How to Invite People to Your Talent Network

Driving top talent to your Consider Job Board requires personalized outreach. Apart from the promotional strategies we recommend you implement to generate traffic and attention to your job board, you can also reach out to potential candidates directly. 

If you know people in your community who might be a great fit with one of your portfolio companies, take the time to reach out to them with a personalized message. Encourage them to join your network by explaining briefly what your Talent Network is, how it works, and what the value is to them. When potential candidates join your network, they can visit your job board and signal interest in companies and opportunities, creating a talent pool for your companies to quickly fill open roles.
