T3 – CareerBuilder – Talent Discovery (@CBforEmployers)

This week on T3 I review the new talent platform launched by CareerBuilder called Talent Discovery. The launch of Talent Discovery by CareerBuilder is basically taking all of CB’s products and aligning them in one all-in-one platform, but also adding in the integration with your own ATS.

There are other products on the market that are calling a part of this ‘talent re-discovery’, what CB has done is taken this technology and built it into their suite of products they already had. Talent Discovery will not only show you talent in CB’s resume database and their open web sourcing tool, but it will also pull in your entire ATS database and use that data as well to show you your true landscape of talent.

This new platform will also let you sync your CareerBuilder candidates directly into your ATS as well, giving you a much more robust and easier way to pull in those candidates as well.

Leveraging the latest in machine learning, Talent Discovery automatically matches relevant candidates in an employer’s private or public databases to their posted jobs. This includes CareerBuilder’s 45 million resumes and 150 million candidate profiles. The technology understands the searches recruiters are running and candidates they are viewing and looks at various signals from job seekers based on their activity to zero in on candidates who are the most likely to respond.

What I like about CB’s Talent Discovery:

– Integrating with your ATS and uncovering candidates more easily who have already applied and said they want to work for you is a giant advantage. If you’re already using CB, this is a no-brainer to utilize.

– Recruiters can easily create and send fully branded, customizable and responsive emails to an entire audience of potential candidates with various calls to action – and with all communications conveniently handled through the system. After emails are sent, recruiters can see, in real-time, which candidates interacted with the email and then view each candidate’s resume and contact information within one click so they can follow up.

-The platform provides an in-depth breakdown of the active supply and demand for a given position and average compensation ranges, indicating how difficult or easy it will be to fill the role and the best places to find the talent.

-Leveraging the latest in machine learning, Talent Discovery automatically matches relevant candidates in an employer’s private or public databases to their posted jobs.

This is a pretty robust addition to CB’s lineup of products, that actually simplifies everything under one roof. This makes a ton of sense for both CB and it’s users. Bringing both your own ATS database and your public resume databases into one platform to be able to be nurtured in one workflow is just the way it should be.

(FYI – I’m a CB shop in my own company, and I haven’t used Talent Discovery as of yet, but when I do I will update everyone on what I see, to how it actually works!)

T3 – Talent Tech Tuesday – is a weekly series here at The Project to educate and inform everyone who stops by on a daily/weekly basis on some great recruiting and sourcing technologies that are on the market.  None of the companies who I highlight are paying me for this promotion.  There are so many really cool things going on in the tech space and I wanted to educate myself and share what I find.  If you want to be on T3 – just send me a note – timsackett@comcast.net
