LinkedIn Talent Hub

I think Talent Hub could be well suited for companies that do not have any structure around their hiring and no internal recruiters to support them. The system will allow the manager to post their job and leave it alone but if you're a company with structure and internal teams to support recruiting efforts, there are better ATS platforms out there.

I find it works really well in a medium-sized company like ours. It has truly streamlined and organized the hiring process tremendously. I find both recruiters and hiring teams have benefited greatly since implementation. The system is also extremely intuitive to use, the fact that little to no training is required for new users is a big plus in a fast-paced environment and the need for a fast hiring process.

Pros

LinkedIn Talent Hub

  • LinkedIn Talent provides customized templates that can be used to quickly reach out to candidates via LinkedIn InMail.
  • The pipeline feature allows recruiters and/or human resource directors to build, track, and manage candidates. It lets you organize candidates into folders and create lists with reminders.
  • You can share your activities, projects, searches, candidate profiles, and applicant notes with other people throughout the company.

  • I love the integration with Google calendar because everyone who is involved in the interview gets an invitation and it shows up on your calendar.
  • The use of auto-fill templates helps significantly and speeds up the time it takes to send an email to interested candidates.
  • The offer approval process is easy to edit and helps keep everyone on the same page.

Cons

LinkedIn Talent Hub

  • InMails. The con of sending InMails is that many times you don’t get a response back. Linkedin should have a feature where a recruiter can know if their InMails was even viewed. Better mechanisms need to be put in my place for the InMails feature.
  • Cost. LinkedIn recruiter is not cheap. I wish the cost could be a bit lower especially if there are multiple users.
  • Connectifier is not helpful for global candidates. Many of the candidates that I reach out to are international. Unfortunately, Connectifier isn’t helpful in obtaining email addresses for these international candidates.

  • Within the job posting area, formatting or, reformatting text, can be difficult.
  • There is no use of the "back" button allowed. If you purposely, or not purposely, hit the "back" botton you will lose all of your work from that session.
  • We have encountered a problem with "evergreen" postings. We recruit for the same position title, within a large geographic area. The SmartRecruiters system starts to see multiple positions, with the same title, as spam. This results in the position not being posted. We have worked with Customer Service to resolve this "glitch" and seem to experience less of this at the current time.

Our team is currently on a free tier as we only hire a handful of people per year. With that said, I would not switch if the low usage tier was paid. We have several years of data and candidates in the system and they have continued to make the product better. I discovered SR years ago from their community management and customer services efforts, which were outstanding. They care about their users, and they're passionate about making them successful. They've definitely evolved to become more enterprise focused, but the free SmartStart versions still blows away competitors. Plus, they've got some kickass t-shirts

The ease of use is a primary reason we use this tool. Our employees have a full time job and being involved in the recruiting process needs to be easy and fast so they will participate.

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.

I have had outstanding support with them. Even though it's not as easy to pick up the phone, I do get a response and they usually try to have it resolved without escalating to another level.

Alternatives Considered

LinkedIn Talent Hub

All of these platforms have their pros and cons - none are perfect! I like the connectivity of LinkedIn Talent, and the exposure it brings. It is also fairly easy to use. However, we have chosen to utilize Workable more, as it has better integration options, a larger job board pool and more user friendly for our employees. Additionally, we do not have sales rep contacting us frequently, like we do with LinkedIn

SmartRecruiters has less features, but therefore it is easier to learn and costs less. We had a much lower participation rate from franchisees when utilizing iCIMS. iCIMS is great for those that are willing to invest the time in learning it and of course the extra money. But our franchisees (hiring managers) were not using it because it was too complex. So for us, it proved to be a poor investment. Our users vastly prefer the more user-freindly SmartRecruiters system

Return on Investment

LinkedIn Talent Hub

  • LinkedIn Talent has allowed us to truly build up our candidate database/pipeline.
  • As we have started to explore job postings as well, we have found that it has been effective in targeting the audiences that are most relevant to the roles that we are working on.
  • Ability to now filter through active candidate preferences.
Anonymous | TrustRadius Reviewer

SmartRecruiters

  • We've achieved a better quality of hire overall, particularly with using the compare candidate feature.
  • Time-savings for sure. With the newly released delay rejection feature, this has allowed me to keep up with candidate actions without compromising the candidate experience.
  • We've been able to make some tactical decisions with the analytics suite data which has provided a higher ROI on our recruiting ad budget.
