New feature could help connect job seekers with Vegas administrative jobs

Sunday, October 30th, 2011

A new feature launched by LinkedIn could potentially connect job seekers with Vegas administrative jobs.

Professional networking site LinkedIn recently launched LinkedIn Talent Pipeline, a new solution for recruiters which will give them the ability to manage all of their talent leads in one place, helping them recruit the best talent more quickly.

The announcement was made onstage by LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner in front of more than 1,800 recruiting professionals at the company’s Talent Connect customer event in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The new feature will also help recruit for sales jobs in San Antonio.

With the rise of social media, recruiters are dealing with an increase in online networks as sources of talent who may not be actively seeking a new job. This is in addition to more traditional sources such as personal referrals, conferences, job boards and company career sites. This shift toward recruiting ‘passive’ talent gives recruiters access to a much larger pool of potential candidates with the right skills and experience than if they relied on active candidates alone. Talent Pipeline will allow recruiters to keep track of all of these potential candidates in one place, even before they enter the formal application process.

Speaking on the announcement, LinkedIn CEO Jeff Weiner commented, “Recruiters are actively looking for more talent from more sources and managing all their talent leads across multiple tools. With LinkedIn Talent Pipeline, we’re extending our Recruiter platform and continuing our focus to connect talent with opportunity on a massive scale by providing a single place to manage and update these leads, wherever they are found.”

Because most passive candidates have not formally applied for a job, they are not tracked in a company’s Applicant Tracking System (ATS). As a result, many recruiters are simply tracking leads in their own spreadsheets – a tool designed for crunching numbers, not tracking, nurturing and collaborating on recruitment.

James Holincheck, Managing Vice President of Human Capital Management at Gartner, commented, “One of the most frequent things we hear from enterprises today is a desire to better manage the increasing number of talent sources. Recruiters know that passive candidates are an important source of talent and want better tools to capture this opportunity.”
