About Hello Talent


Hello Talent is a cloud-based application tracking solution offered by TalentSoft for independent recruiters, recruiting agencies and small and midsize businesses. Key features include social profile aggregation, resume parsing, candidate ratings, data mapping and reporting.

The solution allows users to create candidate profiles by email. Recruiters can also create job opportunities and share them on the personalized career site to gather applications. Various tags, comments and @mentions can be added while evaluating profiles. Image parsing is supported. Specific folders and email templates can be designed basis dedicated jobs, profiles and skills.

Automated anonymization can be set up so that profiles without consent get automatically anonymized after a period of specific time. In addition, the solution allows users to manually remove a profile from the profile list, still showing non-personal data in reports such as the total count of profiles. Native Android and iOS applications are available as well.

The solution is available on a monthly or yearly subscription basis and support is provided via email.

Hello Talent - Great tool for building talent pools and managing the recruiting workflow

Hello Talent has evolved from a handy sourcing tool to a full-featured recruiting system which is easy to use and facilitates teamwork through the hiring process. Hello Talent's team approach to the recruitment process means it will be a good fit for many in-house recruiting teams, specialist executive search firms and those agencies who are more interested in managing the workflow and speeding up the recruitment process rather than measuring KPIs and commissions.

Pros

Hello Talent is a great tool for quickly building, sharing and qualifying a talent pool. If you are sourcing talent online - through LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook and other social media - the Chrome Extension lets you quickly capture profiles which can be shared with sourcing colleagues, recruiters or hiring managers.

Ease of use is a key selling point for Hello Talent and pretty much anyone can get started with the product with little or no training. Anyone who has used a traditional Applicant Tracking System will appreciate the streamlined approach; when you are working at pace to a deadline, you don't want your tools slowing you down.

Using Hello Talent sourcers can work with recruiters and hiring managers to build talent pools for qualification and processing through the hiring process. Everyone on the hiring team has visibility over the status of each candidate and the approach to the hiring workflow is far superior to most applicant tracking systems.

Hello Talent works well for single recruiters, larger agencies with teams of sourcers working with consultants to build talent pools and in-house recruiting teams. It would also work well for executive search firms.

Cons

In terms of usability and functionality, there's not much to dislike about Hello Talent. However, as with all SaaS products, you are introducing another data processor to the mix, so you'll have to do your own due diligence and ensure that you are compliant with current data protection legislation.

Hello Talent does handle GDPR compliance, but this will need some configuration and some housekeeping to maintain.

For agencies used to monitoring individual consultant performance, it might be a struggle to get used to the team approach to recruitment that Hello Talent encourages. If your focus is on KPIs and billings, you might struggle to get the kind of management information reporting from Hello Talent that you might see in some other, more traditional, Applicant Tracking Systems.

There is a CV parsing option, but this is only available with the Enterprise version. If you are still attracting applicants from traditional job board ads and mining CV libraries, this may be an issue as most applicant tracking systems will include a CV parser in the standard product.

I'm happy with applicant tracking system hellotalent

HelloTalent saves me time when sourcing and sometimes finds me by itself additional info that I would miss on candidates, through their social sourcing. It's worth paying for it on top of Linkedin recruiter because of the additional functionality that it provides.

Pros

Easy to use, adds profiles with a couple of clicks thanks to its Chrome plug-in, easy to rank candidates. I'm OK paying their monthly fee even though Linkedin Recruiter offers some of the same functionality, because HelloTalent is more agile at saving profiles, ranking them, saving my notes on each candidate and finding me additional social media on those candidates.

Cons

Occasionally they've had downtimes during working hours, but I give them a pass because they're a startup and still perform better than the alternatives that I saw.

Nice and easy to use candidate management system with a very good UI design

Candidate management

Pros

Very simple candidate management system. Good capability so I easily track the progress of my candidates with different statuses and all color coded. Profiles are automatically populated. Integrates with Slack for team communication. Ability to collaborate with colleagues. Tagging capability by skills as well as job profiles. Ability to email from the system and communicate straight from mail client. Very nice feel to it and you will get used quickly to navigation and workflow.

Cons

Lacking some functionality when doing mail campaigns, but it's under development, so should be available soon. Doesn't have client side which is the biggest downside for us.

Great for Virtual Teams!

Overall I was very pleased with Hello Talent and recommend them highly.

Pros

What I liked most about Hello Talent:
- The interface made collaborating with my virtual team a breeze! Being able to see what user did what activity and the ability to make notes and tag other users really helped.
- Straight forward and easy to use.
- Attractive interface

Cons

What I liked least about Hello Talent:
- The only negatives I found were really more user error - when you have numerous people on a single platform it's bound to happen!

Hello Talent makes professionals happy :)

ive been using HT ( hello Talent) for almost a year now and it has been fun all the way. Since they have started they have not been sitting down for a minute. The tool keeps getting better without any noticing bugs.

Pros

its easy to use for me , but more important my customers, i do not have to explain how the tool works because of the easy and simple to use interface.

Cons

... i does not do all the work for me .. but other than that i am highly possitive.
It is faster than any other ATS i ve worked with because it is not a complete ats.

Amazing collaboration tool for Talent Sourcers

Ever since we first witness HelloTalent in late 2015, we kept a close eye on it as a product that almost magically catered to all of the pain points we had in our workflow. 12 months down the road, and full 8 months after it was adopted by my entire team, we cannot really think of going back - the past seems very cumbersome in comparison.

Pros

Ease of use: One-click interface to add candidates to your pipeline
Great UI
Facilitates hiring managers' involvement in the process
Eliminated the need of using cumbersome Excel files and/or excessive back-and-forth emails
