Introducing “Social Evidence”
When Jamey Jeff and Scott Rothrock first reached out to get my feedback on their start-up, RemarkableHire, I was intrigued. After all, as a recruiter, talent acquisition leader and now consultant, I’ve lived and managed the same woes that drove Jamey and Scott to found the company–measuring talent by a traditional resume doesn’t work.
Coining the term “social evidence,” Jamey and Scott have created a tool to help recruiters and hiring managers find and evaluate talent through the “collective voice of the crowd,” providing a proof point behind candidates’ knowledge and expertise. The tool crawls sites like GitHub and Quora for actual evidence of skills and expertise allowing recruiters and hiring managers to pinpoint target candidates quickly.
