LinkedIn Training for Recruiters 2015
LinkedIn is widely known as a professional business social networking site, where business professionals advertise and network. But, it’s also got features specifically designed to help you with recruiting, and not only that but if you know how, you can find the perfect candidate to fill your vacancy. With our independent LinkedIn consultancy’s LinkedIn training courses, you can learn how to get found on LinkedIn and get people interested in your vacancies.
When it comes to writing or rewriting your profile, you’ll find it useful to detail the vacancy along with your company details in your summary section, so that anyone who views your profile can see it. It’s also important to fill in as many of the other sections of your profile as you can, so that people can see what kind of person you are professionally. This also helps your profile to be found on more varied searches as well. If you hire a LinkedIn expert such as Dr Mark D Yates to help you write the profile, then they will make sure it is Search Engine Optimised (SEO) to rank higher in all relevant searches.
With LinkedIn, you can find very specific people to connect with, including whatever industry, education, and location you require for your vacancy. You can search for previous and current job as well, so you can hone in on the exact types of people you’re looking to hire – with the experience you’re looking for to fill the role. It’s especially useful to have connections in the areas of LinkedIn you want to find people in, as you can use the ‘get introduced’ feature to connect with people you have mutual connections with. The LinkedIn training we provide will teach you the best ways to build up the online professional network you’ll need to get the most out of LinkedIn.
Updates regarding your vacancy are going to be important to share with your LinkedIn network. You can use sponsored posts to get your message out to people you’re not connected to. With LinkedIn, you can target very specific people in the demographic and with the competence you’re looking for. Another reason you can hire a LinkedIn expert, is to write and post out regular updates to your connections’ activity feeds so that you’ll stay fresh in their minds.
Join groups in order to increase your number of connections easily. You can connect to any member of your group without the need for mutual connections, and interact with members of your group by creating and joining in with group discussions. You can join up to 50 groups, and you’ll find groups specifically designed for recruiting to join, as well as ones that contain people with the experience/skills you’re looking for. Group discussions and interactions aren’t the only useful feature of groups, as you can post jobs and promotions to all of your groups as well. LinkedIn speaker Dr Mark D Yates recommends that you join the maximum amount of groups possible and take full advantage of the opportunity this provides. You’ll find that using groups to post your jobs is one of the most useful ways to get the candidates you are searching for.
You can also post job offers out via the LinkedIn recruiter feature, which allows potential employees to search for roles that require specific levels of qualifications and experience, so you’ll only be getting responses from the types of people you need, instead of the randomised responses you’d likely get from job-search websites. So, to save you the time and effort of sorting through a full inbox, consider using LinkedIn to filter out the people you don’t need for you.
Leveraging LinkedIn’s professional features to your advantage may take some getting used to, which is why our LinkedIn consultancy provides the only academically accredited LinkedIn training. For more information on our LinkedIn training programmes, visit our website LinkedIn sign.
