In a new series on RecruitingTools, each week I’ll be featuring a newly discovered Chrome Extension – breaking down the features and use cases for sourcing and recruiting experts. These short and sweet tool breakdowns will give you a sneak peek into the latest and greatest Chrome extensions I’m using to source right now.

What is Hiretual?

Hiretual is a Chrome Extension that shows you more information on candidates you find in LinkedIn. This tool is great. Especially  if you have found a candidate in Linkedin and want to know more. Hireatual reveals things such as like compensation, likely fit, expertise, and relativeness.


Hiretual Features:

  • Free Chrome Extension
  • Candidate Ranking
  • Compensation Data (When Available.)

Overall, I recommend you give this one a try soon while it is free.
