Moreover, the professional networking platform also said that it is starting to test AI-written job descriptions.
In such cases, hiring managers will only need to enter the job title, company name, and a few other basic details, and LinkedIn will generate a detailed draft of a relevant job description, the report said.
Meanwhile, LinkedIn has introduced a new feature called — “collaborative articles”, which will use “AI-powered conversation starters” to begin discussions between “experts” on the platform.
The company will match articles with relevant members based on its skills graph, inviting them to contribute context, extra information, and advice for the articles.
The company believes that the system will make it easier for people to contribute their perspectives because “starting a conversation is harder than joining one”.
Just like any other post on the feed, users can share, react to, and save collaborative articles. Additionally, the company has clarified that only select users can contribute to the collaborative articles.
For the unversed, LinkedIn has crossed 100 million members in India. With a 56 percent growth in its member base over the last 3 years, India has solidified its position as the second-largest market for LinkedIn globally. The largest share of members in India are from software & IT, followed by manufacturing, and corporate services.
