Connect The Dots is an amazing tool for recruiting. Just like LinkedIn you can search for people based on job title or company. The big difference...
#1 You'll often surface more first degree contacts
Most people have more first degree contacts in their email inbox than they do on LinkedIn.
#2 Lists are sorted by relationship strength
This dramatically reduces the cognitive load of looking for canidates and accelerates your search.
#3 Your potential contacts are far more actionable
Connect The Dots also sorts your second degree connections based on relationship strength.

Employee Referral Program
Every company knows that their best candidates come from internal referrals. So how do you get more of those? With Connect The Dots you can have your employees connect both their work and personal email accounts so they can show you where they have valuable connections. This empowers recruiters and hiring managers to quickly see all the candidates they could get to through a warm introduction from an employee. In a similar vein, when it comes to back channel reference checks, chances are there are dozens of people who could provide insight on the candidate.
If your company is using Connect The Dots, when an employee leaves they get to take their network and relationships with them. This helps create a stronger Alumni network because it builds up the connective tissue between employees. Whether it's sales, recruiting, or product insight your Alumni are extremely valuable because they have an understanding of your business, your culture, and who you sell to.
