Helping you automate your sourcing process.


Today we’re going to show you a free Chrome plugin available called TalentScan Lite. What this tool does, is it helps you find emails and phone numbers, as well as manage candidates for a job opening you’re trying to fill. It can be used with LinkedIn, as well as Gmail, GitHub, StackOverflow, XING, HeadHunter, Facebook, and more.

For the quick overview, we’re going to start out on Linkedin. (Side note, don’t stay signed in to LinkedIn unless you like being watched.) To find someone to check this out with and show how it works, we’re starting with a current connection. On a LinkedIn profile page, just click the icon to launch the extension, and it will show you the contact with their name and photo. You can expand it to view the contact info, emails, etc as well as add that contact to a vacancy you have set up in the tool.

Next, we show you what the full web version of the tool looks like. This is your dashboard where you can manage your vacancies as well as the contacts you’ve added. In the free version, you get one vacancy to work with at a time. As you can see, it gives you a little bit of everything in this tool to find and manage your candidates. If you decide to upgrade to the paid version, it’s reasonable at only 29/month.

All in all, TalentScan is a pretty good tool and is actually one we use. It can be kind of hit and miss, but it works!
