The Recruitosphere erupted on Monday with the news of Microsoft’s $26.2 billion acquisition of LinkedIn. The dust has yet to settle, and there's still a number of questions around what this means for the talent acquisition industry.

Entelo CEO Jon Bischke joined Bloomberg TV alongside Shira Ovide, a Bloomberg Gadfly columnist, to discuss the implications, the greater market context of the merger, and the future of LinkedIn within Microsoft. They cover:

  • Why this may be a sales technology-related acquisition, as opposed to a recruitment-based one
  • The impact of the acquisition on tech's competitive landscape
  • Concerns for current LinkedIn customers
