If you help with recruiting for multiple companies, you’re likely inundated with requests from job seekers to be included in candidate searches. It can seem like everyone has a former colleague, cousin, or best friend who wants to join your network. Business cards accumulate, unanswered emails pile up, and opportunities come and go while hopeful job seekers wait for you to follow up.
But what if you didn’t have to be a bottleneck? Imagine if there was a way to collect a job seeker’s contact information from your job board even if they weren’t applying for a specific position. It would allow job seekers to think beyond a singular job listing and opt into being part of your network in the long term.
Conventional job boards aren’t set up to allow for this functionality. They’re built to allow visitors to go through an application workflow for one specific position at one singular point in time, which takes a short-sighted and inefficient approach to building a talent pipeline.
There are plenty of qualified professionals who you’d want to be in your organization’s database even when they don’t have a position in their sights. Perhaps there aren’t any current open jobs that require an elite candidate’s qualifications. Maybe a candidate isn’t actively looking at the moment, but they want to stay in touch in case they’re a perfect fit for something down the road. Or perhaps someone would be an ideal candidate for a role with a “stealth company.” Whatever the case, you need a way to capture these job seekers – without wasting your own time on data entry.
The need for a better solution is evident, and the Getro Talent Network provides just that. With this innovative tool, job board visitors can add their contact details and backgrounds to a database, regardless of whether they are applying for a specific position or not. What's more, this information will update automatically without any additional effort on your part.
What is the Getro Talent Network?
The Getro Talent Network is a contact database that job board visitors can elect to join on their own, without any action from you. The Getro Talent Network sign up lives within yourGetroJobs board where candidates can answer questions about their preferences and background.
Once they complete the sign-up, their information is stored in the Talent Network which is visible from the Contacts tab in your Getro Admin Portal. From there, you can see their information — which is automatically kept up to date through their LinkedIn profile — and they can stay updated about potential jobs they may be interested in through Job Alerts.
The Benefits of Empowering Job Seekers
Empowering job seekers to join your network can be a huge boon to your recruiting, allowing more people to find their way into candidate searches with less work on your part. Here are some ways the Getro Talent Network can help your team:
