In partnership with investment industry firms and universities, the initiative aims to supercharge early stage companies and help keep this vital sector of the economy on track. The #ISOLATIONINTERN platform connects data science, marketing and development talent so that start-ups can engage them on a part-time basis.

• LinkedIn is testing a new feature to help talent professionals find and hire quality candidates faster. In a virtual situation, LinkedIn’s ‘video intro’ feature helps recruiters evaluate a candidate’s communication and soft skills before the first interview.

Once talent professionals start receiving applications for a job posting, they can invite the most qualified candidates to answer up to two questions from a list of options, such as, “Tell me about yourself?”, “What is your greatest strength?” and “Describe your most challenging project?”. Candidates can choose to submit answers via a quick video recording or written response.
