of Social Media recruiting is here and now
The future of Social Media recruiting is here and now
Signal™ is a SaaS, web-based talent relationship management (a.k.a. TRM) application that monitors changes in online behavior of people who you want to follow, and provides you with relevant real-time information about which people are seeking employment on a scale ranging from passive to active.
Our technology serves two main purposes:
- Alert recruiters when it becomes an ideal time to contact prospects about potential employment opportunities
- Inform HR about current employees who are actively or passively seeking new opportunities outside their company
We have already secured more than $1M USD in capital, and now we are in the process of raising our official Series “A” round. However, we don’t want our momentum to slow down. We are looking to our clients and partners to support us while we’re raising our next round of capital, and by supporting us now you will have special privileges.

What you can expect from our technology after you sign up:
The already good:
1. Your talent database will be up to date all the time
Signal is tracking all online behavior patterns of the people you are interested in, and will continuously and automatically update their records in your database.
2. Signal will notify you so you don't have to waste time dealing with social “noise”
While people have a tremendous amount of online social media activity, Signal focuses specially on their behaviors that are most relevant for the purposes of recruitment and talent management. As a result, you don’t have to sift through all the noise of social media recruitment to get at the most relevant information. Signal does this automatically for you, for as long as you are interested in tracking the person’s activities.
3. One click adding
Easily upload your existing candidate or employee database into Signal, or you can add new profiles simply by using the bookmark feature. Signal also allows you to segment your talent communities for more intuitive interaction or to provide specialized reporting. For example, you can create unique talent pools or puddles for current employees, prospective candidates, company followers, people who clicked on the job advertisement link, or a limitless number of other logical or deliberate profile segments.
4. Already compatible with many social media sources, many more are coming
Currently, you can track, add, and combine profiles from LinkedIn, Twitter, Google+, Xing, Facebook*, and About.me. Signal will yield better results as you add more social profiles you want to track for each individual. We are constantly adding new social networks to our supported list; currently we are working on Viadeo and Foursquare.
5. Engage your colleagues to help you grow your talent communities
Signal offers functionality that will enable your friends, colleagues, or employees to track people’s profiles, and based on their respective user rights or segmentation, you can route their tracked referrals to unique talent pools. You can even gamify the talent community building process or create a competition within your existing organization for who can refer and track the most number of relevant profiles.
The (not yet so) good:
We are in the process of finalizing Signal’s built-in profile assessment and sourcing functionality. These upcoming features will enable recruiters to turn on automatic candidate sourcing based on predefined competency criteria or even on the basis of personality features. Just imagine the future, the most time-consuming and costly tasks of candidate identification and sourcing will be automated by Signal so recruiters and HR managers can focus their efforts on more strategic activities.

How the funding will be used
Currently Signal is in beta, but with your additional funding we will be able to continue developing:
- A redesigned user experience, which is the interface to the core Signal engine
- Connect Signal to more data sources to help you cast the widest net of information about the people you want to follow
- Finalize building assessment and automatic sourcing into Signal so that you will be automatically alerted about ideal candidates and the ideal time to contact them
The story about how Signal™ was conceived
The idea for Signal™ was birthed in 2012 as an outcome of the #tru event “hackathon.” During this (un)conference style event, Recruiters and HR industry leaders were given an opportunity to think outside the box and suggest a tool that might make recruitment and talent management more effective or more efficient, or both. Their idea was presented to the track participants but only Joberate took on the challenge of creating a prototype. The talented team of Joberate engineers worked around the clock to build a working prototype version of what is today Signal, and presented the core functionality on the next day to the event participants. The core of the Signal engine, and its functionality received numerous accolades so Joberate decided to invest significant resources to continue developing Signal into a commercially viable product.
