LINKEDIN UPDATES RECRUITER PLATFORM 

Linkedin has now updated the AI for the Recruiter platform(s) to improve the matching process.

So we’ve put all of our core tools - Jobs, Recruiter, and Pipeline Builder - on a single platform.

  • Notification of group posts initiated by connections
  • HIghlight relevant conversations 
  • Post review and approval
  • Group cover images

Is this all too late?  Will these features encourage you to do more with LinkedIn groups?
