The Modern Recruiter’s Guide
Stacy Donovan Zapar

“A modern recruiter is one who
is targeted,builds relationships
and knows how to not only find
candidates but also get them
to respond!” 
Matt Charney
Managing Editor
RecruitingBlogs.com
“To me, being a modern recruiter
means being a business generalist,
not a functional specialist.  It’s no
longer about matching candidates to
jobs - it’s about aligning your talent
and organizational strategic objectives
to ensure your employer recruits and
retains the talent necessary to stay
competitive and cutting edge today
- and tomorrow.  Being a modern
recruiter doesn’t mean just filling
requisitions or building a pipeline - it
means combining sales, marketing,
technology and human capital
management best practices together
to make sure you’re best serving the
needs of your candidates and clients
while maximizing your ROI and the
business’ bottom line.”
Steve Levy
Principle: Recruiting,Talent, & Social Media
Consultant

“What is a modern recruiter? Someone
who is honest first, knowledgeable second,
consistent third, humble fourth, helpful fifth,
and personable sixth – of course these are all
valid in other orders.Too many people who
call themselves recruiters don’t take pride
in their craft; aren’t continuously learning;
believe they have ESP-like abilities to read a
person’s body language during an interview
or read between the lines of a resume; and
recoil when asked questions about how they
do their jobs.These are the folks who came
into the profession because the barrier to entry
is low; the true professional modern recruiter
– doesn’t matter where they practice their
craft – believes that they didn’t find recruiting
but recruiting found them and feel a personal
responsibility to steward the profession.
Excellence first, paycheck second.”
Jessica Miller-Merrell
Founder & Chief Research
Workology
“Being a modern recruiter
means being flexible and
creative and finding new ways
to locate the best and most
qualified talent before the
competition gets their hands
on them. Some of the best
recruiters are internet hackers
and researchers pushing the
boundaries of search and the
future of recruiting.”
Josh Bersin
Principle & Founder
Bersin by Deloitte
“The recruitment arms race has
escalated and attracting top talent
remains one of the most important
roles in HR.Today’s recruiter
must be a marketer, sales person,
career coach, and psychologist all
in one. Using tools like LinkedIn,
recruiting teams can develop
campaigns, manage their brand,
source candidates, and reach out for
referrals like never before. But, at
the core of it all, recruiters have to
know their own company, work with
hiring managers, and really know
how to assess people. If they can
bring this all together, they can be
superstars in their organization.”
Jennifer McClure
President & Chief Talent Strategist
Unbridled Talent, LLC
“Modern recruiters are experts
at identifying talent, building
relationships and creating
connections with candidates
and potential candidates using
all of the tools and information
available to us - including in-
person networking, the phone,
social media and mobile. Finding
talent is only the first step. Modern
recruiters make the company’s
talent brand come to life through
the candidate’s experience and
interactions with them!”
Andy Headworth
Managing Director & Social
Recruiting Strategist
Sirona Consulting Ltd
“In today’s world of ‘information
overload,’ where social tools and
platforms have made it easier
to identify people, there are two
key skills that a modern recruiter
needs.The first is to be able to
quickly assimilate information
from multiple sources, putting
it into context and establishing
relevance.The second and most
important skill is the ability to
communicate effectively - both
with clients and prospective
candidates - across ALL available
channels, especially the phone.”
Brendan Browne
Sr. Director of Global Talent
Acquisition
LinkedIn
“The recruiting organization
that figures out how to extract
the value of the web’s people
data and how to then build
a recruiting team model to
operationalize this at scale
will define the future of talent
acquisition.  The modern recruiter
in this new world needs to be a
business person first, complete
with the ability, gravitas, and
intellect  to influence and advise
hiring managers and leaders at all
levels with data in hand at every
step.”

The modern Recruiter's Guide LinkedIn essentials

  • 1. LinkedIn Essentials The Modern Recruiter’s Guide
  • 2. Stacy Donovan Zapar Candidate Experience & Engagement Strategist Zappos Family of Companies “A modern recruiter is one who is targeted,builds relationships and knows how to not only find candidates but also get them to respond!”  Matt Charney Managing Editor RecruitingBlogs.com “To me, being a modern recruiter means being a business generalist, not a functional specialist.  It’s no longer about matching candidates to jobs - it’s about aligning your talent and organizational strategic objectives to ensure your employer recruits and retains the talent necessary to stay competitive and cutting edge today - and tomorrow.  Being a modern recruiter doesn’t mean just filling requisitions or building a pipeline - it means combining sales, marketing, technology and human capital management best practices together to make sure you’re best serving the needs of your candidates and clients while maximizing your ROI and the business’ bottom line.” Steve Levy Principle: Recruiting,Talent, & Social Media Consultant outside-the-box Consulting “What is a modern recruiter? Someone who is honest first, knowledgeable second, consistent third, humble fourth, helpful fifth, and personable sixth – of course these are all valid in other orders.Too many people who call themselves recruiters don’t take pride in their craft; aren’t continuously learning; believe they have ESP-like abilities to read a person’s body language during an interview or read between the lines of a resume; and recoil when asked questions about how they do their jobs.These are the folks who came into the profession because the barrier to entry is low; the true professional modern recruiter – doesn’t matter where they practice their craft – believes that they didn’t find recruiting but recruiting found them and feel a personal responsibility to steward the profession. Excellence first, paycheck second.” Jessica Miller-Merrell Founder & Chief Research Workology “Being a modern recruiter means being flexible and creative and finding new ways to locate the best and most qualified talent before the competition gets their hands on them. Some of the best recruiters are internet hackers and researchers pushing the boundaries of search and the future of recruiting.”
  • 3. Josh Bersin Principle & Founder Bersin by Deloitte “The recruitment arms race has escalated and attracting top talent remains one of the most important roles in HR.Today’s recruiter must be a marketer, sales person, career coach, and psychologist all in one. Using tools like LinkedIn, recruiting teams can develop campaigns, manage their brand, source candidates, and reach out for referrals like never before. But, at the core of it all, recruiters have to know their own company, work with hiring managers, and really know how to assess people. If they can bring this all together, they can be superstars in their organization.” Jennifer McClure President & Chief Talent Strategist Unbridled Talent, LLC “Modern recruiters are experts at identifying talent, building relationships and creating connections with candidates and potential candidates using all of the tools and information available to us - including in- person networking, the phone, social media and mobile. Finding talent is only the first step. Modern recruiters make the company’s talent brand come to life through the candidate’s experience and interactions with them!” Andy Headworth Managing Director & Social Recruiting Strategist Sirona Consulting Ltd “In today’s world of ‘information overload,’ where social tools and platforms have made it easier to identify people, there are two key skills that a modern recruiter needs.The first is to be able to quickly assimilate information from multiple sources, putting it into context and establishing relevance.The second and most important skill is the ability to communicate effectively - both with clients and prospective candidates - across ALL available channels, especially the phone.” Brendan Browne Sr. Director of Global Talent Acquisition LinkedIn “The recruiting organization that figures out how to extract the value of the web’s people data and how to then build a recruiting team model to operationalize this at scale will define the future of talent acquisition.  The modern recruiter in this new world needs to be a business person first, complete with the ability, gravitas, and intellect  to influence and advise hiring managers and leaders at all levels with data in hand at every step.”
