LinkedIn in US – To Aggregate Job Listings

With the announcement this morning that it would begin to aggregate jobs from U.S. employers, LinkedIn took a big step  to building its Economic Graph, and realizing its plan to provide all the world’s open jobs to all the world’s workers. LinkedIn

Beginning June 2nd, LinkedIn will offer hundreds of thousands of jobs aggregated from the career sites and ATS’s of U.S. employers who don’t prohibit it. These listings will supplement a nearly similar number of listings employers pay for, but they’ll be made available only to LinkedIn members who actively search for them.

Called “Limited Listings,” these aggregated jobs will be cleaned of an employer’s paid listings to avoid duplication. The differentiation between this new program and LinkedIn’s paid Job Slots and Job Posts is based on active and passive seekers. The paid program places job posts before suitable matching candidates and delivers job suggestions to specific types of candidates based on their profiles and employer criteria.

The Limited Listings, explained a company spokesman, is “targeting a very different group of candidates. They only go to active candidates… Candidates who are looking for jobs.”
