LinkedIn
LinkedIn Talent Solutions is the best way to search & find qualified candidates. For profiles with fewer qualifications, there is often little information filled in by the candidates (only job titles) and it takes a lot more phone screening to find the candidate with all the required skills. The statistics tab helps you learn more about our use of the platform and what our response rates are. The saved searches are really convenient and help us to easily expand our network of candidates.

I can manage candidates from the search to moving them to projects to messaging in one place, which makes it a more streamlined and efficient process. If a candidate does not respond to an outreach message from my LinkedIn recruiter mailbox, I can then send a connection request and a message directing them, to the recruiter message.

Pros
LinkedIn
  • UI - Pretty easy to navigate once you get the hang of it.
  • Large platform of candidates. I can't find a better platform for finding professional candidates
  • Ability to post jobs - easy to use. Attracts more of the right qualified candidates than any platform that I have posted on.

  • The scheduler is my most favorite part of Recruiter. Super easy and organized to use.
  • It also can integrate with my applicant tracking system when and if I hire from LinkedIn Recruiter.
  • The fact that you can see an applicants full profile gives more information than just a resume when selecting candidates to interview.

Cons
LinkedIn
  • The cost is significant, especially for the more robust options
  • You can't easily collaborate with team members unless they have a license as well
  • Support tickets can take awhile to resolve, I've had one (bug with spend tracking) that took 2 months to resolve

  • For some reason, whenever I click "View in Recruiter" it takes me to the project summary screen instead of that candidate's profile in Recruiter
  • It would be nice if candidates got automatically moved to the appropriate stage when an action is taken (ie "Contacted" after sending them a message)

Alternatives Considered

I think the main thing about Linkedin is how global it has become. People might not know of other tools but they know about LinkedIn and everyone wants to be there or is learning that they have to be there to get good opportunities and build a network by using social platforms that aren't just focused on the social aspect.

LinkedIn Recruiter has the largest reach globally. I mean, if you're not on LinkedIn, do you even exist? ;) It is the only real game in town for one-stop-shopping for candidates. The service is premium, and so is the price. However, there is nothing that I'm aware of in the market that can compete.

Return on Investment
LinkedIn
  • The majority of our ROI come from referrals, but LinkedIn Talent Solutions has also helped us find candidates. If they referral doesn't pan out, then Workable is usually next, followed by LinkedIn.
  • LinkedIn Talent Solutions has gotten more expensive and has eliminated the Small Business offering so we did not renew. It just became to costly based on the ROI.
  • Clients always like that we have access to post jobs to LinkedIn Talent Solutions because they consider LinkedIn legitimate and professional.

  • Refined search for the appropriate candidates.
  • Emails sent are not sure to be delivered as there is no notifications.
  • Not worth the amount spent in getting the service.
  • Contact information unavailable to get in touch.
  • Limits in the daily use of InMail.
