Linkedin Adds ‘Scheduler’ Feature to Simplify Recruiting Process

Scheduler feature helps recruiters and candidates to find right candidate and schedule a meeting via InMail.

Business- and employment-oriented social networking platform, Linkedin has recently launched a new feature on February 14, 2018 called ‘Scheduler’. The main aim of this feature is to ease the hiring process by allowing recruiters to screen through eligible candidates along with managing the time utilized on scheduling a meeting. The candidate or recruiters can connect via Inmail and discus upon the time slot that works the best for both by checking each other’s calendars.

“Our goal is to help you spend less time on the back-and-forth-and a lot more time delighting, advising, and helping candidates make the decision to join your company.” He added that “LinkedIn ‘Scheduler’ is just the latest way that we’re working to make recruiters more productive, powerful, and personal,” said Peter Rigano, Senior Product Manager at LinkedIn.

Users have to sync InMail to office 365 or Google calendar and it will automatically set the availability on calendar to detect suitable interviews times. Recruiters can approach eligible candidates by forwarding a link using InMail. Candidate can review the recruiter’s calendar to decide suitable time. The feature also allows users to add phone numbers to confirm the meeting.

Furthermore, advance settings such as time zones, availability, length of meetings, and same-day meetings allows recruiters to manage preferred candidates. LinkedIn also launched career guidance service named ‘Career Advice’ in India. The program connects users with mentors who can guide them regarding career, regarding searching for jobs and further studies.
