If you have a job opening or a high turn around rate like we do. (we are a staffing company) [CareerSiteBuilder] is a great place to to start. It is affordable and reaches hundreds of potential employees. When you search resumes sometimes when you enter keywords you have to play around with it to find the right phrasing. Its not difficult just time consuming.

I really feel like [LinkedIn Talent Hub] has great potential to be used by many many companies. I think if it is made a little more user friendly with a little more development on the back end to remove some bugs, this could be a potential game changer. I have enjoyed working and getting to know this.
Read full review Pros Search features. Quantity of resumes. The format that the candidates information is presented. Read full review Source of talent - LinkedIn has become the #1 place to engage talent. Targeting / advertising / sponsoring employment ads are very effective. They are costly, but effective. Connecting with talent via InMails and ability to send InMails to a pretty targeted audience with ease is great. This allows you to reach out/connect fast with people that "fit" what you are looking for. Other sites for recruiting, etc. are hit and miss. The quality of results is the strongest on LinkedIn and has been for many, many years. Read full review Cons There are some missing functionalities that could be addressed such as fusing resume search and recruitment edge. Read full review Reporting. Major lacking here. If a job is closed then reopened (which that feature was recently removed), all reporting is wiped clean and picked back up with the "reopen" date. So it doesn't give a full history of the job activity. Lacks adequate approvals in the system. If you're a company with a risk of audits, I would not recommend Talent Hub. They lack compliance: the system allows us to "hire" someone who never applied to the job. Req history could be incomplete with the way reporting functions are set up. The system puts passive "sourced" candidates and applicants in the same bucket for pipeline workflows. Disposition status is inadequate and greatly lacking, etc. Dashboard is not customizable. We do not have our own unique req IDs. The system generates project IDs but these numbers are shared with all their clients, they're not unique to Ora so they are somewhat random and not in order. They do not differentiate between a networking project and an approved requisition. There's more, too many to list. Read full review Support Rating
Although we never experienced any issues with the LinkedIn Talent platform or required any support, we always knew in the event that we did need assistance, it was readily available. LinkedIn as a whole is always very supportive and responsive whenever I've had any issues or even a simple question in the past. I'm sure anyone experiencing difficulties with the platform would have a resolution from the support team just about instantly.

It's definitely better than other competitors because of one a better pool of candidates, who are well categorised and filtered, and the database is well updated. Also, it has a better UI with end to end hiring requirement management, that helps to make hiring faster and smarter. The UX though is a bit laggy, which can be improved
Read full review Return on Investment We have been able to present MORE candidates to our clients in the staffing industry, and therefore fill more positions. We are able to find MORE QUALIFIED candidates using search features, to in turn fill more direct-hire positions. We have to pay or Career Builder for thousands of people, so that takes away from ROI. Read full review Positive impact. The tool has helped us in finding quality candidates for our hard to fill positions! Helps in “pipelining” even after we fill a position, we make a folder of prospective candidates that we find through the platform. This list is then revisited once we have additional positions! Outreach to global candidates. We have an office in Spain and we have found so many qualified candidates on the platform to fill those positions! Read full review ScreenShots
