Announcing a New and Improved Search in Linkedin Recruiter

June 15, 2009

New Search in LinkedIn Recruiter helps you find the best passive candidates faster and easier then ever

I am writing today to announce the latest improvements to Search within LinkedIn Recruiter – now when you search for people, companies and expertise on LinkedIn Recruiter, our new dynamic refinement tool gives you multiple options to drill down to exactly the expertise, geography, education and industry background you need, in less time than ever.  This new search functionality is currently available exclusively to LinkedIn Recruiter customers.



Recruiters fully recognize the value of passive candidates (60% of them said they get better hires when hiring passive talent) and realize what a great a source of passive talent LinkedIn represents (93% said that the site that they have used most successfully to hire is LinkedIn)

LinkedIn Recruiter, which already brings the widest search space, gets even better with a major improvement of its search feature. Here are its key benefits:


  • Guided Navigation: A list of relevant attributes are generated dynamically for every search in order to guide you through the optimal path to find the most relevant candidates


  • More Intuitive: Narrowing your search is easier than ever with an intuitive user interface that allows you to slice and dice search results by over a dozen refinement options


  • Increased Efficiency: Get to an actionable set of relevant candidates in seconds


  • Reduced Complexity: It significantly reduces the need for complex Boolean queries that we all hate to build

We hope this new search functionality augments your productivity and we’d love to hear your feedback, questions and suggestions.
