We all know that most professionals, except for the most active job seekers, don’t keep their resumes updated. Furthermore, only 10-20% of individuals are actively looking for a new job. So why do career sites limit their applicant pool by requiring a resume just to get the recruiting process started? Well, employers didn’t have much choice—until today.
“Apply with LinkedIn” is a new plugin that lets professionals apply for jobs by simply using their LinkedIn profile. Employers can use the free plugin on their career sites and even job postings on the web to reach more than 100 million LinkedIn professionals around the world. With increased access to high-quality talent and a streamlined application process, employers can attract more active and even passive candidates to their jobs.
