On the surface, LinkedIn is a place to build and engage with your professional network. But, it is also THE PLACE to be if you are recruiting talent.
TruPath recruiters discuss why they love using LinkedIn Recruiter - a LinkedIn product.
1. Why do you enjoy using LI a recruiting tool?
"LinkedIn is a good way to leverage social media to find professional/higher level candidates, as opposed to Facebook or other social media sites."
2. What is your favorite LI feature?
3. What is one LI tip you would like to share that might help other recruiters or hiring managers?
"Personalize your messages when reaching out to candidates. We all know that the first prerequisite to hiring someone is sparking their interest. Your odds of getting a reply go up exponentially with personalization. This not only helps establish a relationship with the candidate going forward, but it illustrates that you as a recruiter or hiring manager have spent time studying their profile, and are genuinely interested in helping them find the next great opportunity."
"Keep your profile professional, your posts consistent, continually build your network, reach out often, and keep your "likes" and "shares" active."
"When you're searching LinkedIn profiles, don't limit yourself to those who are 'Open to new opportunities'. Frequently, passive candidates will be open to the right opportunity..."
