Did you know that 87% of the Facebook traffic goes through smart phones? With only a small fraction of people carrying a resume on their phone, it is no surprise that recruiting on Facebook has been relatively slow to take off (compared to Linkedin ). The traditional alternative to the resume would be to ask candidates to fill out a long form, but that is not mobile-friendly and results in very low response rate.
With Talkpush in just 3-clicks, candidates can start their phone interview on the go, which creates an Audio Profile which is just as good if not better than a resume. Some of our clients are successfully using Talkpush to power their Facebook sourcing with excellent results. Read on below for more, along with the launch of our new Audio Profiles together with more updates from our company.
The new Audio Profile
We revamped the layout of the shared audio profile to give more insights at a glance. See a sample here. Parsing information from resumes, and complementing it with information gathered from social media and from the Talkpush interviews, our engine automatically creates thousands of these easily-shareable audio profiles every month.

Candidates can now browse jobs, pre-qualify them via a automated phone interview (thus 24/7), and easily share job opportunities with their friends.
