    My agency is using LinkedIn to post job announcements for hard-to-fill jobs. I’m looking into the feasibility of using LinkedIn more proactively. I’ve had a few discussions with some internal stakeholders and there is concern that we could run afoul of the Privacy Act of 1974. Are there any Federal HR folks using LinkedIn Recruiter? If so please get in touch with me—I’d like to hear about your experiences with it and how you address Privacy Act compliance.

    I know NIH uses it quite frequently. You can reach out to Brian Rabin who is there and Dave Ueijo who used to be at NIH and is at CFPB
