the market of passive job seekers is three times larger than that of active job seekers.

Active sourcing has never been so fast and easy

Conventional approaches such as “post and pray” simply no longer cut it when there’s a severe shortage of skilled workers. What you need these days are new, proactive methods. What you need is active sourcing.

We at onlyfy can help you with that. Gain access to the largest talent pool in the German-speaking world with more than 21 million profiles and take advantage of state-of-the-art technology to approach the right talents at the right time – quickly and with ease.

Find your ideal hire quickly and easily

Active sourcing helps speed up one of the key time-consuming activities in the recruitment process: waiting for the right talents to apply to the company.

TalentManager lets you filter and search through over 21 million potential candidates on XING – and then contact them directly.

Coupled with targeted recommendations and notifications about suitable talents, you can therefore make your ideal hire even faster.

Search (and find) in the right place

The success of active sourcing hinges on the quality of the talent database that you’re looking through.

On XING you can reach talents of all ages – from all professional groups and with different seniority levels.

TalentManager gives you exclusive access to this network. You are sure to find the talent you are looking for, and for every position.

Approach talents successfully

Although one in two talents prefers the direct approach, you also need to find the right words at the right time.

The smart templates in TalentManager let you send messages that are personalised despite being automatically generated.

Information on your talents’ desire to switch jobs also guarantees that you’ll catch them at just the right moment.

Make a note of interesting talents for later

A talent pool allows you to simply keep candidates in mind who don’t fully meet your requirements at the moment, meaning that you might have your perfect match for a future vacancy at your fingertips already.

TalentManager Pro enables you to create your own individual talent pool and get your hands on these suitable talents as soon as a future vacancy opens up, so you can fill it in no time at all!
