Introducing new profile design and Talentscore

We’ve made all Talentag users even more irresistable by redesigning how everyone’s profile looks. We had added features and profile elements over time and this meant that it was difficult to get a sense of someone at a first glance, which many of you pointed out as well (please, do keep the feedback coming). So we redesigned the profile to show the most important things about you at the top area

5 tips to get more out of Talentag

Wanna make sure you get the most out of Talentag? Here are 5 tips to make sure your social CV is up to date and getting feedback from others works well: 1. Claim a professions badge Key part of your Talentag profile is a professions badge, which describes what do you do at work. Make sure you have one. Now on you can claim it yourself and make it easier

Compare your tags to friends and peers

We’ve added a nifty little feature that lets you compare your tags to those of your friends or peers. Now you can see which of your perceiver personality trairs are unique to you, which ones you share with either your friends or people in your field and which ones you miss out on. We’ve also refreshed the design of your home screen and friends page. You can now see the

Event badges – we think they will be big

Sending badges has by far been the most popular activity on Talentag and we’ve added new badges almost every week – most of them have been requested by our users. This has been nicely complemented by badges that people receive in the process, the so-called game mechanics badges like Popular for receiving a certain number of tags or Generous for tagging others (our game mechanics deserves a standalone post one

We’ve changed history, and more

We’ve changed the History tab in Talentag with today’s release, I mean. It used to be you could only see the last thirty or so something lines of recent activity. The new one not only scrolls to infinity but allows you to sort history by everone’s, your friends’ and your own activity only. Follow people that are not your ‘friends’ If you want to keep an eye on someone you

Awesome coverage and a standalone site for Talentag

It’s been good days (and some late evenings) here at the Emp.ly towers. The main piece of news is that we’ve opened Talentag as a standalone site, as opposed to Facebook app-only approach we had before. We did this so that we could guarantee better reliability and speed for our users. Facebook and its API are great but they don’t always guarantee the best app user experience for someone with

New features: Use Talentag to ask feedback and build your ‘crowd-sourced CV’

We’ve added a couple of nifty features to Talentag. In addition to badges you can now give and receive tags and vouches as well. For example, I could vouch my colleague Jüri in his role as the co-founder of Emp.ly. Or I could tag it with words that relate very specifically to that role and not anything he has done before. This way you can use Talentag not only to

We’ve launched Talentag

We’re on a roll. Just days after opening the doors for Emply the job ads posting service we launched Talentag. It’s a facebook app that lets you pay compliments to co-workers or friends in form of nice badges. For instance I could say that Veli in our team is the greatest designer in the world, or I could say he’s helpful. As SocialTimes puts it: There’s always the chance that this

How does Emply work?

Good candidates are always hard to find because they are not actively browsing job boards. Social networks are much better for reaching the best people. Emply lets you post job ads easily and add incentives for people in your networks to spread the word, a sweepstake of Amazon gift cards among everyone that retweeted or shared your job posting, for example.

Who is Emply for?

Emply is used by small and medium businesses who want to hire the best but can't always afford to hire a full-service recruiter. These companies usually have reasonable social media presence, Emply just adds the automated incentives engine and sharing stats. The result is your job posting seen by more passive candidates you can dream of.
