There are many lessons that can be learned from the fabled career of Apple cofounder Steve Jobs, but there’s one that’s especially relevant for recruiters: Look for talent where no one else is looking..
In the face of an uncertain macroeconomic climate, the ability to learn and showcase in-demand skills is critical to helping people get a foot in the door with a new company or finding a new role within their organization. For many professions, certifications have emerged as key to this, with the number of people on LinkedIn who've added certifications to their profile increasing 44% over the last two years.

Over the past few years, we’ve witnessed a near constant state of change in the world of work — from how and where people get their work done to what they expect from their employers in terms of benefits and support.

Subsidized groceries and restaurant meals. Peloton memberships. Fertility treatments. Modern perks and benefits are routinely used to keep employees happy. But the strategic use of employee perks is hardly new. In 13 BCE, Caesar Augustus gave his retiring soldiers a pension.
Augustus was trying to keep his legions from rebelling. Today’s leaders, instead, deploy benefits to attract and retain talent.
Recruiters, many who have led the way through the challenges of the Great Reshuffle, recently came together in San Francisco (in real life!) for LinkedIn’s Recruiter Reunion. They heard from talent leaders on how they can continue to help their organizations thrive through economic twists and turns.
Hidden gems. Undiscovered talent. If you’re a recruiter looking to find the special candidates who are overlooked by others, sourcing expert Angie Verros can help.
We spoke to Angie, founder, CEO, and “sourceress” of Vaia Talent, to arm you with the right tools for the task. Angie has been in the sourcing game for more than 15 years, and she’s picked up a lot of tricks and tips along the way. “I wish I had known all of this when I got into the business,” she jokes.
For busy recruiters who’ve longed for someone else to do some of their screening interviews, a machine has stepped up to the plate.
Asynchronous interviews let candidates answer a set of predetermined questions on video and submit their recorded answers at their convenience. Often called one-way video interviews, asynchronous interviews can speed up the hiring process and give candidates the flexibility to submit their answers when it works for them.
