    From what I was told from a LinkedIn rep they will continue to dismantle these types of third party extensions. Some will continue to work – but the majority will eventually be unable to work with LinkedIn. Which is a real bummer! -Jonathan #WizardSourcer

    I’m shocked, shocked that LI would try something like this. It’s not as if they haven’t tried to limit what we recruiters can do with it practically since day one. Oh well, there’s a tool which claims to have 300M publicly acquired profiles/resumes with far fewewr requirements than our MS-subsidiary friends. Let’s see what happens….

    You don’t think this has anything to do with the fact they purchased a company that will be rolled out through LinkedIn for an addiitonal fee do you?

    An update: This ISN’T as big a deal as we may think.
    HERE’S A WORKAROUND:
    If you have LI or are sourcing LI externally: do whatever you were doing before, and download the profiles.
    1) Use Tool X to go quickly go through them (at about 1 profile or resume/second) and sort/rank them against your job description
    2) Use a non-extension version of Tool Y, Z, AA, BB, etc. to get the contact information.
    3) Go directly after the candidates that are best.
