A Talent Advocate is the guide for engineers while they go through the Hired platform. They are experienced in the ways of navigating the technology jobs market. They provide guidance on how to interview, what to prepare for, and they make sure at the end of the day the final offers are something that the candidate understands and is ultimately happy with. They are the experts that engineers can lean on.
Our next Talent Advocate should have a firm understanding of not just tech, but start-up recruiting and the crazy demand for engineers locally. You'll be working with around 80-100 candidates a month (hand delivered by our awesome marketing and curation team) to guide them in our marketplace setting. A Talent Advocate does not simply care about getting someone a job but improving every detail that goes into finding an awesome opportunity.
In the first few weeks Talent Advocates will be trained on not just how to document things in Salesforce but how to leverage our tools and touch points to work with a large number of candidates all actively searching. After ramping up with more candidates they will quickly learn about client needs, candidate nuances, important value adds and be ready to work at scale. Talent Advocates will know when to push, when to get a revised offer and generally be a kick ass consultant to anyone searching for an engineering job.
Talent Advocates are not graded on endless metrics and work towards team hiring goals and creating the best job search experience.
