Top talent exists in your ATS...right now. However, it's easy to look past candidates that aren't on your current radar. With Herefish, you can automate and nurture relationships with top talent build a solid pool of top performers. Top talent could be 2nd or 3rd place candidates that weren't selected by the hiring manager or a A+ candidate you want to place someday (soon!).

Why nurturing top talent is useful

  • Stay in touch with A+ candidates
  • Reduces top candidates from looking elsewhere
  • Automatic safety net if candidates fall through the cracks during the recruiting process

Key triggers & actions

The trigger to enter a top talent campaign is usually a status or custom field in your ATS. For example, triggering criteria could be the following:

  • Candidate rating is Gold, A+ or Silver
  • Status is active

For example, a 'touching base' email can be followed up by a call task 6 days later. With Herefish, there really isn't a limit to the automation you could deploy to build better relationships with top performers.
