Did you have to say “no” to many candidates with potential? Did you come across nice profiles online and wish that you had a job opening for them? Did you feel “empty” every time you start hiring from scratch? Now there is a solution to all of that: Talent Pools.
Consider a Talent Pool a candidate database where you can save potential candidates when you don’t have a suitable open position. When you do have a job opening, you can start hiring immediately with this database full of promising candidates. Here is quick video about Talent Pools:
Let’s go through four ways of building effective Talent Pools.
1—Manually add candidates to a Talent Pool
In “Talent Pools,”select the Talent Pool you want to add candidates > Click on the “Add candidates” button on the top right corner.
Click the “Add candidates” button > Choose “Add manually” > Fill out the candidate information > Click “Add candidate” when you finish.
2—Manually bulk upload CV’s to a Talent Pool
In “Talent Pools,” select the Talent Pool you want to add candidates > Click on the “Add candidates” button on the top right corner.
Click the “Upload CV’s / Resumes” button. We accept Word, PDF, and ODT files. Use CTRL or SHIFT to select multiple files.
3—Source candidates via Recruitee’s Sourcing Extensions
There is no better way to acquire talents than actively reaching out for them. Seeing some nice profiles on LinkedIn, GitHub, Dribbble, or Facebook? Import them right way to Recruitee with our intuitive sourcing extension. A quick video on how to do it:
You can download the sourcing extension for Chrome here.
After installing the sourcing extension, you will see Recruitee icon next to a candidate’s online profile on GitHub, Facebook, Dribbble, and the likes. Click on the icon, check the candidate’s name and email, add tags or sources to candidates as you wish, then click “Import candidate.”
That’s it! Now you can find the sourced candidate in the chosen Talent Pool.
4—Organize candidates in a Talent Pool
The easiest way to manage candidates in a Talent Pool is using tags and source tags.
You can tag a candidate by going to their candidate profile > Click the “+” button next to “Tags” or “Sources” > Type the tag(s) you want and click “Add” when you finish. You can later filter candidates based on these tags, as well as other info in their candidate profiles.
Click the “Filters” tab in your Talent Pool. Here you can choose and combine different filters: from sources, tags, to ratings, to filter candidates.
What you can also do here is to select candidates you’ve found and perform Bulk Actions.
And… that’s a wrap! You did it! 😀
