Social JaraTech Technologies was born in October 2009, with a clear purpose: to be the professional search solution on social networks.
The key to success of any business is the ability to search for the best talent and business contacts suitable for your business. The tools used today are quite poor: employment sites and commercial databases. Both solutions lack the dynamism of the market, are not up to date and also lack sufficient volume of people to meet the demand of enterprises.
This leads to a situation that continues even today: 80% of companies recruit using their direct contacts, and only 1% use headhunters. Starting in 2008 social networks expanded globally, growing exponentially every year and became the main tool of branding as an employer.
The "community" has turned to social networks as an alternative to traditional channels, stimulated by another factor: the crisis, which requires more effective and cheaper solutions. In just 3 years in Spain, job portals have lost 40% of their regular customers to social networks "professionals" like LinkedIn. These social networks have proved more effective than job boards, especially in certain profiles, but at a cost similar to that used in traditional media, or even higher, as there is a technological and cultural gap in training talent acquisition teams and the risk of error is also greater.
So, how does a company work in its talent acquisition strategy? Does it maintain traditional channels? Should there be a team of recruiters that use social media turning them into something like a community manager? And if you do this, will the complexity of working with multiple networks compensate the results?
JaraTech wants to solve a real problem, anywhere in the world: find the talent that a company needs to grow and develop. All this in a simple manner and without the risks associated with working in complex social networks. We developed a unique technology that can broaden the subnets that make up social networks, discovering the paths we need to contact professionals, in the end facilitating contact.
We invite you to test our solution and follow us on our networks on Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook where we will try to give you support in all search processes.
