When Barbara Taylor started her own recruiting firm, Vista Talent, she knew she needed a marketplace. Although she had used other marketplaces she wondered if there was a better solution. She was frustrated with how other marketplaces accept or decline recruiters before even looking at their candidates. If she wasn’t accepted by an employer the only way to submit a matching candidate was by paying a fee. Then, If the employer still didn’t accept her candidate — the marketplace kept her money anyway! There had to be a better option.
While searching for an ATS solution Barbara was introduced to Scout by a popular ATS firm. She knew right away she had found her marketplace match. She appreciates the way Scout matches her search firm to employers based on her history. Plus she doesn’t have to pay to submit a candidate in Scout to any position or employer
According to Barbara, that’s just the start of the benefits she’s enjoying. “With Scout, you find real opportunities. I see jobs I can work, and I can start working them on day one. There are no hoops to jump through.”
Barbara also notes that the responsiveness from both employers and account managers on Scout help her do her job more effectively and efficiently.
In the short time Barbara has been using Scout, she has already made three hires with different companies and has two more in the pipeline. “There are so many opportunities on Scout, sometimes it’s hard to juggle all of them. There are at least ten jobs that I am actively working on right now.” Barbara sees such value in her current marketplace that she structures her day around it. “I’ve made Scout a part of my daily workflow. I get my coffee, open Scout and find jobs to work on. I can focus on finding candidates, not finding jobs to work on. It saves me a lot of time.”
As an independent recruiter, Barbara says it’s nice to feel like someone has her back. “I view Scout as a business partner to really help my company to grow and prosper. It is an extension of my business.”
