Charlie App Review Recruiting ToolsEver schedule a meeting with a candidate only to realize you have no idea who this person is or why you scheduled a meeting in the first place? (Please tell me it is not just me!) Don’t worry, the Charlie App has you covered.  I love Charlie. Seriously, it is one of those tools that once you try you have no idea how you ever lived without it.

I am in demo meetings all day.  In the morning, Charlie sends me a daily email telling me who I am meeting with and sends a link to the briefing. On the briefing, I can see shared connections, the last tweet the sent, their company news, big personal news inferred interests and hobbies and more.  This tool can be a game changer for recruiters. Not only does it save time by doing all the research for you but it also helps you not look like an idiot because you forgot who you were talking to. Do you have a team interview scheduled?  Send the entire team a briefing so that they know some discussion points they can use.

I love how the app is so clean.  Although it gives you a ton of information, it is organized in such a way that you are not overwhelmed by it. The tagline for Charlie is “Impress anyone you meet.” With Charlie, I think you can.
