LinkedIn launches AI-assisted tools

Share post:

LinkedIn has launched AI-assisted candidate discovery and AI-powered coaching within LinkedIn Learning to transform job hunting and skill development.

The AI-assisted candidate discovery for recruiters promises better natural language searches, less focus on university credentials and job titles, and prompts on how a role could be tailored around a candidate’s strengths and constraints. While the AI-powered coaching is a subscriber-only LinkedIn Learning, that comes with a chatbot service to coach workers through tough moments or career development.

LinkedIn CEO Ryan Roslansky told the Talent Connect Summit that even if you’re not changing jobs often, whatever job you’re in will likely be changing around you, impacting the value of your degree. He also said that 72% of American executives surveyed by LinkedIn said soft skills are more valuable to their organization than AI skills.

LinkedIn is also backing an assertion with data gathered from workers at 63 million organizations that Artificial Intelligence (AI) is reshaping the landscape of job hunting and skill development, potentially diminishing the significance of traditional four-year college degrees on resumes.

In AI-driven workplaces, employers will need to treat up-skilling investments as a “critical priority” rather than a perk, according to LinkedIn executives. This is because AI is automating many routine and knowledge-based tasks, leaving workers with a need to develop new skills, particularly human and people-oriented skills.
