How to Source for Top Talent - Recruiters


Any employee in your Teamable network can proactively identify top talent by clicking on the star next to a connection.

Many companies specifically ask engineering talent (or for other hard-to-source roles) to proactively go through their network and mark top talent to make it easier for the recruiting team to request introductions.

Every employee in your Teamable network typically knows 5-50 people who may not be top of mind but who would be great additions to your company. These connections are spread over multiple networks, but viewable under a single pane in Teamable.


What is Top Talent?
Top Talent is exactly what is sounds like: a professional connection that your employee has worked with previously who is highly respected and has specialized knowledge which would be beneficial to your company.

Every company has the option of establishing their own litmus test and communicating to their employees how exactly to determine whether someone in their network meets this bar for entry.


Using Top Talent
Top talent will automatically bubble up to the top of any recruiter search whenever an individual's skills match the search terms. 

A recruiter can also search only top talent by checking the optional box 'Show top talent only' under 'more filters'.


A recruiter can also source directly from the Top Talent tab in Teamable.


From here, all top talent for your company is visible.

In the image above, you can see the candidate on the left, positions for which the candidate has previously been recommended (if any), available social networks, and notes from ATS, if connected. In the middle, you can see the employees in your network who have marked the candidate as top talent.

To reach out to anyone identified as Top Talent, follow these steps (illustrated in the animated gif below):

  1. Click add to list.
  2. Create a new list (or add to an existing one).
  3. Under Job Lists, click on list.
  4. Click request intro.
  5. Click next.
  6. Click Send Requests.

That's it! Rinse, wash, repeat.
