LinkedIn Improves Its Recruiter Platform

LinkedIn is the most widely used platform when it comes to finding jobs and hiring new employees. In order to streamline its hiring process and providing more relevant matches to recruiters, the professional networking platform has taken many strides to upgrade its recruiting tools.

As explained by LinkedIn:

“Recruiters have told us they’re often frustrated by the need to jump from tool to tool. We’ve heard you. So we’ve put all of our core tools – Jobs, Recruiter, and Pipeline Builder – on a single platform. Once you create a project, you will be able to see the results from all your active sourcing channels – search results, job applicants, media leads – under the Talent Pool tab, and you can manage candidates from there.”

However, the most interesting thing about this upgrade is not the unifying of these recruitment tools. Rather, it is the addition of new AI tools to help find better suited candidates based on past platform data and trends.

As outlined on the LinkedIn Engineering Blog, the new candidate matching algorithm will provide more advanced capacity, learning from your personal interests.

“Based on how you interact with candidates, our algorithm learns your preferences and delivers increasingly relevant candidates across the Jobs product. If you’re consistently interested in candidates who are, say, accountants with leadership skills, or project managers who are adept at social media, we’ll send you more of those. And this all happens online in real time so that your feedback is taken instantly into account.”

LinkedIn is probably the best platform to implement this owing to its unmatched database of career development and related data points. According to LinkedIn, the new system is providing 20% better results than its predecessor in generating relevant recommendations.

In addition to this, LinkedIn’s also adding new calls to action, which will enable any employee to share open positions at a company (LinkedIn says that 70% of the people who’ve changed jobs using LinkedIn were hired at a company where they knew someone), along with an improved process to send rejection notes to unsuccessful applicants and a new shared messaging system which displays your entire communications stream with each candidate in one place.

LinkedIn’s moves will surely be appreciated by regular users. We can be sure LinkedIn will continue to add more tools to its arsenal and optimize its algorithms as they grow beyond the current 610 million users.
