“Microsoft buys LinkedIn for €26bn: So where does it sit in comparison with four other mega tech deals?”

"LinkedIn is only one of the tools that Executive Search firms may use to identify companies and potential candidates. Although Microsoft's acquisitions of LinkedIn may give both systems more synergy and ease of use for Researchers, Executive Search firms need to use a number of other tools to assist in identifying and targeting suitable candidates for Senior Executive positions and Board roles"

said Peter Waite, Chairman of InterSearch Worldwide.
