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.

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 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!

  • 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 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!

  • 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.

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.

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 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.

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 Talent Hub

  • LinkedIn Talent has allowed us to truly build up our candidate database/pipeline.
  • As we have started to explore job postings as well, we have found that it has been effective in targeting the audiences that are most relevant to the roles that we are working on.
  • Ability to now filter through active candidate preferences.

  • 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.
