Data helps recruiters build credibility internally.
Recruiters at Latitude Financial Services were often asked to search for potential candidates with highly nuanced—and many times, impossible-to-find—skill sets. LinkedIn Talent Insights provided intelligence the recruiting team needed to build credibility with hiring teams and manage unrealistic asks.
Managing unrealistic candidate requirements
Like most talent acquisition teams, Anastasia Liberatos’ recruiters at Latitude Financial Services were constantly being asked to find niche talent in challenging markets. The team often spent weeks researching a market to determine if candidates with the desired skills existed, even when their experience and instincts told them otherwise. Yet without solid data, the team had little ability to push back on candidate requirements requested by hiring teams.
A real-time—and realistic—view of the marketplace
The Latitude Financial Services recruiting team can quickly assess candidate availability in any market using Talent Pool Reports in LinkedIn Talent Insights. Recruiters now have access to information on which cities have a high supply of qualified candidates and low competition, and which businesses are attracting or losing sought-after employees. With data in hand, Liberatos and her team can push back on hiring criteria that may be unrealistic, conduct more productive intake meetings, and build more effective targeted outreach campaigns.
