LinkedIn announced some important updates for recruiters today at Talent Connect, the company’s biggest event of the year. The new product updates follow the recent introduction of Skills Assessments, a new feature allowing job seekers to validate their skills and better stand out from other candidates on the platform.
First of all, the LinkedIn Recruiter mobile app is being revamped with an improved search and messaging experience. The app has been rebuilt from the ground up to make it more useful for recruiters using it on the go, and it will be available on iOS and Android later this year.
LinkedIn Talent Insights, the company’s self-service analytics tools that was released last year will also be integrated into the new LinkedIn Recruiter & Jobs experience later this Fall. "This means that while managing your candidate search in LinkedIn Recruiter, you’ll be able to simply click on the “Talent Insights Report” tab to see labor market data from LinkedIn Talent Insights,” the company explained today, adding that companies using both LinkedIn Recruiter and LinkedIn Talent Insights are seeing a +22% lift in InMail accept rates.
LinkedIn Talent Hub, the end-to-end hiring solution that combines LinkedIn Recruiter, LinkedIn Jobs, Apply with LinkedIn and more is also generally available today. Other updates LinkedIn announced today include LinkedIn Recruiter System Connect (RSC) integration with Oracle’s Taleo Enterprise Edition, with Unified Search being part of the next evolution of RSC.
