Industry News: How the new Linkedin Recruiter will speed up your searches!
To make it easier to pinpoint the right person faster, LinkedIn recently rolled out its newly redesigned LinkedIn Recruiter product.
It is designed to aid recruitment both in-house and agency, along with business owners to find and engage with the best talent faster. The changes to LinkedIn Recruiter are expected to make the lives of recruiters easier than ever. This is all part of LinkedIn’s drive to evolve recruitment professionals to be more strategic advisors for their organisation.

So how does the Recruiter do it? 

Replicate the best hires
For many recruiters looking for their next top hire, it’s often easier to say who they’re looking for rather than what skills they want. With the new tool, users can type in the name of top employees into Recruiter and its algorithms will serve up a list of professionals with similar skills and experience. This will be labelled Ideal Candidates and can be a quick and effective way to let the data do the hard work on finding great talent.

Assess talent pools in real time
For recruiters involved in planning new growth strategies for their company, one of the first questions should be how are they going to effectively find the right talent to make the business’ initiatives a success. Available talent pools will show up with all potential candidates based on the specific skills and experience they’re looking for. The number of available candidates will immediately update depending on how broad or narrow they make their search, giving you a pretty accurate idea of how easy or hard it will be to find the skills they need.

Prioritise the most-likely candidates first
We think this is actually one of the best functions! Filling critical roles is often about speed as much as the right skills and experience. LinkedIn Recruiter helps highlight the candidates most likely to respond to a recruiter by looking at the digital cues that suggest they might show an interest in an organisation. This includes candidates that already have connections within the company, those who followed its Company Page or liked, commented on, or shared a relevant update, and even previous job applicants. These ‘Spotlight’ candidates are 2-3 times more likely to respond to a recruiter, increasing the speed of finding the best talent.
