How does LinkedIn Recruiter 2024 work?
Recruiter 2024 helps businesses find qualified candidates by connecting your search requirements with the millions of data points LinkedIn has on suitable candidates. In fact, it operates in a similar way to OpenAI’s AI chatbot, ChatGPT.
With conversational search, you can explain to the chat bot what you’re hiring for, and why. In addition, you can explain your top-down hiring goals, and the generative AI technology will deploy talent strategies your HR leaders may not have thought about. This is down to the conversational language built into a kind of AI tech called an LLM (Large Language Model). This type of AI uses NLP (Natural Language Processing) to understand your needs on a genuinely deep level, to the point that it can recommend information, ideas, and strategies that you didn’t know you didn’t know.
LinkedIn’s VP of Product, Hari Srinivasan, shared via the LinkedIn Talent Blog, that “With the new Recruiter 2024 experience, talent leaders can use natural language and put their hiring goal in their own words like “I want to hire a senior growth marketing leader.” And with generative AI combined with our insights, we can infer the type of candidate the hirer is looking for and provide higher-quality candidate recommendations from a much wider pool of candidates — moving beyond the brand-name companies that have traditionally been the default.”
Will AI replace recruiters?
It’s possible that recruitment will one of the professions hit hardest by AI automation in 2024. LinkedIn’s new generative AI can pull unique insights from more than 950 million professionals, and 65 million companies currently registered. The Recruiter product knows exactly the type of candidate to recommend, based on a greater wealth of hiring and employment data than any other ‘social’ platform.
If Recruiter 2024 can provide higher-quality candidate recommendations, and ultimately hit hiring goals faster than a human recruiter, we’re set to see a shift across multiple industries.
