LinkedIn has announced LinkedIn Placements to make it easier for graduating students across India to find their first jobs. Also, the new initiative will help placement officers and recruiters to manage campus placements.
“Our conversations with students, placement officers and recruiters involved in campus recruitment point to an unmet need for efficiency and effectiveness. We are excited to start this journey to provide a locally developed solution that helps to improve the experience and processes for everyone involved in the entire campus recruitment ecosystem,” said Ganesan Venkatasubramanian, Head of Engineering, LinkedIn India.
LinkedIn Placements makes it easier for placement officers to organise all data and take decisions that can help achieve maximum placements. For example, the placement officer can easily see the offers a student holds and take action to ensure future applicants conform to the placement policy of the college
It enables recruiters to post jobs and filter candidates they want to meet, ahead of the campus visit.
Right from user research to visual design and framework, LinkedIn Placements has been built from scratch by an in-house team of 40+ employees from different functions including product, engineering and operations, user experience design, marketing, data science and business development.
