Sourcing candidates is a very time-consuming method to acquire candidates, but it is also very rewarding. To get the best candidates, you need to reach out to them. While you still need to use your own knowledge to browse candidates and screen profiles, we have created TalentLyft Hire Extension to help you with importing them to your TalentLyft account. 

TalentLyft Hire Extension is a Google Chrome plugin that makes your sourcing fast and simple by allowing you to directly import candidate profiles from the most popular online networks like: 

  • Twitter
  • Linkedin
  • Stackoverflow
  • Github
  • AngelList
  • Codeproject and 
  • Dribbble.

To use TalentLyft Hire Extension, you need to have a TalentLyft account and add the extension to your Google Chrome web browser

You can find the extension in the Google Chrome web store or click on the Add to Chrome button, located in the Source module of TalentLyft.

After you have successfully added the extension to your Google Chrome browser, an icon will appear to the right of your Address bar in the browser. This is the TalentLyft Hire Extension icon and it is now a part of your Chrome browser.
