Broadbean

Broadbean is well suited in the event that a candidate search has come to a standstill, and it's become virtually impossible to find the right person for the job. Broadbean serves as a method and tool to find that "passive" candidate who could lead to a placement. Because it's easy to use and versatile, the posting is not time-consuming or tedious.

Cons

Broadbean

  • Some of the job boards that serve on Broadbean are not the best, and can sometimes reach the wrong type of candidate (background & experience level).
  • The technology needs to be updated with the new ATS changes. There hasn't been an update to the system in quite some time.
  • They could work on parsing their data better with social media outlets, like posting on Linkedin, Twitter, etc.
