PCRecruiter Capture

The PCRecruiter Capture tool (Available in the Chrome Webstore) gives users the ability to bring Candidate profiles into their database. With the newest version of Capture users also have a new PCR Match functionality which identifies if a person already exists in your database and allows for numerous quick actions.

This newest version of Capture provides users the ability to capture profiles from various social sites. If a site is not one of our predefined sites we work with, you will still have highlight and parse functionality which we will discuss later. These sites include:

  • LinkedIn
  • Indeed
  • Dice
  • CareerBuilder
  • ZoomInfo
  • Monster
  • Xing
  • Resume Library
  • Elempleo
  • JobStreet

With this new update you will also have the ability to look at a list of names on any site and quickly see if a name is in your PCRecruiter database. These names are designated by a PCRecruiter icon following them, which allows quick access to the name record and some action icons. This PCR Match feature is automatically enabled for the above listed sites, with the ability to utilize it on other sites as well; which we will discuss later.

PCR Capture is still a free extension available in the Chrome Store, you can find the download here. If you already have Capture your tool should update automatically. Please keep in mind you must be using the Chrome Web Browser in order to access this great tool.

Duplicate Checking

There are three tiers used in duplicate checking when using the PCR Capture tool, they are as follows:

  1. Social Network Match (Darkest Green): A profile has the same url as the current page, so it’s almost certainly the same person
  2. Name Match (Lighter Green): The First Name and Last Name match the current page (Or a derivative such as Rob vs. Robert)
  3. Less than perfect Name Match (Hardly Green): This would include things such as emails, addresses, phone number, etc.
