HootRecruit provides curated passive candidate lists based on the details you share with us, all through an easy-to-use form. Here’s how it works:

1. Let us know the specifics of your hiring needs via our intake form. The more you tell us about your ideal hire, the better the results will be.

2. Next, HootRecruit works its magic to get you a curated list of candidates. Using a combination of technology and our personal recruiting expertise, you will receive results within two business days. We’ll include the candidate’s name, available contact information, and work experience based on your priorities.

3. Lastly, reach out to the candidates directly through HootRecruit using our easy-to-use email campaign builder, and get your role filled! 🎉

A passive candidate is someone who is not actively seeking a new job opportunity. If presented with a good opportunity, they might be interested in a change and join your team!

Did you know 70% of the talent base is passive? That means companies are missing out on most candidates if they only rely on posting the job position and hoping that qualified people apply.

We think that’s silly, so we’ve flipped the script. Why wait for your next hire to find you when you can go out and find your next hire?

Passive candidates tend to be a little harder to engage because they’re not actively in job search mode. With the right messaging and opportunity though, you never know who you might convince to work with you!
