TalentBin by Monster is a best-of-breed applicant sourcing and applicant tracking software that allows each company to create its own private TalentBin populated by employees' social contacts.
When a company signs up, recruiters send all employees a unique link to their TalentBin. Employees then connect their social profiles to the company’s TalentBin, which pulls all their contacts’ employment information and aggregates it into one database. Recruiters can search this database using the product’s guided search feature, narrowing down candidates by particular skills and locations.
TalentBin also helps recruiters organize the hiring process, allowing them to create pipelines for specific job requisitions and give hiring managers access to view candidate resumes. Additionally, recruiters can view all communication history with candidates, as well any notes they might have taken on each candidate’s individual profile.

Great support team. They can help you find resumes if needed and they do monitor your usage to practically reach out with support interventions.
Data quality is off on some social feed based skills. most of the the time, highly rated skills on the site profiles are not necessarily true when I check the full social profile on LinkedIn.
They need to look at dice social search. I think that product provides a better data quality and phone numbers for candidates in most cases.

Layout is decent and concept is good.Follow up is nice when you first use it. Though having one person that trains you on it, and one person that supports the day to day is a little odd.
Constant follow up from Account Managers for TalentBin, they are there to "help" but really have no idea about the market or the technology that we are trying to recruit for. I also heavily dislike the email feature in the tool as its very time consuming and not very user friendly. Just a lot of steps in general to get to a candidate.
Give it a least two weeks to get used to it. But you will find you have to put a lot of time into getting your searches started and reaching out to candidates. Quite a few things that are still not in TBs "wheelhouse"

I think this product is innovative, different and new
Database needs improvements, since there are a lot of random people. No contact information
I think you should source people better, find contact information

I like the ability to search people from open web. We use it for search for our IT Roles and it helps sometimes. I like that I have real e-mails.
not reliable search, it says in header that he is a "developer" but then i open linkedin and he is a "painter"
Be as much specific as you can in your search. Check their profiles before writing to them

Additional place to find candidate other than LinkedIn
Floods my email with updates on how many searches I preform and tasks that I need to complete. I think the automated outreach emails are a good, but think you lose a personal touch with the candidates. I had a candidate who actually called me to tell me that he responded to my message, but he is still receiving messages to see if he was interested and asked to be removed from my list. I have had candidate responded after receiving multiple message only to say that they are not interested.
Would be easier if you could some how integrate it with LinkedIn so you can have all of your candidates in one place.
