For LinkedIn and its ATS customers, the deal means increased, free-of-charge exposure for their recruitment ads to Talent.com’s 75 million monthly visitors.
LinkedIn didn’t say how many customers use its ATS, and Talent.com president Michael O’Dell (LinkedIn profile) said he couldn’t give a number.
“We wanted to partner with them, as it gives Talent.com another way to have a low-friction relationship with recruitment advertisers,” O’Dell told the AIM Group. “ Today the partnership allows for automatic and immediate addition of a client’s jobs to our organic search listings. Future iterations will hopefully add the ability to sponsor postings too. Anytime we can put our products into a recruiters desktop environment, we consider it a win.”
