What’s New: LinkedIn; Bizible; Social Recruitment Monitor

[1]Wowzer [2] — So much new, so little time. You have updates to existing products, like LinkUp’s [3], and startups sprouting up left and right faster than you can say Vieple [4].

From video interviewing to “job matching” to social media-oriented job boards [5], recruiting technology continues to proliferate, including two or three companies you may not have you’ve heard of yet (below). Meanwhile, as I mentioned was coming [6], LinkedIn is out with those “big, not-yet-specified changes” to profiles. Here’s some of what’s new:

  • Bizible [7] is not a recruiting product exactly, but a marketing product that could be used for sourcing. It was accepted into Techstars [8] Seattle this summer. You use it to figure out the “exact ROI generated per online marketing source.”
  • A marketing/advertising agency called Maximum has launched the Social Recruitment Monitor [9] to measure your social media recruiting activities. As you can see [10], the focus right now is on Facebook, and later other channels. You can benchmark yourself against other companies, with data changing weekly.
  • LinkedIn is changing its profiles. (If you are connected to me, you can see my profile looks different [11] if you view the full profile — or check out your own). Photos are bigger. People’s connections are more prominently displayed. The “strength” of your profile will be more obvious — to encourage you to update it. Also, check out someone you’re connected to: you’ll get a more visual representation — more than with the old profiles — of what you have in common with the people you’re connected to, using the circular comparison graphics you see here in the screenshot below.

[12]Anyhow, back to the startups: More are on the way. One I’m in touch is an applicant tracking system that’s based on your email inbox — you can schedule interviews, for example, using Gmail and Google Calendar. It’s backed by two venture capital firms and will launch soon.
