Guest Speaker: Jim Durbin, The Social Media Headhunter
LinkedIn is now a required skill for recruiters. Managers expect recruiters to use the platform to find candidates quickly, but recent changes in the search and profile sections are making it harder for junior recruiters to compete with the market.
Jim Durbin, the Social Media Headhunter, has put together a LinkedIn class intended for the novice and the intermediate user with practical step-by-step instruction, drawn from his experience training over 6000 recruiters and executives. This hands-on instruction from a current recruiter will provide you take-ways you can use immediately to find your candidates.
We'll look at how the Semantic Search Bar can be used to find keywords. We'll look at the changes in the Advanced Search screen that require a new way of searching inside the platform. And we'll address how to use both free and premium accounts to their fullest capabilities. Finally, we'll use search engines to quickly build lists of candidates with their contact information.
In this 90 minute webinar you will learn:
- Search techniques to find candidates other recruiters miss.
- Profile tips that increase the number of responses.
- How to look for LinkedIn profiles on search engines, including a new search term even experienced recruiters don't know.
- 360 degree sourcing using a free account.
- Tools to find contact information and email addresses.
