LinkedIn to launch a 'Talent Pipeline' in 2012

by Steve Dotto

The first major inroads LinkedIn made with the business community was with recruiters and headhunters. It has become the farm that seemingly all placement services work looking for a crop of talent to place in better jobs.

This is of course, not lost on the powers that be at LinkedIn who are looking for more users to upgrade from the free basic service to the premium (and in my mind quite expensive) fee based service.

Next year LinkedIn will launch LinkedIn Talent Pipeline which will help recruiters manage their crop of potential talent.

As many recruiters have thousands of potential leads to manage, the Talent Pipeline will use the power of social networking tools to help keep up to date, and communicate with their network. Talent Pipeline will be a multi-user service, allowing recruiting companies to share resources and leads.

A very interesting tool indeed.
