Depending on the rate of adoption, I think this could transform the job application process which – as anyone who has applied for a position online can tell you – is a fairly repetitive process. This capability from LinkedIn will allow a job seeker to essentially syndicate their professional profile and within a matter of a few clicks get it into a talent acquisition system quickly, not to mention enable easier networking with those people who might be in your network at the aforementioned company. I’m only surprised that LinkedIn didn’t roll this new capability out with a few technology partners (i.e., Taleo, BrassRing, etc.) signed up to use this as a feature in their systems. Given their market reach I would hope that is on the radar for the good people at LinkedIn or widespread acceptance will be an uphill battle.
Who is responsible for the debt crisis? || “The Chart That Should Accompany All Discussions of the Debt Ceiling” http://ow.ly/5Nb8T
This chart is not intended to cause vigorous debate about who is to blame for our current predicament here in the United States, nor is it intended to stimulate a dialog about whether or not we should be concerned about having a debt ceiling. The intention here is to provide a moment of reflection on how we have come to arrive at this place together and the decisions we made about what is important to us as a nation over the past 10 or so years.
