Google recently entered the talent management market with their new service called Hire. Hire makes it easy for you to identify talent, build candidate relationships and efficiently manage the interview process end-to-end. It integrates seamlessly with G Suite apps like Gmail and Google Calendar. It will be interesting to see how Microsoft and Google will compete in this market.
