Overall Satisfaction with LinkedIn Talent

We use LI Talent in our Talent Acquisition Department only. It helps us to address our hiring needs as a whole.
  • Great way to look at past jobs and candidates and keeping that information organized. I like how it semi-ranks them based on the job description.
  • Enjoy the vast options for sourcing.
  • Good at identifying candidates who have prior communication with other members of team or company.
  • Analytics. They have been off ever since I can remember.
  • Searching. My colleagues and I put in same criteria but get different results. Some candidates not included. Frustrating.
  • No need for clutter. I never use clipboard because it is hard to select some here and there and then re-file them. Wish it had more filter options.
  • A calendar to set up reminders and interviews would be great.
  • It has definitely given us better visibility into our market and a better picture of candidates.
  • On a negative side, if you do not have enough jobs to fill reqs, you feel the cost and cannot change.
  • Increase into quality candidates who want more of the environment and structure we offer.
Taleo is new to me, but so far seems to cover all sides of talent acquisition. BirdDogHR is great for smaller operations as a simple model with good but minimal options. Salesforce is a great CRM but more for sales than people management. Bullhorn used to be great but the customization is too complex and caused a lot of business loss and issues.
LinkedIn Talent is great for sourcing passive candidates with specific skill sets. It is not a great resource for quick hires because unless they apply, you cannot reach them. With mass email, it could cause issues as well. I also think candidates should not show common people as when asking for a reference you may not know the extent of the relationship or dynamics and have seen that backfire sadly.
