LinkedIn Launches New Corporate Recruiter Product
Mountain View — March 10, 2008 — LinkedIn Corporation, the world’s largest professional network with more than 20 million users, today announced a new Corporate Solutions product, LinkedIn Recruiter. LinkedIn Recruiter offers premium features and services designed to work intuitively to fit individual corporate staffing departments’ needs.
LinkedIn Recruiter allows users to group candidates in folders and tag them with comments. By increasing collaboration, LinkedIn Recruiter helps teams know immediately whether someone on the team has reached out to a potential candidate. In addition to the new collaboration features, LinkedIn Recruiter introduces powerful new search capabilities, giving staffing departments unique reach into LinkedIn’s network of over 20 million professionals. Now users can search by title, company or keywords to find more contacts that best fit their search criteria. Corporate staffing departments with LinkedIn Recruiter can view up to 1,000 search results instead of the 500 available in other accounts.
“Over 500 companies already depend on LinkedIn’s Corporate Solutions to find the best candidates for their hard to fill and senior–level positions,” says George Seiters, LinkedIn’s Senior Director of Corporate Solutions Product Marketing. “By making it easier for teams to collaborate, LinkedIn Recruiter streamlines the entire talent acquisition process so teams can spend more time getting candidates through the interview process rather than sifting through piles of resumes.”
Along with LinkedIn Recruiter’s premium features, users enjoy professional account management, priority service and training. By leveraging the new features in LinkedIn Recruiter, staffing professionals can see more leads, reduce their third party spend, increase their talent pipeline, save time and increase their visibility. Unlike other recruiting tools that only enable users to reach active inbound candidates, LinkedIn Recruiter also gives users the unique advantage of being able to find and communicate with passive candidates.
LinkedIn Recruiter is available now. Pricing is based on a per seat/case-by-case basis. Visit LinkedIn Recruiter for a full demo and to find out more information about how LinkedIn Recruiter can help your organization find and hire senior and hard to fill positions.
