Using the Getro Talent Network

Getro Talent Network is a meaningful component to any platform talent strategy. It allows job seekers to express their interest in joining your talent network. By signing up, they can use your job board as a resource in their job search. Additionally, you are able to capture the organic interest of visitors to your job board so that you can direct these professionals to portfolio companies with relevant opportunities.

Here's how to use the Getro Talent Network:

1. A new Talent Network tab is added to your job board, which helps you capture organic interest from job seekers.

2. Job seekers complete a quick signup process, answering questions about their preferences and background. 

3. You'll have access to their information through the contact database and can filter the database by those who have completed the Talent Network signup

  • Talent sign ups are added directly to a networks Contacts database
  • If the person is already in the Contact database, we simply add the sign up info to the profile (we do not create a duplicate)
  • If the person is not already in the Contacts database, we add them after enriching their profile
  • Talent sign ups are unique to a network
  • This means talent must sign up to each network they want to join
  • If a Contact exists in multiple networks the talent sign up info is not shared across networks
  • Contacts can be filtered by those that have talent sign up info
  • Network admins have the option to deactivate the talent network if they do not want it on their job board
