I was keen to hear recruiters' opinions about the model behind Talentspring
. I have my own reservations.
Snapshot: potential candidates enter their profiles, subject to voting on other peoples’ profiles. system algorithms are meant to pick candidates who put crappy scores. recruiters use these scores to spot top talent in their corresponding industries and pay to contact the people they like (recruiters need to enter a JD in the system)
Value prop for job seekers: you resume stands out in front of recruiters because it carries a user-generated score (the merit score)
Value prop for employers/recruiters: easier to spot top talent because of the - you guessed it - Merit score
