LinkedIn’s New Jobs and Hiring Features Creates Better Matches

Today, we announced several new tasks and hiring features, including new Instant Job Alerts, which will be making finding the correct jobs easier, and the access to our fresh Recruiter and Jobs system, that is making it simpler for hiring managers to hire candidates.

Having grown from 300,000 into 20 million project postings in the past five years, we are seeing members apply to around 25 million jobs every week, using a brand new hire made every 8 minutes. From the feed, content shared across the platform, we are also seeing record levels of involvement for the 5th consecutive quarter, and messages delivered, and also more than ever before, the system to land and apply the perfect job for them is being used by members.  

We’re expanding our products to create it as straightforward as you can as possible for both job-seekers and hiring supervisors. Here’s how:

What is new for job-seekers?

  • New immediate job alarms: Job seekers who are one of the first 25 applicants are around 3X more likely to get the project and we want to make sure that to see the tasks that you want the moment their posted. Members will be sent a notification within moments when job that meets their standards or expertise is submitted to provide them the best chance of getting the job by our job alerts\.
