LinkedIn Updates Recruiter Tool

Posted Apr 10, 2013

Professional social network LinkedIn has been developing a new Recruiter tool for the last few months.  Today LinkedIn released the new Recruiter tool.  Some of the new features include suggested job candidates and a way to find out how many people are looking at the job postings.

LinkedIn Recruiter now lets you customize your update feed to stay on top of activities, your team’s activities, and candidates that you may be interested in.  From the update feed, you can renew a job posting that is expiring and check for new results for your saved searches.

Updating the LinkedIn Recruiter tool is vital for the company’s bottom line. Two months ago, LinkedIn posted strong Q4 earnings and reported that their revenue was 81% higher than the same quarter in 2011.  About 53% of the Q4 revenue came from the company’s “Talent Solutions” division at $161 million.  The division saw a 90% increase in revenue from Q4 2011.
