish their contact information or work histories on public sites for fear of attracting spam. And in-demand talent, such as engineers or programmers, fear the attention even more as it opens a door to throngs of recruiter inquiries. And yet, the people you likely want to recruit are so-called passives: professionals who would consider a switch, but aren’t actively seeking one. They are those you most want to find, and also those who try hardest to shrink from sight.
Yet even the savviest professionals leave pockets of data sprinkled across the largest social networks (e.g. LinkedIn, AboutMe, Facebook, Twitter), as well as on specialised sites (e.g. StackOverflow, GitHub or a personal blog). Sourcing technologies are able to aggregate the bits and pieces to compile a complete—and in some cases quite sophisticated—profile of working professionals. And more than just stitching together what they find on social profiles, these sourcing engines also use complex ranking algorithms to understand individual candidate’s influence among their peers, skills and knowledge, and even personal passions and motivations—all of which may figure into their proprietary ranking system.
