I'm really starting to enjoy my venture into using the collberative nature of Web 2.0 to increase my network as well as knowledge. Today in one of the ERE discussion threads I follow there was a link to one of Shally Steckerl's podcasts - this one related to using the new "Company Profile" feature of LinkedIn that allows you to get all sorts of good information about a company from LinkedIn. You can see who they've recently hired, who's been promoted, what companies people come from and go to from that company & a lot of other very useful analytics that will help a recruiter get the landscape of an organization (at least in terms of the people in the organization that use LinkedIn). Great stuff - thanks Shally!
Here's the URL to Total Picture Radio: http://totalpicture.com/
Shally's podcast is about 1/2 way down the list.
One of these days I'll learn how to make that a live link and/or embed the podcast directly into this post. I also saw that Shally's recent blog on this site talks about these features so you might want to check that out as well.
