  12. 12. 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.

  17. 17. 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. For more passive talent tips and best practices, visit: talent.linkedin.com/passivetalent.
