Circular vs LinkedIn Recruiter: Revolutionizing Tech Recruitment

Circular vs LinkedIn Recruiter: Revolutionizing Tech Recruitment

As a tech recruiter, you're constantly on the hunt for the best talent in a highly competitive market. You've probably been using LinkedIn Recruiter for years, and it's served you well. But what if I told you there's a tool out there that's specifically designed for tech recruitment, with features that could dramatically improve your hiring success rate? Discover Circular.

The Tech Recruitment Landscape: A New Challenger Emerges

LinkedIn Recruiter has long been the go-to platform for many recruiters. It's familiar, it's widespread, and it gets the job done. But in the fast-paced world of tech recruitment, "getting the job done" isn't always enough. You need a tool that understands the unique challenges of tech hiring and offers solutions tailored to your needs.

That's where Circular comes in. Let's break down how these two platforms compare, and why Circular might just be the game-changer you've been looking for.

Candidate Engagement: Quality Over Quantity

One of the biggest frustrations for recruiters is low response rates. You spend hours crafting the perfect message, only to be met with silence. Sound familiar?

  • LinkedIn Recruiter: While it boasts a vast user base, response rates can be disappointingly low. Many users are passive candidates who aren't actively job seeking, or their profiles aren't up to date.
  • Circular: Here's where we shine. Our platform boasts an impressive 60% candidate response rate. How? Our candidates are actively seeking new opportunities, often referred by other recruiters. They're primed and ready to engage.

Think about it: Wouldn't you rather reach out to 100 highly engaged candidates than 1000 who might not even be looking?

Candidate Quality: Informed Decisions, Better Matches

In tech recruitment, having up-to-date, relevant information about candidates is crucial.

  • LinkedIn Recruiter: Profiles can be outdated, and you often lack insight into a candidate's current job-seeking status or recent experiences.
  • Circular: Our platform provides real-time, recruiter-verified information. Candidates on Circular have often been through recent interview processes, and we have comments from recruiters who've interacted with them. This means you're not shooting in the dark – you have valuable insights to guide your outreach and interview process.

Imagine knowing that a candidate you're interested in just completed an interview process elsewhere but wasn't selected. That's valuable information that could make your outreach more timely and relevant.

Pricing: Flexibility and Value

Budget is always a consideration, especially for growing teams or agencies.

  • LinkedIn Recruiter: The basic model starts at €170 per month, per user. That means if you have a team of five, you're looking at €850 per month, minimum.
  • Circular: Our Pay-Per-Job model is just €150 per month, per job post. And here's the kicker – your entire team can access and work on that job post. For a team of five working on three job posts, that's €450 per month – nearly half the cost of LinkedIn Recruiter.

But it's not just about the cost. It's about the value. With Circular, you're not paying for access to a general professional network. You're investing in a platform specifically designed for tech recruitment, with features and candidates tailored to your needs.

The Tech Recruitment Edge: Specialized Tools for Specialized Needs

LinkedIn Recruiter is a great general tool, but tech recruitment isn't a general field. It requires specialized knowledge, up-to-date information, and a deep understanding of the rapidly evolving tech landscape.

Circular is built from the ground up to meet these needs. From our curated pool of tech talent to our recruiter-verified information, every feature is designed to make your job as a tech recruiter easier and more effective.

Smart Matching: The Power of AI in Tech Recruitment

One of the most time-consuming aspects of recruitment is sifting through countless profiles to find the right match. This is where Circular truly shines, offering a game-changing approach to candidate matching and job visibility.

Intelligent Matching Algorithm

  • LinkedIn Recruiter: While it offers search filters, you're still often left with a large pool of candidates to manually sort through. Many may not actually fit your specific requirements.
  • Circular: Our advanced matching algorithm does the heavy lifting for you. It analyzes the requirements of your job posting and recommends candidates who truly fit the bill. This isn't just keyword matching – our algorithm understands the nuances of tech roles and skills, ensuring you get quality matches, not just quantity.

Targeted Job Visibility

  • LinkedIn Recruiter: Your job posts are visible to a wide audience, which can lead to a flood of unqualified applications that you need to filter through.
  • Circular: We take a smarter approach. Your job posting is only shown to candidates who meet the specified requirements. This means that when a candidate applies, you know they're already a potential fit, saving you countless hours of initial screening.

Time-Saving Benefits

Imagine this scenario: You post a job for a Senior React Developer with experience in fintech. With LinkedIn, you might get hundreds of applications, many from junior developers or those without relevant industry experience. With Circular:

  1. Our algorithm immediately identifies candidates in our pool who match your specific requirements.
  2. Only these qualified candidates see your job posting.
  3. When you receive applications, you know they're from candidates who align with your needs.
  4. You also get recommendations of passive candidates who fit your criteria (if you decide to try our PRO Plan).

The result? You spend less time filtering and more time engaging with promising candidates. It's not just about finding a needle in a haystack – it's about Circular presenting you with a curated selection of needles from the start.

Making the Switch: It's Easier Than You Think

Change can be daunting, especially when it comes to core tools in your recruitment stack. But here's the thing – you don't have to make a complete switch overnight.

Why not start by posting one job on Circular? For €150, you can test drive our platform, experience our high engagement rates, and see for yourself how our specialized approach can transform your tech recruitment process.

The Bottom Line: Elevate Your Tech Recruitment Game

In the world of tech recruitment, standing still means falling behind. While LinkedIn Recruiter has its merits, Circular offers a specialized, cost-effective, and highly efficient alternative that's tailor-made for tech recruiters like you.
