    • LinkedIn 2013 Global Recruiting Trends 12 Our favorite tips: Using LinkedIn to source and attract high-quality candidates 1 It all starts with your profile. Your profile is your first opportunity to build your personal brand as a recruiting professional. Add a picture, get creative with your headline, and feature recommendations.  Your  profile  summary  should  articulate  why  you’re  a  trusted   partner. Think BRAND, not resume. 2 Engage your followers. Make sure your firm has a Company Page on LinkedIn, where members can follow your organization. Use Targeted Status Updates to share brand messaging, company news and open positions with your follower base – you can target by industry, function, geography and more. 3 Get involved in LinkedIn Groups. There are more than 2M Groups on LinkedIn. Join recruiting groups or those relevant to your key talent pools to keep your finger on the pulse. Participate in a few to brand yourself as an expert. And consider creating a group about your firm or industry to drive your company brand, build pipeline, and even source. For more tips and best practices, visit: talent.linkedin.com.
    • LinkedIn 2013 Global Recruiting Trends 13 The  passive  talent  “capabilities  gap” Firms must close it to remain competitive 3
    • LinkedIn 2013 Global Recruiting Trends 14 Passive talent is the #2 long-lasting trend “What  do  you  consider  to  be  the  three  most  essential  and  long-lasting trends in recruiting for professional roles?” Utilizing social and professional networks 69% 70% Finding better ways to source passive candidates 65% 56% Using an internal database to manage talent leads 39% 39% Boosting referral programs 30% 25% Reducing dependence on traditional job boards 24% 21% Posting jobs online 18% 24% Using mobile for recruiting 18% 18% Upgrading branding/marketing for staffing firms 16% 21% Top long-lasting trends
    • LinkedIn 2013 Global Recruiting Trends 15 56%34% 9% 1% 90% of firms focus on passive candidates; more than half say passive talent is central to their recruiting strategy “To  what  extent  does  your  recruiting  organization  focus  on  hiring  passive  talent?  (‘Passive  talent:’  individuals  who   are  not  actively  looking  for  a  job).” To some extent Very much so – it’s  central  to   our recruiting strategy Not much Not at all – we focus on active candidates only Focus on passive candidate recruiting
    • LinkedIn 2013 Global Recruiting Trends 16 1. We get enough quality active candidates already 34% 2.  We  haven’t  been  successful  at  it  in  the  past 28% 3.

    • LinkedIn 2013 Global Recruiting Trends 17 Our favorite tips: Engaging passive candidates 1 Immerse  yourself  in  the  candidate’s  world. Get smarter on the industry, using sources like LinkedIn Today to keep up with hot  relevant  topics.  Research  your  prospect’s  current  role  and  leverage  mutual   connections when possible. 2 Build relationships, avoid being transactional. Send fewer, more targeted InMails.  Compliment  profiles  sincerely,  and  ‘dangle   a  carrot’  to  lure  them  in  rather  than  blasting  out  lengthy  job  descriptions.  Ask  to   connect and continue the dialogue. 3 Listen and adapt. Invite candidates to talk about themselves, uncover their needs/motivations, and keep detailed notes on their profiles or within LinkedIn Recruiter at every touchpoint.  Reflect  on  their  input  as  you  explain  why  your  client’s  opportunity  is   right for them.
