Overall Satisfaction with Entelo

I currently use Entelo to source and reach out to passive candidates. I'm using this mostly for our technical/engineering hires but I do also leverage the email reach outs for business roles as well. We're using this currently in recruiting but I do leverage this platform to create review lists for our hiring managers. This is a great way to message and track emails, which is great in regards to the fact that LinkedIn messages are less effective as they were a few years back.


  • Sourcing passive candidate
  • Emailing candidates directly and setting up drip email campaigns
  • Provide data and analytics on response rates for outbound candidate communication
  • Ease of use when it comes to navagating candidate profiles, inclusing parsing profiles directly in Applicant Tracking systems (ATS)


  • It's a little expensive
  • You have a limited number of outbound emails and profile downloads
  • Sometimes it can take a bit of time for Entelo to give you additional information requests.
  • So far 17% of my hiring for 2018 has come via Entelo
  • Entelo has already paid for itself in the first half of the year.
  • I have not have any negative impacts from using Entelo
I've used and demoed several products of which I've used the below;

-Connectifier (solid tool but limited actionable activities)
-Gild (no longer in business)
-Hired (great but there are a lot of people going after the same profiles...which creates bidding wars)
-Recruitifi (i liked this but the UI was a bit difficult to navigate through)

I'd have to say that I think Entelo is the most versatile tool for sourcing and ease of use, as timing and the ability to move fast is one of the most important things when it comes to recruiting.

Entelo is a great tool for both large and small recruiting teams. I use this with Linkedin Recruiter Light which is nice because I do most of my sourcing through the platform but can toggle between Entelo and LinkedIn. I like to leverage the Entelo Chrome extension so I can go straight to Entelo via a tab on the Linkedin UI. Entelo is less effective if you are not going to be actively souring candidates.
