Londonderry, N.H. — April 11
HireAbility.com, a provider of integrated recruiting software and services, has unveiled Talent Trader, a hosted professional networking platform that enables numerous recruiting communities to link their members to make more placements and obtain industry advice, resources, job opportunities and more.
Talent Trader is the platform for HireAbility’s own recruiter network of more than 350 professional staffing firms, and it can be private-labeled for other networks of any size.
Using Talent Trader, members of large national staffing associations or small geographic-specific recruiter groups easily can locate and communicate with potential business partners, networking contacts, nd industry experts.
Detailed member profiles, discussion groups, activity ratings, endorsements, user-definable “recruiting partners” and other tools once found only in social networks make this possible.
Additionally, because recruiters interact in members-only arenas, their discussions are more candid and carry more valuable decision-making information than those conducted in online public chat rooms.
Talent Trader also offers recruiters significant advantages over today’s social networking tools. Functions for sharing job openings and candidates, cross posting to job boards and add-ons for Internet resume mining are just a few of the ways HireAbility meets the unique needs of the staffing industry.
Its own recruiter network leverages these features and more suchas libraries of shared documents, recruiter training materials, webinars by industry experts, resume parsing and weekly split-placement conference calls.
“Until now, countless formal and informal recruiting groups and associations had no infrastructure or tools to allow member communication and information sharing beyond simple e-mail or public forums,” said Craig Silverman, HireAbility executive vice president of sales and marketing. “Talent Trader provides an advanced tool for messaging, job and candidate searching and sharing, as well as other staffing-specific functions that have been lacking on the market.
“In the last several years, social networking sites have exploded in popularity, but there hasn't been anything of real substance specifically tailored to the recruiting industry. We are excited to be the first to market with a tool of this caliber.”
