Reimagining Hiring and Learning with the Power of AI — from by Hari Srinivasan

That’s why today we’re piloting new tools like our new release of Recruiter 2024 and LinkedIn Learning’s AI-powered coaching experience to help with some of the heavy lifting so HR professionals can focus on what matters most.

“AI is quickly transforming recruitment, training, and many other HR practices,” says Josh Bersin, industry analyst and CEO of The Josh Bersin Company. “LinkedIn’s new features in Recruiter 2024 and LinkedIn Learning can massively improve recruiter productivity and help all employees build the skills they need to grow in their careers.”

By pairing generative AI with our unique insights gained from the more than 950 million professionals, 65 million companies, and 40,000 skills on our platform, we’ve reimagined our Recruiter product to help our customers find that short list of qualified candidates — faster.

From DSC:
While I’m very interested to see how Microsoft’s AI-powered LinkedIn Learning coach will impact peoples’ growth/development, I need to admit that I still approach AI and hiring/finding talent with caution. I’m sure I was weeded out by several Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) back in 2017 when I was looking for my next position — and I only applied to positions that I had the qualifications for. And if you’ve tried to get a job recently, I bet you were weeded out by an ATS as well. So while this might help recruiters, the jury is still out for me as to whether these developments are good or bad for the rest of society.

Traditional institutions of higher education may want to research these developments to see which SKILLS are in demand.

LinkedIn goes big on new AI tools for learning, recruitment, marketing and sales, powered by OpenAI — from by Ingrid Lunden

LinkedIn Learning will be incorporating AI in the form of a “learning coach” that is essentially built as a chatbot. Initially the advice that it will give will be trained on suggestions and tips, and it will be firmly in the camp of soft skills. One example: “How can I delegate tasks and responsibility effectively?”

The coach might suggest actual courses, but more importantly, it will actually also provide information, and advice, to users. LinkedIn itself has a giant catalogue of learning videos, covering both those soft skills but also actual technical skills and other knowledge needed for specific jobs. It will be interesting to see if LinkedIn extends the coach to covering that material, too.
