LinkedIn Talent

LinkedIn is great if you are in a populated area, where you think a large number of your audience may be utilizing the tool. It is the most popular professional platform, so the numbers work in your favor. Additionally, they do a great job of pushing jobs out to users when they're paid postings. Candidates are more likely to see your job on the platform, as well as receiving emails about the roles. LinkedIn Recruiter (regular or lite) is great for deeper sleuthing. You're provided more information about candidates, and can see more of their profiles. As a recruiter, it's a very helpful tool.If you are a smaller organization and/or only hire a few roles a year, it may not be necessarily to pay for some of the products. The free job board options are great, you just don't get the same exposure

Pros

  • Streamlined workflow - LinkedIn Talent has tools and functionalities that help us to be more organized.
  • Simple interface - New users are able to pick it up / adapt to the system quickly.
  • Search functionality is usually effective.

Cons

  • While InMails are a great tool, I'm not so sure that it's as beneficial or effective as they claim.
  • The search functionality, while I think works great now, can definitely be improved. Sometimes I find that a lot of the candidates that are filtered still do not match the criteria.
  • Not a fan of having to log in to a separate portal to access my Recruiter account. In addition, I find that opening LinkedIn Talent while I have some profiles open causes issues wherein my other tabs refresh to the Home page.

Support

Based on 2 answers
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.

Alternatives Considered

In addition to LinkedIn, we also use Crelate and are thinking of transitioning to another ATS and/or CRM. It's not necessary that we selected LinkedIn Talent over the others, but more that we understand that it must be used in conjunction with other tools to build the most efficient process and achieve the best results.

Return on Investment

  • Positive: I personally have found many individuals who I wouldn't have found elsewhere for positions that are rather difficult to fill. More qualified individuals as well.
