August 8, 2022

The Challenge

Finding the Right Talent

  • CloudFlare was looking for diverse talent.
  • They were burning through LinkedIn In-Mails sending close to 2.5K to make 1 hire.
  • On average, 90% of the candidates found through LinkedIn didn’t pass through the first round of interviews which exacerbated the problem.

“Ease of the pitch, knowing candidates are active, pre-vetted candidates, we know will go far. Information of deal size, dept. SALARY. Many candidates on LinkedIn aren’t committed to the interview process and drop out—this is not the case with Betts.”
