Efficiently find candidates for roles

Finding the best candidate for an open role requires looking internally and externally to ensure the job posting is seen by as many people as possible. You need an easy way to create visibility about the open position, and source candidates from all possible places.


Search for candidates, discovering the talent you already have within your organization with Delve, a personalized, intelligent search tool. Delve includes rich employee profiles that highlight the projects they’ve worked on, skills they have, and interests they want to develop. It’s integrated with LinkedIn, to help employees call out their work experience.

Important: Delve is retiring in December 2024. You can find similar features in other Microsoft apps. To make your transition off Delve as smooth as possible, we recommend you explore alternative options to Delve in Microsoft 365.

You can also post the job description to Viva Engage, an enterprise social network where employees can connect across the organization. Encourage people to share the post with their professional network, and ask those who are interested to apply.

Once you’ve found the right candidates to evaluate, create a Microsoft Teams channel where recruiters and managers can share and review candidate resumes. Use chat and audio or video calling to discuss candidate profiles, and keep track of next steps. Once you identify and hire a candidate, you’ll still have other resumes to reference in Teams when similar roles are available.


  • Discover in-house talent.

  • Use internal and external social networks to gather leads such as Delve, LinkedIn, and Viva Engage.
