Talent Communities – The New Black

New black

A recent, small but significant change has been to re-badge SCHOOLS as TALENT COMMUNITIES.

‘Talent Communities’ better describes the focus of Spruik.me (and HealthyPeople.com.au). It’s all about bringing together like minded individuals and employers.

There were two key reasons for this;

We realised it’s not just schools that have a collection of people interested in working in a specific industry. For example…

Recruiters, why hide your light under a bushel? Provide your clients with a ready list of candidates, both passive and actively looking. We can let you know as soon as employers navigate to your page – one of your Business Development people can be on them right away.

Industry Associations, this is a perfect way to increase the value of your annual fees. You have complete control of who has access to your page and who and what roles are promoted.

The second reason for shifting the focus away from schools related simply to the challenge in finding a sympathetic ear. I’m not saying I’ve given up on teaching institutions, they’re just a tougher nut to crack than I expected – for many and varied reasons.

Other recent updates include more informative emails about promoted candidates, better filtering on candidate searches and a tweak to the search tool in mobile view. 

If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
