A Search is a collection of all the various attributes you wish to have in your ideal candidate. Findem searches over 700 million enriched profiles with over 1 million unique attributes to provide you with results that match as closely as possible.
To find matching candidates for a role, start by creating a Search. You can build your Search from scratch or mirror a LinkedIn profile.
How It Works
- On the Search page of your account, click the blue +New Search button.
- Find the What role(s) are you looking for? field and start typing the job title you're hiring for. A dropdown menu of close matches will appear as you type.
Select the job title from the dropdown that matches what you're looking for. Titles listed under the Curated by Findem category have received special attention from the Findem team to give them a highly accurate set of matching profiles.
If you don't find the job title you're hiring for, contact your Customer Success Manager, or reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. We're continuously expanding the list of job titles, and we welcome your input.
- Type in one or more locations where you wish to hire candidates. Select each location from the dropdown.
To customize the search radius, click the distance in the location question, and choose your preferred distance from the dropdown.
You can also find candidates by timezone instead of the location. To do this, click the Timezone tab, and select one or more timezones where you wish to search.
- Click Find to view all the candidates in your preferred areas. Next, you'll have a chance to refine your Search further using additional attributes.
