Identified is at the forefront of new recruiting technologies powered by the real-time web and social media information.

Identified, a data and analytics company focused on connecting companies with great talent, today announced that it has created the largest source of searchable, professional profiles available with one billion candidates. They are now officially available through the company’s lead product, Identified Recruit.

Identified Recruit is at the forefront of new recruiting technologies powered by the real-time web and social media information. Compared to LinkedIn, Identified Recruit’s professional information is not limited by its user base. While other new products specialize in technical hires or focus on a single data source, Identified Recruit is the only comprehensive offering that covers both multiple industries and multiple data sources.

Unlike solutions that rely on user-generated data, Identified is able to recognize and process professional data from nearly any public social media source while protecting privacy by anonymizing the information. The company offers an unprecedented database of professional information and can identify hard-to-find talent for industries that have difficulty finding qualified hires.

“The open web contains the most comprehensive, current professional information available, but until now companies have been forced to go to individual networks like LinkedIn to find talent,” said Brendan Wallace, co-founder and co-CEO of Identified. “With access to all of the web’s data, companies can find great talent on a scale never before possible.”

Over the past year, Identified has been testing the new recruiting technology in challenging markets like healthcare with a group of select charter clients, including UCSF Medical Center and Yale-New Haven Hospital systems. Identified Recruit quickly gained recognition among healthcare organizations as a key source of specialized talent for critical care roles. For example, Identified provides recruitable profiles for 47,648 Certified Nurses Aides while only 8,345 can be found on LinkedIn. For Surgical Technicians, Identified has over 3,502 profiles, where only 87 can be found on LinkedIn.

“Identified Recruit is the most innovative talent sourcing solution we have seen in years. Now, we are able to identify and recruit large pools of best-in-class talent in a way we wouldn’t be able to with any other site,” said Identified client Owen Sweeney, director of recruiting intelligence, L’OREAL. “The tool will revolutionize recruiting and provide an unprecedented return on our investment.”

Earlier this month, Identified announced the hire of Facebook’s manager of data science, Mohammad Sabah to direct and develop the expansion of the company’s core technology.
