Could you describe a time when the community helped you?

Jared Nypen: Just recently, we discovered that a number of our applications coming in to our company were fake. A lot of data that really didn't make sense to us. And, so one of the first things we did was we asked the question to the Talent Marketing Board to see if anyone else was experiencing this and to find out if any of those companies were using the same vendors or job boards that we were using so that we could hopefully identify some patterns. And within minutes, we had responses from a number of companies that let us know that we weren't alone, as well as let us know that we weren't alone using the same vendors that we were using. So it really allowed us to go back to our vendors to say, "Hey, we know there's more that are experiencing this. Let's look into this, let's dig in, let's find out what's going on." So that's the time that the Talent Marketing Board really helped us with some immediate benchmarking that helped us solve the issue ourselves, as well as work with our vendors to help solve that issue.
