With a rapidly growing number of LinkedIn Recruiter customers now forging ahead with new talent pipelining capabilities, we’re seeing some common themes for getting the most out of these new tools. Many are sharing unique success stories on how pipelining is changing the way they view the world of talent, even before the prospects hit their official ATS radar. Building a targeted pipeline of prospective candidates has some clear benefits, such as zeroing in on the right talent well before reqs are even opened; generating an ongoing line of communication with those prospects; and ensuring your sourcing efforts don’t go to waste when a candidate isn’t initially the perfect match.
Our own internal pipelining experts have put together some practical tips to help others fully embrace the opportunity. As you kick off your own pipelining efforts, you may already be employing some of these approaches, but others may spark some creative and useful tactics to get your recruiting teams moving with purpose and efficiency.
