One new prominent feature of the Recruiter platform is that it will show recruiters similar prospective hires, so that they can speed up their hiring process. More specifically, a recruiter will have to select the profile of an employee and LinkedIn will then create a list of candidates that share similar professional characteristics.
Apart from that, LinkedIn will also be launching a new feature to complement its Referrals feature. As you may already know, Referrals analyses a company’s employees and traces which of their 1st degree connections could be good potential hires.
If you like our stories, there is an easy way to stay updated:
The new service, called Spotlight, analyses employee’s contacts and sees which of them have liked the company’s page and have interacted with its updates. Moreover, if an employee sends a link for a job-opening to a potential candidate, then recruiters will get a notification as soon as the person applies.
Although updates will not be available until Q1 2016, it looks like LinkedIn is getting a lot smarter in its approach to recruitment.
