When we last left talent search engine TalentBin about six months ago, they were working on a variety of new projects including patent talent search and an iPhone app. They haven’t let up on new features, either.
The latest comes in the form of a Google Chrome plugin that will automatically link you to a dressed-down version of a person’s TalentBin profile when you bring up their account on social networks or even in some web-based applicant tracking systems. The plugin also works with Salesforce.com as well as on an ad hoc basis if you highlight and right click on any person’s name.
While the plugin is invaluable if you have an account with TalentBin (of course), it is also quite useful just as a standalone as I don’t have a TalentBin account.
