I am a salaried recruiter at a US-based 50-person startup. We have been pretty successful recruiting for developer positions here, we have no immediate plans to hire more developers, and we've rejected some pretty great candidates.
Looking around at the tech scene, I know there are other companies that some of these rejected candidates would be a great fit for (I even have friends working at some of these companies).
Can I share these candidates with other companies? How about just a name? What if I email the candidate first and ask him/her for permission to share their info?
