How do I use it?
First you will need to create a project, or open a project that has already been created. Once you create a project, you will be able to begin using Talent Persona and Market Insights. Within your project, click on the Sourcing link at the top of the page. This will take to the below screen, where you will select AI Sourcing - Create an AI Sourcing Task.
Next, you will enter the title of the job you are looking for. This will bring in additional, similar titles and give you an insight into the potential candidate pool as shown below. Right away you can see a ton of candidate information, all based on a job title.
To get more specifics on the exact talent pool you are looking for, start adding in mandatory skills. As you do this, the Candidate Insights will adjust to show you the pool with the title you have input that also have the required skills you need.
As you can see below, the numbers in each area shifted drastically when we input Aws and Kpi as mandatory skills. You will want to be sure to only put mandatory skills here or your results will be quite small.
To view the Candidate Persona information, click on the button above the candidate amount, next to the Candidate Insights button. This will take you to a resume type view of the candidate pool. There are several sections where you can input data to alter the candidate profile including skills, major, and diversity.
In the “Major” section, you can also choose to extend your search to include similar degrees. This will allow you to have significantly more candidates that fit the criteria. To do this, just click “Extended Search” in the box next to the Major section.
This could be a good way to let the hiring team know they could open their candidate pool much wider by being a bit more open on the specific degree type. This section will also show you specific schools the candidates are coming from. The extended search option is also in the Companies section, in case you have a target company but want to look at similar companies as well.
How do I see the specific candidates?
To find the specific candidates, you will need to do a full sourcing campaign. The Candidate Insight and Persona feature is available to give you a high level overview, but you are unable to click on these data points to feed directly to live candidates.
To see specific market information, you can click the “Insights” tab on the left hand side of the tool. Fill in the criteria on the left, shown below to see information about the Top Titles, Companies and more that have the information you are looking for. Once you are finished entering the criteria, click the “Generate Candidates” button to have insights generated.
What if I want to hide the information?
If you want to temporarily hide this information, click on the “Disable Persona” button above the Job Title section. To add it back, click the same button and it will immediately reappear.
