Scott Robarge leverages more than a decade of recruiting experience to lead Another8, a recruiting firm he founded that helps technology companies secure talent for a wide range of positions. In his recruiting efforts, Scott Robarge utilizes a variety of online recruiting platforms, including LinkedIn.
At its 2014 Talent Connect conference, LinkedIn announced a number of new tools designed to increase recruiting and hiring efficiency for companies using the site in 2015. LinkedIn currently offers a separate “Recruiter” profile tool that allows recruiters to network with personal connections, as well as supervise outgoing queries.
In 2015, the company is launching a data visualization tool that will allow recruiters with specific requirements to discover more qualified candidates by using search criteria such as experience level and geography. This tool will help recruiters gain access to a broader or more narrow range of data as needed. LinkedIn will also launch a second tool in 2015 that reveals patterns and spot trends across former successful hires, which will enable recruiters to focus on future candidates who may be suitable for the company culture.
