This is a blatant product pitch. It's okay to do this occasionally, says Jim Durbin, so I thought I'd showcase how the TalentFilter software works. Recruiters currently spend up to 65% of their day searching for resumes on job boards. Although fancy Web 2.0 services promise passive candidate results, the truth is most of us use job boards because they work. You need the job boards, but what if you can automate the search process? That's what Talent Filter was built for.
Simply use the Web-based one-user interface to input your job descriptions to search, match and manage online resume databases. TalentFilter's easy-to-use
new search technology offers automatic advice on search strings, and
then it sweeps all your paid and free job board subscriptions, ranks
results, contacts the best matches, and automatically schedules the
most qualified and interested candidates for interviews. Its one-format
resume template provides clients views of each qualified candidate.
Rather than using search strings, TalentFilter also uses the entire job description as the basis for the search:
Job description based matching: Instead of matching with overgeneralized and unsuccessful search strings, TalentFilter takes your customized job description and uses it as a
keyword to match your needs with more accuracy. Your results will yield
potential candidates ranked by the closest matches.
Visualize this. You get to work, turn on your computer, and waiting for you on your desktop is your e-mail, your RSS feeds, and your resumes that were downloaded for the day's phone calls and e-mails. That's efficiency.
