LinkedIn has a new time-saving feature for recruiters using LinkedIn Talent Solutions to find the world’s best talent. With LinkedIn Scheduler, recruiters can now automate initial interview scheduling by syncing their calendar to LinkedIn Recruiter, and then share their calendar availability with candidates directly in their InMails.
From then, candidates will be able to pick up the time that suits them best for their initial interview, and all the details will be automatically synced back to the recruiter’s calendar. “Not only are you saving a ton of time—you’re also screening candidates sooner (i.e., before the competition), creating a delightful (and mobile-friendly) candidate experience, and freeing yourself up to focus on the best part of your job: really connecting with talent,” the company explained.
LinkedIn Recruiter only works with Office 365 and Google calendars as of today, with “more coming soon.” You can get started with the new feature by checking LinkedIn’s Talent Solutions website.
