LinkedIn launches new search technology

LinkedIn, has been working hard of late to improve its LinkedIn Recruiter product and as an enhancement has launched a new offering called Dynamic Refinements which is a service that helps recruiters source for passive and active candidates in the network’s database.

The new Dynamic Refinements provides recruiters filters to refine candidate searches and drill down results to the expertise, geography, education and industry background.

It makes searching for candidate faster and allows recruiters to source passive candidates in fewer clicks and less time than before. It also provides guided navigation throughout the search and eliminates the need to construct complex boolean queries.

“The new search technology and capabilities come at a time when recruiters are fully recognizing the value of passive candidates,” said Francois Dufour, LinkedIn’s Senior Director of Enterprise Marketing. “Our recent research shows that 60% of recruiters believe they get better hires when hiring passive talent and an overwhelming majority of recruiters are using LinkedIn to find passive candidates for job opportunities.”
