Likelihood to Recommend

LinkedIn Elevate

I would strongly recommend LinkedIn Elevate to a colleague and have even pushed an initiative to my manager to get each member on my sales team an account. LinkedIn Elevate is perfectly suited for keeping your LinkedIn content and Twitter content fresh, up to date and relevant. It is so crucial for folks in the technology space to be active online, share with their connections that they have interesting articles and videos to share, and are worth connecting with to collaborate in the future. There is one scenario where Elevate is likely not appropriate and that is trying to use it as just a content calendar tool for any and all social platforms. You can connect your Facebook if you use that for business, but Elevate is really better suited for scheduling content to be shared on your social networks of LI and Twitter to show your industry - whatever it may be - that you are relevant. It isn't as good for sharing funny videos/lighter social on Facebook for example.

ZipRecruiter is a great platform for entry/low-level positions as it's a very popular job board that can stretch to thousands of potential applicants. When it comes to more senior roles, because it's incredibly easy for anyone to apply, it's time-consuming and difficult to find a "needle in a haystack" for an open position

ZipRecruiter

  • They make the process of posting positions relatively easy. While there are plenty of details to help round out your job posting, the UI is simple and easy to use. Sharing to company social media is available as well.
  • Their dedicated account managers are extremely helpful and usually available to speak with you right away.
  • The pricing packages and flexibility of payment options make it an attractive option in this space.

Cons

LinkedIn Elevate

  • If I schedule an article to be posted on LinkedIn and want to go back to edit it to have it posted on Twitter as well at the same scheduled time, this is hard and shouldn't be
  • For filtering content so the user just sees articles they are interested in, some of the filters are too broad. I work in Cloud. Cloud happens to also cover things like AI and Data, which aren't in my specialty. I wish my articles and content were just cloud software.
  • The pane where the user can see all scheduled posts could have a different view. They are shown in a list and aren't easy to drag/drop and change. This would be super useful on the desktop browser version.

  • Quality of candidates - one of the reasons we stopped using this platform is the lack of quality/qualified candidates. ZipRecruiter has an option where candidates can one-click on a type of job and their resume is posted to a variety of roles. These tools tend to make recruiters cringe, as resumes are splattered across job postings that aren't truly related to their skills. More filters for job applicants would be incredibly helpful, especially as the platform grows!
  • Price - for smaller businesses that don't hire hundreds of people, the price seemed a bit high. It just wasn't worth it for us.
  • Overall, just more ways to filter criteria and candidates. I struggled with finding filters based on location and/or if candidates were willing to relocate. We had candidates applying from all over that had no intention of relocating.

Results. The bottom line is the results we are getting. We are seeing not only quality applications, but quality hires that can directly be tied to our use of ZipRecruiter. The ROI is second to none - a simple and easy to use tool that is driving healthcare professionals to my various clients.

ZipRecruiter is very user-friendly and is extremely reliable when searching for new talent. There are numerous features to help you when you have questions about a posting or your profile. The filtering process is awesome and you have so many ways to find the right talent with the screening questions provided by ZipRecruiter.

The support team--or our dedicated account manager--was great and super responsive.

Have not had to utilize support recently, but in past instances they have reached out within 12 hours to help rectify any problems or answer any questions about features and functionality. The only issue I ever had with them was trying to clarify, when they previously advertised that they posted on 200+ job boards, if that meant that your job would for sure be posted on each job board. Turns out, by the way, that they only guarantee distribution, not posting

Alternatives Considered

LinkedIn Elevate

Hootsuite is the master of content management and calendar building, but it lacks the repository of articles from experts across your company! I also secretly am less of a fan of the UI in the content calendar view of Hootsuite. LinkedIn Elevate is less cluttered to the eye, but their scheduled post page needs improvement. It should be way easier to change times and add networks to already scheduled posts before they go out.

ZipRecruiter

ZipRecruiter is great to use for job postings and searching candidates. However, you cannot upload and manage candidates in the same way as Microsoft Dynamics or Workable. As job board access, it is effective, but as an ATS, it is not as useful. I would recommend using it in tandem with another software

Return on Investment

  • Increased employee advocacy
  • Gained us a few new followers
  • Increased social engagement

  • When we first started, and didn't have an ATS Zip was our go-to tool. It keeps all the resumes there attached to each job if you choose that option. When we switched to using our own ATS, it allows us to post the URL in the job posting. This saved us a ton of time in both regards.
  • The basic use of Zip is very affordable compared to other older job sites (CareerBuilder and Monster), and it posts to multiple sites in one click. Huge time saver.
