Talent is THE driving force for success and economic opportunity; that holds true for both individual professionals and the companies they work for. At our core, LinkedIn is in the business of connecting talent with opportunity at massive scale. We are able to do this in an unprecedented way due to the convergence of two unique trends:Scalable infrastructure that connects hundreds of millions of people in milliseconds, andExtraordinary shifts in online behavior related to the way people represent their identities, build their networks and share information and knowledge. This is fundamentally changing the world in the way we live, play, and, of course, work. And that’s where LinkedIn is focused: On fundamentally transforming the way the world works.
For us, fundamentally changing the way the world works begins with our mission statement: To connect the world’s professionals to make them more productive and successful. This means not only helping people to find their dream jobs, but also enabling them to be great at the jobs they’re already in.
We’re making great strides toward our mission:LinkedIn has over 238 million members, and we’re now adding more than two members per second. This is the fastest rate of absolute member growth in the company’s history. Sixty-five percent of LinkedIn members are currently located outside of the United States.LinkedIn counts executives from all 2013 Fortune 500 companies as members; its corporate talent solutions are used by 90 of the Fortune 100 companies.More than 3 million companies have LinkedIn Company Pages.LinkedIn members did over 5.7 billion professionally-oriented searches on the platform in 2012.[See http://press.linkedin.com/about for a complete list of LinkedIn facts and stats]
Our most important core value is that members come first. We develop products across three dimensions to deliver value to our members: 1.Professional Identity, which helps professionals connect, find, and be found;LinkedIn is the most powerful, professionally-oriented search engine on the planet. In becoming a member, you are carving out a piece of digital real estate and creating your professional profile of record. When you need to find someone, connect with someone, do a business deal or tap professional knowledge, LinkedIn is the place to go. 2.Insights, which help people get the information and knowledge they need to be great at what they do; A fire hose of unique and valuable information, knowledge, data and insight flow through the LinkedIn network as a result of our members connecting and sharing.Our job is to build products that derive information and insights from that data for our members to help them be better at what they do every day. Examples of some of these products are LI Today, Groups, Homepage3.And Everywhere, which ensures that our platform works wherever our members work, regardless of where they are, on the Web or off. We live in an age where we can no longer expect our members to be tethered to their desks. We live in a mobile, ubiquitous computer age. LinkedIn is focused on providing members with access to their professional identity and insights wherever they may be -- whether it is on and off the desktop or on and off LinkedIn.com. We know our members will still visit other sites, and we want to continue to scale our API offerings to provide value to our members no matter where they are.If you’re taking time to build your professional identity, network and knowledge..the sum total of our value proposition is that LinkedIn will enable our members to find dream jobs and be great at jobs they’re already in.

Emergence of social media People open to sharing and consuming informationExample, restaurant reviews
[THIS SLIDE IS A BUILD]An average of 30 percent of unique visiting members come through mobile apps, versus just 19 percent a year ago (Q1 2013 earnings) More than 100,000 developers are using LinkedIn APIs to create innovative tools and services for professionals.
In order to meet your key TA objectives [reference their specific objectives, which you should have already uncovered during discovery], we should first take a look at the evolution of recruiting and where your organization is today. Companies are evolving away from the traditional recruiting model and putting a few foundational elements in place to become more efficient and strategic. In doing so, they’re developing sourcing expertise in-house,using automation to personalize their job opportunities, ensuring the right talent brand is in front of the right individuals and arming their recruiters with access to the right talent pools. (Note: From bottom to top, each row in the framework represents a recruiting capability):SOURCING: From agency reliance to developing in-house sourcing and pipelining expertiseJOBS: From post-and-pray to targeted & personalized job matchingBRAND:From no consideration of talent brand to developing an employer branding strategyMETRICS: From no metrics established to using talent data to improve recruiting effectiveness and ultimately shape business strategyWhere do you think you are in this evolution? [Have a conversation with the client and calibrate where they think they are in this process vs. what you think and come to a mutual agreement. Anchor them so that you can create a vision of where they can go next.]:Many clients will start at the “Developing” stageThe LinkedIn Core Solution helps get them to “Foundational.” This is a necessary first step.Clients already using the LinkedIn Core products can then think about more advanced strategies to get to the “Strategic” stage in the longer term (e.g., through Student recruiting, Campaign media, Branding Accelerator, Followers, etc).
By becoming more strategic and less reactive, companies are able to increase the efficiency of their teams and increase quality of hire. [Link this statement back to the client’s explicit goals & challenges].Remaining status quo won’t help solve the issues we discussed.
