It has allowed me to streamline my job ad buying and selling process all in one dashboard.

LinkedIn Talent

There is no platform I would rather use for sourcing candidates. Instead of waiting for people to apply for your job and hoping they are qualified, you have the luxury of being able to go out and find qualified candidates yourself. LinkedIn Talent is poorly suited as a bonafide applicant tracking system. It won't be ideal for helping you track people from start to finish in the hiring life cycle, but I do not believe that has ever been the goal for this platform.

Pros

  • Makes it easy to manage job feeds.
  • Makes it easy to manage traffic acquisition from multiple publishers.
  • Easy to use reporting dashboard for you and your customers.

  • Absolutely the best in sourcing high-level candidates that are both actively and passively searching for new job opportunities. The advanced search feature, and the ridiculous number of filters, really helps you identify the best talent that is perfectly suited to the positions you need to hire for.
  • Metrics! I rely almost exclusively on InMail for my recruiting efforts for higher level positions, and LinkedIn provides a number of key metrics to ensure I am optimizing my InMail messages. Notably, you can track the positive response rate of different templates, which really helps you hone in on what type of message works best for beginning the conversation with potential candidates.
  • Project organization. Typically, I work on 3 roles at a time. Often times while sourcing for my active reqs, I come across candidates that I think are really great, but just not a great fit for anything I am working on. Being able to save them to various projects based on skill set helps me to quickly find qualified candidates as soon as a new job order opens up.

Cons

  • Need to be more open to suggestions from clients.
  • Need to get better customer service turnaround time.
  • Need more knowledgeable staff.

  • When running an advanced search, you can sort out individuals that have previously been contacted, tagged, or saved to a project. I wish they would add to this list the ability to sort out profiles that you have viewed within the last day, week, month, etc., to help me avoid accidentally looking at the same profile over and over again.
  • I wish job postings were more affordable. This is a feature that I would like to be able to take advantage of, but my understanding both from current and previous use is that job postings on LinkedIn cost an arm and a leg.
  • I would appreciate if I could either see if a profile has already been added to our resume database so I can check to see if another recruiter is actively working with them or if someone possibly has in the past. Although rare, I do sometimes run into candidates that are already working with another recruiter in a different position. It is unfortunately not feasible to check every profile against our database before sending an InMail if I hope to have an even mildly productive day.

I'm giving this a 6 only because in my 1 year at my current position we have had 3 different reps. The first was unresponsive and passive when attempting to help us. When she came out to do a demo on a new feature launch it was scattered and all over the place. The person we have now is great and is super helpful when ever we need him.

LinkedIn has cast such a wide net in positioning itself as the internet's online Rolodex, and then continued to invest in rich profiles, that it's difficult to compete with. I have considered Angellist, as there is a lot of quality on that site.
