LinkedIn Training Course For Employers

January 20, 2016 |  by  |  Linkedin Blog

LinkedIn is an extremely useful tool for employers who want to advertise their vacancies and search for potential employees. The use of LinkedIn opens up opportunities for them to search for people with specific kinds of experience or qualifications. There’s a large amount of CV-like data on people’s profiles, which allows you to easily gauge whether to contact someone for an interview, saving you a lot of time and trouble. Keeping your own profile and company profile up to date is also important, since anyone whose profile you visit can also see yours.shutterstock_14995762


You can contact anyone you’re interested in taking on via InMail. This provides you with a very personal way of contacting people, giving you more chance of finding a long-term employee who fits in with your company’s values. Costs are also a lot less than a recruitment company would charge for the same service.

As well as this, there’s a specific forum for posting job advertisements. This is to allow potential candidates to submit their CV to you directly. LinkedIn will send the advert to people who match your criteria, and also allow people to search for the criteria themselves.


Tough Talk:

You can use the advanced search tool to search through candidates yourself if you aren’t willing spend money on the premium features, and send people contact requests manually. You will definitely need to spend some time searching through suitable candidates, but it will be well worth it – finding an employee that is an ideal match for the role, and therefore more likely to be long-term, is essential to save you spending time and money repeatedly replacing and training new staff.


Top LinkedIn Tip:

Recruiting your own staff via LinkedIn can save money and is more reliable – you can personally ensure that only suitable candidates are contacted, while also expanding your network of useful contacts. If it is your first job posting and you fill out sufficient information, LinkedIn offers a 10 applicant guarantee for a fraction of what a recruitment company would charge. For these reasons, recruiting via LinkedIn is highly recommended.screenshot
