CareerXroads Cool Tools for Executive Search

cxr-cooltools-executiveJust one of the takeaways from a recent full day with Executive Search leaders hosted by EY was a list of the most prominent tools in play this year when looking for and engaging leadership talent.  At our 88th CareerXroads Colloquium we vetted, discussed and whittled down (yes, "whittled" - see what we did there?) that list to the following 26 "cool tools".  Categories such as Assessment, Data, Marketing, Sourcing, Video and more were defined to help our members sort and rank each product.

Included as some of the most used services by executive search teams, and which should come as no surprise to many, were the likes of Hogan, Gallup, HireVue and SuccessFactors.  Lesser known and newer solutions that these leaders are finding successful include Entelo, HiringSolved, Textio and several others.

After logging in, CareerXroads members are able to view the complete list below that includes the product/suite title, a direct link to the services page, its "claim to fame" and our new CareerXroads categorization of that tool or service.  Members can also continue the discussions and evaluations here on
