jobandtalent is the first social recruitment platform in Europe that allows candidates to leverage their Facebook friends to help them achieve sucess in the job search.
In the last 15 years the job hunting experience on job boards (such as Monster, Careerbuilder, etc.,) has been a mere copycat of the help wanted ads in the newspaper. Candidates have been alone in the job search and these platforms have been unable to replicate what happens in the real world: where social connections are key.
jobandtalent is a social recruitment platform that connects with Facebook, allowing candidates to view which of their friends are working at the companies they are interested in applying; they can use that information to obtain employee referrals thus increasing their chances of getting hired. On the company side, employers not only see a candidate’s professional profile but also their social profile. The social profile shows the connections that a candidate has with company employees, this way candidates can demonstrate their connectedness to companies when applying via jobandtalent and employers can easily obtain employee referrals.
Top notch companies such as Google, Deloitte, L´Oreal, Toyota, Accenture, Ericsson, JP Morgan, Amazon, Walt Disney, KPMG, Experian etc., and more than 20% of companies in the Fortune Global 500 use jobandtalent to source talent.
