Likelihood to Recommend

LinkedIn Jobs

Well suited for recommending jobs that the candidate needs to further validate. Job seekers cannot trust the location of recommended jobs.

ZipRecruiter

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

Pros

LinkedIn Jobs

  • Candidate sourcing - LinkedIn Jobs has a lot of search parameters for sourcing candidates and makes it easy
  • Job posting - it is simple to post jobs and to copy old postings or edit current postings
  • Easy to reach out to candidates - you can set specific message templates to use to quickly and easily reach out to prospective candidates

  • 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 Jobs

  • The location filter can be greatly improved. Sometimes common cities are not available.
  • The user interface managing the jobs could use some fine tuning, sometimes it can appear cluttered.

ZipRecruiter

  • 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.

Because of the misinformation on job location, I give a low rating and this is the reason for my entire review.

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.

LinkedIn Jobs is extremely easy to use. Support was almost not necessary, but I could contact my rep & get the question easily answered.

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 Jobs

Both are similar basic job boards. Indeed doesn't have as far of a reach or as heavy a volume of active users. A lot of it is the luck of the draw and understanding where your target audience is most apt to patronize. I do think Indeed brings less junk, but LinkedIn reaches more people.

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

LinkedIn Jobs

  • There were enough candidates to provide sufficient top-tier candidates.
  • There was a good means for candidates to post information about themselves and their resumes so our choice was competent and could deliver results for us.
Jay Werth | TrustRadius Reviewer

ZipRecruiter

  • 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.
