MightyRecruiter’s new free add-on makes it fast and easy to find candidate contact information online and seamlessly conduct outreach
For hiring professionals, gone is the recruiting landscape of milk and honey, where candidates were eager for work and ripe for the picking. There is no denying it: those days are over. With the nation’s unemployment rate at an uber-low 4.3 percent, recruiters and hiring manager are in fierce competition in the race to attract top talent. To put those numbers into perspective, Glassdoor research suggests that the ratio of unemployed Americans to open jobs is 1.4 to 1, compared to 6.6 to 1 during the last recession in July 2009.
Recruiters are always looking for ways to source hard-to-find candidates but, as you well know, not every tool is created equal. With the job market at near full-employment – meaning that almost everyone who wants a job has a job – being able to lure competent candidates to your open role is more important than ever. The first step in the process is having the ability to access accurate contact information for qualified candidates before anyone else. But with so many options out there, how do you choose the right method?
Enter MightySourcer from MightyRecruiter, a brand new Chrome extension designed to provide recruiters and hiring managers with quick, easy, and up-to-date contact information from millions of social profiles. The tool saves recruiters and hiring managers valuable time, which is crucial in the race to nab the perfect candidate, and also expands the talent pool exponentially.
According to MightyRecruiter Product Manager Ann Barzman, the extension provides information about literally hundreds of millions of users across a variety of channels, all with the click of your mouse.
“While recruiters search for candidates on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn or Github, MightySourcer helps append reliable data such as email addresses, phone numbers, additional social profiles, education and work experience,” she said. “The extension was designed specifically to help recruiters work more efficiently in a tight job market. With fewer people actively looking for a job, employers have been struggling to fill some roles. MightyRecruiter set out to design an extension which would help recruiters reach more qualified candidates quickly by providing an easy way to view additional data, add them to a job and invite them to apply. This ability is critical to successful recruiting and MightySourcer makes that task infinitely easier.”
MightySourcer makes finding contact information for candidates simple. Just install the extension for free, identify attractive candidates on LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, or GitHub, and MightySourcer provides their appended data, including contact info, skills, work experience, and education.
Unlike other sourcing tools, MightySourcer gives users the ability to invite candidates to apply for jobs instantly through 100 percent customizable email messages, thereby reducing the length of time recruiters and hiring managers must spend tracking down candidates.
Once you find an attractive candidate, MightySourcer also allows recruiters and hiring managers to share interesting profiles with their colleagues. A single click will send a PDF of the person’s profile via email, eliminating the extra step of cutting and pasting URLs into emails.
The best part? MightySourcer is free for everyone. With a MightyRecruiter account, users automatically get a set number of free searches every month. Don’t have a MightyRecruiter account? Just sign up for a MightySourcer free trial to instantly have access to three free searches.
