Bullhorn is not as easy to use as TargetRecruit. TargetRecruit is web-based, and you can use it anywhere. The protection is still there because it will send a code to your email if you have used the application to a new device.

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.

TargetRecruit
It is well suited for companies that need to: - build a relationship with new clients and candidates - prolong or keep the relationship with existing clients and candidates - personalize emails or messages to clients and candidates, and make sure that it will not take a lot of time - quality check all data entries in a short amount of time - create reports and do mass emails to certain clients and candidates

Pros
LinkedIn
  • 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.

TargetRecruit
  • Makes candidate/client relationship for personalized
  • Makes it possible for us to keep track of all the things happening to a certain client or recruiting candidate
  • Let us avoid possible do not contact request due to numerous emails sent by our firms to certain individuals
  • Manages cost and time in sourcing and reaching out to candidates

Cons
LinkedIn
  • 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.

TargetRecruit
  • When uploading certain resumes, I hope the TargetRecruit candidate search also maps the previous attachments we included versus just mapping the most recent resume
  • When creating reports, I hope the functionality is faster because it loads in minutes instead of seconds
  • There are instances where the values we add on a single profile is maxed out or limited - I hope they can make it unlimited values

Support Rating
LinkedIn
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

TargetRecruit
Bullhorn is not as easy to use as TargetRecruit. TargetRecruit is web-based, and you can use it anywhere. The protection is still there because it will send a code to your email if you have used the application to a new device. ZipRecruiter is a way for our firm to get inbound applicants. However, most of those applicants are not a fit for the role. ZipRecruiter doesn't have the functionality to scrutinize and avoid unfit candidates in applying for the role. In totality, LinkedIn was messaging, and the tracking system is not that yet updated as to how TargetRecruit makes it easy, and powerful. LinkedIn message and tracking system still doesn't have the option to let us know how to avoid messaging the candidate once per week. There is a way for you to see it on LinkedIn but it takes more than three clicks for you to do it. Whereas, in TargetRecruit, you can see it immediately in the candidate or client profile.

Return on Investment
LinkedIn
  • 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!
