This is my second video in my beginner’s guide to sourcing and social recruitment. Today I’m talking about LinkedIn and how to make sure that your profile is found. LinkedIn is not just a place to find candidates, it can also be a fantastic place for Candidates or Clients to find your Linkedin Profile.
It still amazes me how some professional recruiters have very poor LinkedIn profiles with tiny numbers of connections. While I have often said that the recruitment industry is becoming too reliant on LinkedIn this is not an excuse to ignore it or pretend it is not important. When Candidates or Clients search on LinkedIn or even on Google it is important that you can be found on LinkedIn. It takes just a little thought and effort to build a good LinkedIn profile and use it to great effect so for all those that need a few pointers to get the basics right I hope you’ll find my video useful.
I’m planning more of these basic videos so please check back here in the next few days.
