MUSTARD MINUTE: 13TH OCTOBER
Snapchat adds Context cards, LinkedIn launches Talent Insight for recruiters and Dove comes under fire for a racially insensitive Facebook Advertisement. All that and more, in this week’s Mustard Minute.
LinkedIn Launch Talent Insights
Listing as many as 11 million jobs at one time, LinkedIn has established a large business out of recruiting and it’s now one of their largest sources of revenue. It’s really no surprise a new Talent Insight will be launching, allowing recruiters to search different parameters related to a specific job they want to fill. All the while, the tool will provide company reports around recruitment patterns at a specific organisation and affiliated competition. For the full rundown check out Techcrunch.
