Now – get real feedback with Talentag

We’v e been talking a lot recently. We’ve had conversations with lots of users, social media specialists and just really clever people and asked for feedback on Talentag. Many have said that badges and tags are great for many things but they don’t give you real feedback on how you are perceived.

We did a little bit of home reading and are now taking tags a little bit further. Instead of just giving and receiving verbal tags you now have a ‘taggregator’ (not a scientific term, yet)┬áthat lets you compare how different people perceive you, and how this differs from your self-image. It’s based on Johari window which is a cognitive psychology tool that’s been tried and tested for decades. Basically it gives you 56 words that you and other people rate as matching to you or not, and which produces a nice overview as a result. You can also add your own words eg. ask whether people think you are entrepreneurial, or whether you look live Elvis.

May I warmly recommend to try it out – just a word of warning that it’s somewhat addictive. You can start by answering questions about yourself and letting others give their view later, or by plunging in and tagging a couple of friends to start with.

Would love to hear your thoughts and feedback!

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.
