LinkedIn CEO: The point is that employers can find you

How much more will their fashion hold social media; Where is his success? LinkedIn; THE CEO with a well-known professional networking site, gives answers to journalist Charlie Rose, which is being published by the Capital newspaper, while describing the major changes that take place in the working world.


You are thinking of possible changes that can be made in the work landscape - you have written a new book on the theme "The Alliance". What has changed?

Most people have not yet realized the reality, which is that there is no longer a concept of lifelong employment for an employer. The world is no longer working like this. Nevertheless, in the vocational training and recruitment processes, this perception of an expected permanent employment relationship continues to prevail and this does not lead to a sincere discussion. Both the candidate and the company know that it is very likely that the employee goes to work elsewhere and this omission creates mistrust. The head of design and operations LinkedIn does something I had never thought of. In the first interview she ever got, she asked the candidate what job he would like to do afterwards LinkedIn.

Where did you think this way of thinking?

Without being surprised for you or other people who know me, it puts me in the magical world of Silicon Valley. You need a network through which you can find people who will tell you: "I know a specialist for this. I have a customer for this. I know staff. I have funding. " A new technology company has a range of resources - all necessary to succeed. The speed at which you are able to bring them together is precisely the power of this network. How can we, as a society, strengthen networks in different regions to build a stronger network, promote entrepreneurship, create jobs and economic prosperity?

Does the development of social media begin to reverse? What margin for growth still exists, now that Facebook has surpassed 1 billion users?

It has 1,3 billion users, I think. Yes, changes are indeed taking place in her world ς. Υπάρχει ένα μεγάλο μέρος του πλανήτη που συνδέεται τώρα στο Internet, λόγω της διάδοσης των smartphones. Αυτό γεννά ένα διογκούμενο κύμα για όλα (τα μέσα κοινωνικής δικτύωσης). Ο τομέας αυτός νιώθει ήδη πόνους στις αρθρώσεις από το απότομο ύψος που πήρε, αλλά όσοι εισέρχονται στο Διαδίκτυο είναι πολύ περισσότεροι από όσους είναι ήδη συνδεδεμένοι.

What kind of progress has been made on LinkedIn? Do you think that people are making good use of your service?

If you ask someone "do you understand what it means to live and work in a networked world?", most people will say "of course, I have phone". In fact, in a networked world there are millions of people searching and it's all about what you do to get them to find you.

That is, the point is to find yourself through social networking means?

People say, "I'm overloaded, I do not want new connections." So you just want to send a new signal, not to create more noise. That's why you need the best filtering mechanism. But being able to find you is important. For example, my profile on LinkedIn it is mainly aimed at people who want to come to work in LinkedIn and to people looking for investments. So I made the investment in . They came and found me. They already knew we would be receptive. Of course, they may also find you crazy. And that's how LinkedIn is designed: If people come to you by introduction through someone you know and trust, then you've built a pretty good filter.
