Can Recruiting Search Engines Find You?

Wonder what job candidate selection looks like from the employer's side? This video is an advertisement for TalentSpring, an online recruiting tool for employers. TalentSprng offers to find, sort, and rank job candidates it finds on job boards, LinkedIn, and through web searches.

I'm not endorsing TalentSpring; I simply think this is an interesting presentation of the type of instruments some employers use to find job seekers, like you!

If you answer "yes" to the following questions, a search engine like TalentSpring should be able to find you.

  1. Is your resume online, up to date, and filled with keywords that define you as the ideal candidate?
  2. Are you a member of LinkedIn (and possibly other networks)? Is your profile current and does it contain relevant keywords?
  3. Are you active in the blogosphere and online professional groups, using keywords when you write about industry topics?
