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

LinkedIn Talent

  • LinkedIn Talent / Recruiter provides a clean interface through which to organize and run searches.

  • InMails are a proven way to reach out to candidates whose emails may be protected or otherwise difficult to find.

Alternatives Considered

LinkedIn Talent

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.
