Looking at Staffing Strategically
The staffing industry's unique access to a wide range of
workers is one of the essential benefits it offers clients. By
working with staffing firms, HR professionals can quickly find
individuals with specific skill sets or hard-to-find work
experience. Those individuals can be brought on board for a

supports this notion. The report found "employers that have

4 Ways Small Business Can Leverage LinkedIn's
LinkedIn recently launched a number of new, Facebook-
esque share features. Now, in addition to Q&A's, groups and
personal messages, you can send images, article excerpts,
blog posts and other content to your professional
connections in much the same way that you would with your
personal connections on other social networks.
But the way you'd use LinkedIn sharing for your small
business is likely going to be a lot different from how you'd
use your personal Facebook account. While most folks love
to pass on relevant, interesting and valuable links, some
content will be more appropriate than other content for
sharing with your business contacts. Here are a few ways
you can maximize the benefits of LinkedIn shares.
1. Stay Top-of-Mind
Posting once a day, and syndicating that post to your
business' Twitter and Facebook accounts, can help you
remain fresh in the minds of your connections and
customers. Just remember to not over-share; users will be
quickly turned off if their timelines on every network are
flooded with updates from you.
2. Crowdsource Solutions and Get Feedback
If you've got ideas you want to run by your peers or a
nagging business problem that needs a solution, LinkedIn
groups and Q&A are popular and effective ways to get
3. Promote Special Events You Host or Attend
Whether you are going to a charity dinner or hosting a
meetup for your clients, a string of well-times LinkedIn
shares can be great for raising community awareness, driving
participation or soliciting volunteers or donations.
4. Lead Local and Industry Thought
If you've got an article in an online publication or a blog post
you're particularly proud of, LinkedIn sharing can be a great
way to broadcast that content to your network. Be sure to
include a personal comment on why you're sharing the link,
and tailor the excerpt section to include something
descriptive and appealing, such as a quotation.
