I travel too much. Just in the past month, I was in Italy, China, India, Malaysia, Singapore and I’m now writing to you from South Africa. In each country, I speak with some of the largest employers and I find they have a lot in common: they all suffer from a lack of quality talent, they still rely heavily on job boards and they are generally very cautious about using Facebook. Yet, the numbers are in: Facebook saves money and delivers better talent pools than marketplaces in the volume hiring space. We have data to prove it in each geography.
While our sourcing methodology is pretty much the same globally, removing adoption barriers often boils down to localizing the user experience. This month, Talkpush has done just that with the release of our multilingual interface — users can now pick which language they want to work in — and with the WeChat integration — so critical for the China market.
More details below, along with my opinion post on the Augmented Recruiter.
