Whototalkto – the insider’s job search

You know of this blue chip company that you would love to work with and you know that it would have been much easier for you to get a job there if only you knew someone inside the blue chip company or know of someone who can give you the right contacts within the company or give you the inside scoop. But you don’t know anyone at the blue chip company.

In come whototalkto. Whototalkto is the first job referral exchange that brings job seekers together so that everyone can share and exchange the inside scoop.

As a recruiter, this concept did strike me in the past and I am glad whototalkto has come up with a system that is simply very cool and neat. Kudos to you guys!

From the recruiter community perspective, this is a beautiful way of exchanging resources and contacts – a truly give and take policy.

Sometime, we have this exclusive job request from the client/hiring managers and you wish someone could help you provide the right referral or leads.

John is a recruiter with XYZ Pte Ltd and has a client with whom he has an exclusive search arrangement. XYZ gives John a requirement for a Kondor+ Business Analyst. John does not have any K+ candidates and does not know where to find one. John however has very strong network in local Singaporean SAP. John decides to post his dilemma in whototalkto.

Joe works for ABC Pte Ltd and knows someone in Dubai with K+ experience. Joe is also working with IBM client and is in urgent need of Chinese speaking SAP consultants for a project in Shanghai. He came across John’s request and responded.

John and Joe met up at whototalkto and exchanged their referrals and for both it’s a win-win situation indeed.

Some more examples of job referrals:

  • I am currently working at Charterhouse. I can tell you lots about the best way to get hired here if you request more info about this referral.
  • My roommate is a consultant with Standard Chartered Singapore. If you're looking for good permanent banking jobs he can put in a good word for you. I'll give you his email address.
  • My husband is a consultant at IBM. He can refer you to his boss. I'll give you his email address and you can chat with him.
