Symphony Talent now using Google Cloud Talent Solution to power career site job search, just like College Recruiter does

Posted December 05, 2018 by

Ever have one of those, “Aha!”, moments where suddenly a puzzle that seemed to be missing a piece to became complete? That’s how I felt a little earlier today.

Peter Clayton of TotalPicture forwarded to me a press release that he received from our friends over at Symphony Talent. They were announcing that they are now live as a Google Cloud Talent Solution partner, under which Symphony Talent will use Google’s search technology — the best in the world — to power the job search on the websites of its employer clients. Ah, now I get why Symphony Talent’s chief executive officer Roopesh Nair will be a panelist at our College Recruiting Bootcamp on AI at Google. We were very happy to have him fly across the country from New York City to San Francisco to be a panelist at our event. And the event looks to be a tremendous hit with about 200, senior, talent acquisition leaders as attendees, presenters, and panelists combined with a superb venue and Peter’s recording and live streaming, but that’s still a long way for Roopesh to travel. Given today’s announcement from Symphony Talent, however, it now makes perfect sense. Our event will be a great opportunity for him to talk about how and why Symphony Talent decided to use Google’s AI-powered search technology, which College Recruiter believes delivers more relevant search results at a lower cost than anything else on the planet.

College Recruiter’s site is powered by the same technology, and we couldn’t be happier with the technology or the service that we’ve received from Google. To our friends at Symphony Talent, we say, “Welcome aboard and congratulations on making yet another wise decision on behalf of your employer clients”.

Here is the press release:

NEW YORK, December 5, 2018 – Symphony Talent, a leading talent marketing solutions provider, today announced its partnership with Google Cloud Talent Solution to provide its clients with enhanced search capabilities to attract, hire and engage high-quality talent faster.

Google Cloud Talent Solution provides a combination of search APIs that leverages machine learning and Google’s learnings in search to produce better search performance and conversion by delivering high-quality results to job seekers far beyond the limitations of typical keyword-based methods. This integration provides candidates with the same superior search experience they have come to expect from Google. The seamless integration of Google Cloud Talent Solution with the career site job content of Symphony Talent’s clients will help return enhanced search results for candidates that account for the role level, jargon, abbreviations and acronyms, and misspellings. In addition, the job search capability leverages machine learning, so the results will continue to improve over time.

“Our partnership with Google Cloud Talent Solution delivers a significant opportunity for our clients to optimize their candidate and recruiter experiences,” said Roopesh Nair, president and CEO, Symphony Talent. “The synchronicity of Google’s industry-leading search capabilities with our data-driven, experience-focused solutions will empower global brands to redefine how they connect with quality talent.”

Symphony Talent has collaborated with Google to deliver enhanced search capabilities and advance the candidate experiences for its portfolio of global clients, such as UCLA Health and Hilton Grand Vacations.

According to Nair, the benefits of Symphony Talent’s seamless integration with Google Cloud Talent Solution include:

  • More accurate results and a shorter funnel for candidates

  • Enhanced candidate and recruiter experiences

  • Higher apply rates and decreased drop-off

  • Increased candidate conversion

  • Better fit candidates

Symphony Talent is an alpha partner for future Google Cloud Talent Solution enhancements, including the profile APIs. This partnership and shared vision between Symphony Talent and Google Cloud Talent Solution will also allow their teams to collaborate and further advance the experiences, job search function, candidate job recommendations and the recruiter profile search on Symphony Talent’s platform.
