Solvate, a company that businesses looking for resources with professionals looking for work, today announced the launch of its “Talent Engine.” It’s basically a search engine that is designed to enable small businesses to query Solvate’s index of independent professionals and connect with appropriate matches.

Independent professionals (Solvate calls them “Talent”) can register with Solvate and create a profile for the Talent Engine by selecting the specific professional services they have for sale. Talent are required to note which companies and brands they have performed those services for in the past, which makes it possible for businesses to identify the most qualified Talent for their project. Businesses can filter profiles in the Talent Engine according to specific criteria including service, company, brand, industry, specialty and skill.

Before building a profile, all Talent must complete a recruiting and vetting process that includes evaluating a candidate’s public recommendations, samples of work or portfolio and references. This vetting process is designed to ensure that Solvate’s customers receive a professional experience and high quality results.

Small businesses and looking for resources can browse available Talent, and sign up for a Solvate account here. Members get a dedicated Account Manager to help manage their projects.

U.S.-based independent professionals looking to market their skills through Solvate can begin the vetting processes by applying online.

I’m interested to hear from both professionals who have registered with Solvate and businesses that have found professional using the service. Let us know what you think of Solvate in the comments.

  4. Solvate rocks! I’ve used their service for personal admin tasks, travel, and pulling together big expense reports. They’ve also helped our company find programmers, copy writers and project managers. The best part is their great service. They really help you find the best people and they help get the job done at an amazingly great price.

  5. Solvate rocks! Ben kişisel admin görevler, seyahat, hizmet, kullanmış ve birlikte büyük harcama raporları çekerek. Ayrıca, kopya yazarlar ve proje yöneticileri programcıları bulmak firmamız yardımcı oldular. En iyi bölüm bunların büyük bir hizmettir. Onlar çok iyi insanlar bulmanıza yardımcı ve iş şaşılacak derecede büyük fiyata yapılan yardım.

  6. I’ve been using Solvate for about a year and love it.
    I’m officially hooked – it’s like having an army of intelligent administrators on speed dial.
    From booking flights, to writing research or filling out expense reports … just try it once and you’ll be hooked.
    They are the extra 12 hours you need in a 24 hour day.
