LinkedIn has added several features to its Recruiter platform. These include real-time profile matches, mini profiles, and free InMails to 1st degree and fellow group members.

"We’ve offered a Candidate Match feature for a while, but now, if there are matches, you’ll get instant candidate recommendations in the job posting flow, says LinkedIn’s Prasad Gune.  "What used to take 24+ hours in a batch process now takes just seconds and integrates into your workflow. You can go straight from the posting process to reviewing and reaching out to talent recommended by our proprietary technology."

Customers who post through a job distributor or automated Job Wrapping process can edit the job in Recruiter as its posted and see the real-time profile match results.

The mini-profiles come in the form of a hover feature that appears on the Recruiter homepage and names in modules like "People who viewed this profile". Actions can be performed from within the mini-profile.


Users can also now message direct connections and group members from Recruiter without using up their available InMail balance.

LinkedIn has added over 30 enhancements to its Recruiter Platform so far this year.

    While the other enhancements sounds like a fine and natural extension of Recruiter platform functionality, I remain skeptical of the candidate match feature. Any sort of app I have seen that includes so-called matching technology tends to be a ham-fisted attempt to match the most obvious (read “useless”) keyword associated with your requirement.

    I’m interested in seeing where this platform goes and what others’ experience is with it. I’ve seen live demos and the technology looks promising, but the pricing seems to be out of line with the value delivered… at least so far.
