Even though it's December that hasn't stopped the recruiting headlines from rolling. Here's my latest roundup of who and what is making news. Stay in touch with everything I write here.

LinkedIn Revamps Its Jobs Listings With Big Data Analytics: you can now see more data about the company, who works there, and how you compare to previous applicants. The new look will be rolled out to 10% of LinkedIn’s English audience today, covering the U.S., Canada, India, the UK and Australia. Other regions will get it later. Their goal is a better job hunting experience which in my opion is long overdue. Ive never been a fan of their job search user experience. Now you can get an insider look at the company hiring trends and better see who works there. It sounds like the new features will be quite useful. [article]
