Today, I’m excited to introduce CheckIn – the newest member of the LinkedIn Talent Solutions product family that we unveiled at Talent Connect Australia 2013. CheckIn is a mobile app that radically simplifies how recruiters collect and manage candidate information at events.
We built CheckIn for two reasons. First, the fastest growing demographic on LinkedIn is students and recent graduates, who now comprise more than 30 million of our more than 225 million members. Second, lots of recruiters annually fill hundreds to thousands of internships and entry-level jobs via campus events. Unfortunately, most of the products used to collect student and recent-graduate information at campus events are archaic and cumbersome.
