Today at the annual Taleo World conference, Taleo and LinkedIn announced new tools that leverage the power of LinkedIn’s professional network to help recruiters work faster, smarter and more effectively in managing candidates. These new tools will be part of the upcoming release of Taleo Enterprise Edition 11b and we think it’s a win-win for recruiters and job-seekers.
Apply for jobs with your LinkedIn profile
Taleo is leveraging the Apply with LinkedIn technology we released in August to make it easier for individuals to apply for jobs. Job application forms are often long and can be a little discouraging, leading some candidates to abandon their application or not even apply at all. With Taleo, candidates will be able to use the data in their LinkedIn profile to complete many of the application fields, making the process far faster and easier. Not only does that make applicants happier with the employer, it also increases the number of quality passive candidates that apply.
