share jobs. add rewards. find great people.

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 app will go the way of the spammy virtual badges like Pass a Drink. But if the app is used as it’s intended, it could be a nice, quick way to see where your strengths are and to let friends and coworkers know theirs. Wouldn’t it be nice to wake up and see that your project manager thinks you’re ultra Creative?

So Talentag will help to understand who’s who on Facebook from professional point of view. Think of it as fitting LinkedIn into Facebook. As such it nicely complements the Emply offering. In the future highly rated Talentag users can opt in to receive job offers from Emp.ly advertisers, or they can choose to earn rewards for finding suitable job offers for their friends.

We’ve been live for a couple of days: number of badges sent has been nicely increasing, there’s been positive feedback and some useful observations. Please keep the feedback coming either as comments here or on Twitter.

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.
