Likelihood to Recommend

Accurate Background

Accurate is a global organization that has background checks available internationally. The report formatting could be improved. It's messy and difficult to read.

LinkedIn Talent

LinkedIn Talent is well suited for those who are looking to find candidates for their technical position and for sourcing in general. Every organization should use this platform as it makes a difference in recruiting efforts. Everyone has a Linkedin profile and it’s one of the best professional sites to reach out to candidates. I recommend that any organization use this.

LinkedIn Talent

  • I don't know the statistics behind it, but LinkedIn has an extensive network - I would imagine one of, if not the, largest professional networks out there. Being able to tap into that network is incredibly helpful from a recruitment standpoint. Both utilizing the free job board and the paid postings allow us to reach a wide audience.
  • There are multiple options to fit the needs of each organization. Some of the larger packages, such as job slots, didn't make sense for us, given the size of our organization and how much hiring we do. However, I liked that packages could be customized to meet our needs.
  • The mobile app is great - optimized for my phone, easy to use, easy to read.
  • I enjoy the transparency and connectivity that is used with LinkedIn. When posting jobs, we can link them to our recruiter, which allows candidates to get more information about our department and company. We want to establish our connection with a candidate from the start, and LinkedIn makes this easy.
  • Additional products come out regularly, which allows you to change up your hiring practices/reach new candidates. These tools help source candidates easily.
  • I appreciate the tips and tricks LinkedIn publishes through their blog, articles, etc. They conduct a lot of create interviews and publish quality content.

Cons

  • Background check report format could be improved by being easier to read. It's a little messy.

LinkedIn Talent

  • When running an advanced search, you can sort out individuals that have previously been contacted, tagged, or saved to a project. I wish they would add to this list the ability to sort out profiles that you have viewed within the last day, week, month, etc., to help me avoid accidentally looking at the same profile over and over again.
  • I wish job postings were more affordable. This is a feature that I would like to be able to take advantage of, but my understanding both from current and previous use is that job postings on LinkedIn cost an arm and a leg.
  • I would appreciate if I could either see if a profile has already been added to our resume database so I can check to see if another recruiter is actively working with them or if someone possibly has in the past. Although rare, I do sometimes run into candidates that are already working with another recruiter in a different position. It is unfortunately not feasible to check every profile against our database before sending an InMail if I hope to have an even mildly productive day.

I'm giving this a 6 only because in my 1 year at my current position we have had 3 different reps. The first was unresponsive and passive when attempting to help us. When she came out to do a demo on a new feature launch it was scattered and all over the place. The person we have now is great and is super helpful when ever we need him.

Alternatives Considered

Accurate Background

Accurate is much better. The most thorough background check company I have ever used.

Honestly, so far, LinkedIn is the best. BeyondCore just isn't known enough by job seekers and almost every time I do a search, I find very few candidates. Only thing I do like about BeyondCore is they show the last date of activity for that job seeker.

Return on Investment

Accurate Background

  • Our turn around time has decreased by half as far as complete background checks are concerned. This allows us to keep our candidates and improve their experience.
  • We averaged a savings of over $2,000/year thanks to Accurate's ability to create customized packages.

  • Positive: I personally have found many individuals who I wouldn't have found elsewhere for positions that are rather difficult to fill. More qualified individuals as well.
