Discover the LinkedIn Recruiter 2024, where we ride the wave of AI innovation to transform recruiting. Join us as we embrace the future of talent acquisition and unlock new possibilities.
If you've been immersed in the world of recruiting like I have, you've probably noticed the subtle tremors of change. The recruiting landscape is shifting under our feet, and it's not just the latest workplace trend or a new buzzword that's causing it.
No, it's something much more powerful: Artificial Intelligence (AI).
And guess what? LinkedIn, our trusty partner in all things job recruitment, is leading the charge with some exciting updates. Buckle up because it’s time to dive into the future of LinkedIn recruiting in 2024!
LinkedIn Recruiter: AI's Influence
There's been a lot of buzz about how AI is revolutionizing... well, everything. And guess what? The workplace isn't immune to this revolution.
You might have heard people saying, "College degrees are becoming obsolete," and you're probably wondering if that's just a bit dramatic. But here's the tea: In AI-driven workplaces, traditional degrees might just become the side dish, not the main course. Don’t get me wrong, they still hold value, but the spotlight is increasingly on skills.
Here’s the thing: AI is transforming jobs, making them more about tasks and skills than rigid titles. And LinkedIn CEO, Ryan Roslansky, hit the nail on the head when he said at the 12th annual Talent Connect event that jobs are evolving to focus more on “human and people-oriented skills.” As robots and algorithms take on the mundane, we humans get to shine in areas like collaboration, creativity, and emotional intelligence.
This is where continuous learning comes into play. Your degree might be from 2010, but your latest skill course? 2024.
And that’s what companies are looking out for: adaptable folks who are always leveling up. That's why recruiters keep on learning and expanding their knowledge because this (r)evolution isn't stopping!
It’s an exciting era, with AI giving us the tools to make workplaces more efficient, innovative, and human-centric.
LinkedIn Recruiter 2024: AI Features
Remember those hours spent manually filtering through profiles, trying to find that perfect match for your job vacancy? Or crafting those Boolean search strings that, more often than not, ended up being more complex than your high school algebra homework?
Well, it's time to kiss them goodbye.
Here’s the scoop:
1. The AI LinkedIn Makeover
LinkedIn is spicing things up with the first wave of its AI transformation for LinkedIn Recruiter. The new features have started rolling out since October 2023 and will continue to do so until April 2024.
So, if you haven't seen them yet, stay alert - they're on the horizon and coming to your LinkedIn account.
2. Natural Language is In
Now, instead of ticking a gazillion boxes or typing in cryptic search commands, you can literally tell LinkedIn what you want. Fancy saying, "Hey LinkedIn, find me a candidate who has experience in digital marketing and loves dogs?"
Well, maybe not the dogs part (yet), but you get the idea. It's all about making your search more intuitive and human-like. (Before you start getting upset that you can't select candidates based on this bias, let me tell you, I know!)
Will this actually work? I guess we'll find out. I've tried several sourcing tools using ChatGPT, and honestly, they've been the worst I've seen in years. But hey, fingers crossed LinkedIn does a better job with this matching part than those tools I tested.
3. Candidate Highlights
LinkedIn will also spotlight candidates based on certain criteria they currently track, such as if they're job hunting, have an interest in your company, are responding to recruiters, are following your company, interact with company content, or select "I'm interested" in future roles on your company LinkedIn profile.
How Does LinkedIn Recruiter 2024 Work?
Ready to feel like you're in a sci-fi movie? Because LinkedIn's brand-new AI features are going to give you those futuristic vibes. Let’s dive in!
Remember the days when searching for the perfect candidate felt like hunting for a needle in a haystack? Say goodbye to those days. LinkedIn's latest AI-assisted tools are here to revolutionize the way you discover potential candidates.
Imagine this: Instead of being confined to ticking boxes or playing with filters, you simply tell LinkedIn what you're looking for. Like, "Hey LinkedIn, find me a seasoned marketing leader who's worked in rapid-growth environments and is chill with our downtown office location." Sounds dreamy, right? This is what we're talking about. Natural language searches that feel... well, natural.
But the fun doesn’t stop there. As you go through the selection process, you can have a back-and-forth with this AI tool. Need to refine the search further? No problem. Drop a line like, "Only show me candidates who are actively looking for a job," and the tool will instantly filter out anyone else.
But wait, there's more. LinkedIn's AI isn’t just sticking to the script (or, your exact words). It'll gently nudge you, offering insights and suggestions. Think of it as that helpful colleague who always has a bright idea to share. If you're stuck or unsure about certain skills or qualifications, the AI might say, “How about considering candidates with XYZ skill?” It’s like having a recruiter sidekick.
The AI that is part of LinkedIn Recruiter could actually work proactively one day!
Imagine, you're searching for a role that could be onsite or hybrid, and just like a friendly tap on the shoulder (virtually, of course!), the AI suggests, "Hey, have you thought about making this role remote? Your competitors are doing it, and it can increase your chances of hiring by 27% while expanding your candidate pool." Pretty game-changing, right?

Chatting About the AI-Driven LinkedIn of Tomorrow
Remember when we used to just look for job titles and generic descriptions on profiles? Those days are in the rearview mirror. With AI in the mix, we're moving beyond that, focusing on skills, tasks, and genuine engagement. It's like going from looking at black and white photographs to vibrant, 3D holograms. More depth, more detail, more... everything!
If there’s one thing I'd love for you to remember, it's the value of continuous learning. Heck, we're in an era where things change so fast that what you knew last year might be old news now.
LinkedIn is evolving, and so should we. So, keep updating your skills, try to learn as much as possible about AI tools and, hey, why not take a course or two on LinkedIn Learning, Udemy, or Coursera?
For all the recruiters out there: let's welcome this AI transformation with open arms. It's not about machines taking over; it's about machines helping us do our job better, faster, and more efficiently. Instead of spending hours sifting through profiles, imagine having the perfect candidate pop up after a simple chat with an AI.
So, to everyone navigating this ever-evolving LinkedIn landscape and this LinkedIn Recruiter 2024 version that is coming, let’s embrace the change, keep learning, and remember - it’s all about making genuine connections. Whether with people or, in this case, with a little help from some friendly AI.
Cheers to the future of recruiting!
