San Francisco, Calif. — June 25
TalentBin, a talent search engine, announced its full integration with Avature CRM, a Web 2.0 platform designed for social networking, recruiting and referral management. The partnership will make TalentBin available immediately to Avature’s customer base of more than 200 companies.
The addition of TalentBin to Avature’s social recruiting “Web sources” aims to extend the reach of its social sourcing capabilities beyond Google search and active candidates on job boards to now include a comprehensive search and discovery of passive candidates online.
While TalentBin has previously been available as a Web application and Google Chrome plug-in, this marks the launch of its partner program, as the first of its integrations with enterprise CRM, HRIS or Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS).
As part of the talent discovery process, TalentBin aggregates a candidate’s implicit professional activity — the information they share across social networks like Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Meetup and Quora. Coupled with industry-specific social communities like Github, Sourceforge and Bitbucket for software engineering, for example, the integration aims to bolster passive professional profiles with vital information on skills and expertise.
The goal is a more complete and accurate 360-degree view of a candidate, covering professional skills to personal interests — all essential information to determining ideal job fit.
TalentBin then takes it one step further, compiling all contact information such as email addresses, Twitter handle and more to help facilitate direct candidate engagement.
TalentBin offers an API for integrations with software partners, and already has more than 200 million candidate profiles cultivated from more than 30 professional social media communities.
