LinkedIn Talent Hub

LinkedIn Talent is well suited for any company that is looking to hire new talent either currently or in the future. This tool is a great resource for finding qualified candidates that fit whatever criteria a position requires. You are able to search, connect with, and manage applicant profiles and maintain a talent pipeline. I've found that candidates on LinkedIn Talent are often more highly-qualified than those on other recruiting platforms such as Monster, Indeed, and CareerBuilder.

Pros

LinkedIn Talent Hub

  • Search Feature. A recruiter can easily use the platform to find their ideal candidate. There is a variety of filters to help you. If you are not strong in Boolean searches, the filters really come in handy! I’ve trained 2 members of my team with this platform and they love how easy it is to use!
  • Project folders. This feature allows a recruiter to put prospective candidates in a folder. You can select multiple candidates and put them in a folder. You can then send this folder over to a hiring manager to get their review. I love this feature since it helps me be organized.
  • Job Slots. With our Linkedin Talent account, we also included the job slot feature where in which we can post a select number of our open positions. Many of our new hires have actually come through the linked job postings!
  • Unlimited Inmails. I love the fact that I can easily reach out to candidates. With the connectifier plugin, recruiters are now able to reach out to the prospective candidate through their personal email address!

Cons

LinkedIn Talent Hub

  • Sales - in our experience, the sales people at LinkedIn have been intense. If you give the slightest indication that you want to discuss/buy/utilize a product of theirs, you will be hounded by a rep. We've told ours repeatedly that we are not interested in changing our package right now, yet still get daily emails asking to set up conversations. Additionally, we have asked our rep to only contact our recruitment coordinator (myself) with information, yet she continues to reach out to other members of the organization trying to set up times for sales calls. This is not an isolated incident - we've had other reps who have just been a bit too pushy.
  • Pricing - LinkedIn is not cheap. Even a 'lite' Recruiter subscription will run you over $1,000 annually. I'm not sure where it falls on the scale compared to other platforms, but it's been our most expensive tool, by far. My advice to anyone would be to do your research on their products and have a strong idea of what you need for your team/organization. It may be necessary to spend a little more, or perhaps you can find an option to scale back and save money.
  • Updates - Although I do appreciate the constant improvements and upgrades, these typically come on a rolling basis. We had a sales rep tell us about a great new tool that was coming out, but it didn't get to our subscription/type of organization for almost a year. I understand the need to push upgrades out on a rolling basis, but it can be frustrating as a user when you're hearing about other tools you don't have access to.
  • Customer Service - LinkedIn has some of the worst customer service we've ever utilized. There is NO way to contact them to ask questions. You can email, but it'll take at least 24 hrs to get a response, even if it's a quick question. There is no phone number, except for to sales reps. I've called a sales rep trying to get in touch with someone who could help me, but they direct you back to their website and the FAQs. It just seems odd there is no way to contact them or they are actively making it difficult to do so. Another recruiting platform we use has a very helpful web chat - I can hop on, ask a quick question, and get a quick response. This has been incredibly helpful for me, and I wish LinkedIn did the same!

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

LinkedIn Talent Hub

LinkedIn Talent is in an entirely different league than ZipRecruiter. ZipRecruiter simply does not stack up in terms of finding the same high-level, professional talent. If you are sourcing for lower-level positions, Zip will probably give you a bigger candidate pool to fish from, but the majority of candidates and resumes you find will be worthless. If you are looking at things in terms of quality vs. quantity, LinkedIn Talent is the obvious choice.
