Need an Alternative to Internet Sourcing or Agencies? Mine your Oracle Data!

Candidate profiles and applications submitted to your applicant tracking system offer a potential treasure trove of qualified candidates for your organization’s current and future positions.

Talent Acquisition personnel using Human Resources Management applications like Oracle’s iRecruitment and PeopleSoft Recruiting Solution can integrate extensions to perform intelligent searches for candidates: talent mining.

This intelligent search solution does more than a simple keyword search which only matches exact text entered in a search with the text in an applicant’s profile or resume. Intelligent search can take basic search criteria or advanced search parameters and then determine relationships and patterns in the data searched for. For instance, a standard keyword search in your application for “DBA” will return results only for candidates with the letters “D-B-A” in their profile or resume. An intelligent search tool will create and search for patterns related to DBA like “Data Base Administration”, “Oracle Database”, “10g” and more.

The intelligent search tool can prove to be a valuable investment to your Talent Acquisition software toolkit. Being able to better source existing candidates internally may reduce your firm’s reliance (and budget) on job posting boards and external agencies.

Synerphase has partnered with the leading Oracle intelligent search solution provider to help you implement talent mining/intelligent search into your iRecruitment or PeopleSoft Recruiting Solution environment. Contact us to find out more!
