Talent Connect is back in Las Vegas this October 10-12, 2012!
Tuesday at Talent Connect opened with a series of keynote sessions, starting with an introduction by LinkedIn head of HR, Steve Cadigan with the head of Hiring Solutions Mike Gamson and headlined by CEO Jeff Weiner (see the keynote video). Jeff shared the behavioral changes that are afoot: the way we go online to represent ourselves, network and find insights is fundamentally transforming the way we work. LinkedIn is replacing the resume, and ultimately the business card and the rolodex, says Jeff. But candidates are no longer constrained to their desktops, or even to LinkedIn.com for that matter. As a recruiter, in order to access and organize all the quality talent leads out there, you need a reliable platform to bring it all under one roof. And with that, Jeff and VP of Products David Hahn introduced LinkedIn Talent Pipeline – a single place to keep all your talent prospects (whether or not you found them on LinkedIn), connect them to their LinkedIn profiles to get greater insight, and provide access to everyone on your recruiting team. It’s coming in 2012 and will be included with LinkedIn Recruiter, so watch for more updates in the next few weeks. As Jeff said, Talent Acquisition professionals, with LinkedIn’s help, have been transforming recruiting. Together, we want to transform it again.
