A friend (and a client) of mine at a large global consulting firm is looking to partner with startups /products /experts innovating in using big-data and social media to identify and source talent. They are especially interested in technologies that can identify folks who are not actively looking. They are industry and skill agnostic, but would love to learn from innovations in the tech industry and see how they can be applied to other industries.

Do you know any startups that are at the forefront of using big data and social media for recruiting? 

Forget about “build it and they will come.” Products without scalable distribution channels will fail to gain traction. Instead of hiring an expensive marketing team, take this course to master SEO, content marketing, retargeting, viral loops, email marketing, and sales funnel optimization.

Hi Jagmeet! Ive recently accepted a role as the VP of Biz Dev at ModernGuild and we currently have a very progressive model we are executing and actually launched with a global consulting firm for talent as we would love to have a deeper exploratory conversation as our results have been exciting. Thanks for putting this out there and opening up the opportunity to connect to the FD community.
