Make LinkedIn Work For You

Without a doubt finding the perfect position is a challenge.  And for recruiters finding the ideal candidate is a challenge for them.  Without a doubt resumes, cover letters, interviews and networking are primary tools and practices used in the hiring/recruiting process.  For many recruiters LinkedIn is an additional mechanism that is consistently used for hiring purposes.  Not only are they posting jobs on LinkedIn, but certainly spending time looking at prime candidate’s profiles to fill their positions.  Sometimes the LinkedIn profile could provide a candidate an opportunity to apply for a position.  Or on occasion a hiring manager might be looking at multiple profiles to narrow down a list of candidates.  The hiring manager might be looking deeper into a candidate to discover points that aren’t on a resume, cover letter or may not have come up in an interview.  Given all of this information click on the link below to learn more about how to attract recruiters to your page.
