A look at LinkedIn’s incredible growth over the past 7 years.With about half a billion professionals on the planet: we’re only getting started!
Let’s talk about how we start executing and operating using the future of data NOW…TODAY.In the States we call the impossible to find candidate the “purple squirrel” because they don’t exist.Raise your hand if you have every worked with a hiring manager who is asking you to recruit a type of candidate who simply doesn’t exist. They are asking for too much.The Engineer with a PhD from Oxford who also speaks Italian, can lead teams, can also sell to customers and has worked at a multinational, a start-up and is now working at either company X, Y or Z.…Can any of you relate with that?Well we can now start using structured data to educate our clients, our executives and hiring managers about the market and the “addressable candidate pool”. What does this do for our function?It builds credibility.Let’s take a look at an actual example from LinkedIn.
This was from an actual search we conducted for a Data Center Manager. David Henke, our SVP of Engineering, was under the gun, putting huge pressure on recruiting to get the search filled.We met with David to understand his requirements seen here. Told him we would be back in an hour to talk further. We knew that this was going to be very hard to fill, but we didn’t want to get in to a debate with our Sr. Vide President. So we went away, pulled some data and returned to his office to meet him.
