Frequently Asked Questions

What makes SkillSurvey Source different from other online passive candidate sources?

Because a candidate’s references and referrals typically come from the same industry or job area of your candidates, this gives hiring managers a new source of targeted talent. With a growing list of high-quality candidate leads, you can spend more time working on those hard-to-fill positions and less time posting to various job boards or sifting through resumes.

How up to date is the passive candidate information?

It is the most up to date information available. When references and referrals receive a request to participate in either SkillSurvey ReferenceTM or SkillSurvey Source they are asked to personally confirm their role and contact information.

Can recruiters engage with passive candidates?

Recruiters can stay connected by sending out communications and alerts about new positions to passive candidates who have opted in.
