Using LinkedIn as a Recruitment tool to Explode Your Business

LinkedIn was founded as a recruitment tool. Over its many years of advancement it has moved away from being primarily a recruitment tool, to being a platform for all aspects of business.

LinkedIn however, has certainly not lost its edge for recruitment over its many updates and changes.

Recruiter Premium Is still available, which offers a large array of features bundled together. For example you get InMail tokens to spend on contacting potential candidates, as well as full access to premium search filters and network visibility.

LinkedIn offers a platform for posting job advertisements, which works two ways. Not only does LinkedIn send the advert to people who have matching criteria, but people can search for the criteria themselves.

Being able to organise potential candidates into the pipeline for a full team all using recruiter, allows candidates to be chosen carefully, considered at multiple fronts, and then contacted via InMail. The entire process is very personal and easy to manage, for a fraction of what a recruitment company would charge for the same service.

Tough Talk

If you can’t afford to spend money on premium features, simply use the advanced search facility to comb through candidates manually. Send out connection requests, or pay a single InMail token to contact the people you find. If you’re not willing to spend some time to filter through candidates, you’ve already lost.

Tool Tip

Don’t waste money with a recruitment company, and try to recruit your own staff. If you spend some money on job posts, LinkedIn offers a 10 applicant guarantee, if it is your first job posting and you fill out sufficient information. Make use of these offers, and save money by recruiting through LinkedIn.
