Our organization utilizes LinkedIn jobs for the purpose of recruiting for specialty and professional positions. It allows us to connect with candidates of all levels of experience and possibly organizations we can pair with for ongoing recruitment efforts. Typically, we use LinkedIn Jobs as a secondary sourcing outlet, but it has been useful for filling specialty positions and advertising hard-to-fill jobs and events.
  • Connecting with candidates.
  • Means of tracking communication.
  • Ease of connections and relevant matches.
  • Diversity and inclusion
  • Removing candidate personal information, only provides the essentials for job qualifications.
  • Ability to create events to invite candidates from LinkedIn.
LinkedIn Jobs is well suited for easy access to candidates, getting news/posts of events out quickly, and tracking candidate communication. I feel LinkedIn Jobs is less appropriate for diverse and inclusive recruitment due to the amount of personal information that is shared with anyone seeking candidates. Instead of solely matching with qualifications, anyone is able to view the full profile.

LinkedIn has several functions within its tool, but Jobs is certainly one of the most complete and efficient. Its structure is well detailed, organized, and easy to use, having a beautiful and functional design. It becomes very useful in our company because it makes it easier for both the candidate and the company to choose, it filters in a simple and organized way the best profiles for the ideal vacancies and also has a good selection process within the system.
  • Profile organization
  • Segmentation
  • Well-defined processes
  • Technical language
  • Exaggerated features
  • Incomplete profiles
Companies that look for specific profiles and aim at agility in the hiring process. Aiming that this function facilitates the hiring for both the company and the candidate, it is necessary to be responsible for the advertiser and for whoever wants the vacancy. Companies that have not established well-defined processes may have difficulty and not use the system's maximum potential.

I was hired using LinkedIn Jobs and there are a lot of opportunities for you to search. Sometimes, when I want to inquire, I [could] connect easily to a recruiter or manager for me to follow up. There [are] a lot of challenges in looking for a fit position that qualifies your eligibility, but LinkedIn Jobs helped me revise my profile for potential employers [to] check and review my qualifications based on my applications submitted to them.
  • Accurate jobs selection
  • Registered employers
  • Easy to apply
  • Create your own CV online
  • Less hassle for job search
  • More evaluations of scam job offers
  • Lack of application feedbacks
I am seeking overseas employment as J1 and I found a hotel resort via Linkedln. Until now, we’re still connecting and communicating with the recruiter for me to process my documents, visa, and anything for them to deploy me abroad. LinkedIn Jobs helped me identify the right employer for me to start my career growth and maximize my resume profile into a well attractive one.

I don't have any problem with LinkedIn jobs. It is useful to find new jobs and new employees. I like the fact of the filter method of LinkedIn jobs. It is easy to find anyone from particular places. Overall it is really a good product for HR management and companies.
  • - LinkedIn allows us to have an online personal brand that makes us visible worldwide.
  • - The big disadvantage of LinkedIn is lack of content, and LinkedIn groups are not really useful
+ Hiring Managers - 95% of recruiters use LinkedIn to recruit candidates. + Great job – You can find jobs as your need and fulfill your dreams. + Easy to use and good UX. - People can’t identify real or fake jobs. - Unverified Linked profiles are also a disadvantage for us and we can't actually call anyone.

I use LinkedIn Jobs to post ads. Although I am a “sourcer” and proactively seek out job candidates, this often leads me to passive candidates who aren’t open to new opportunities. Posting an ad on LinkedIn Jobs can be more efficient and increase time from first contact to a hire because anyone who applies is seeking a position.
  • Customizable screening questions - they somewhat recently improved this!! Custom questions used to not be an option but now that it is, it’s definitely a step up.
  • Helps automate the process - can send auto-rejection email if I choose. I like to notify candidates that I did receive their application and am not just ignoring it.
  • Tends to offer high-quality candidates. If not a fit for the job they applied for, sometimes we have a different position for them.
  • When adding skills under the job description, they are limited. Sometimes a skill that seems basic to me is not an option and you may only enter skills which appear on their drop down list.
  • Limited screening questions with awkward wording… but they fixed this! Custom questions are now an option
  • I’m not so sure that the advertising selects accurate candidates. LinkedIn tries to target your audience based on the “skills” section but what a candidates lists as their skills may not be the best picture of them.
LinkedIn Jobs is well-suited for some job positions over others. At our company, we do both temp-to-perm and direct hires. I’ve had luck with direct hires for positions such as sales reps, RNs, landscape architects. My colleagues working temp to perm have had less luck with their jobs such as MAs and front desk.

LinkedIn Jobs is like the "Who's who" of job searches. My experience with it from a user searching for a job opportunity has been a great experience because the platform allows me to not only understand what the role of a job opportunity is (this is common on most platforms) but Jobs, it feels like you already put your best foot forward because it's not just a resume the recruiter is looking at but rather your professional social media profile. Yes, you can apply for a position and not hear back, but having the InMail options access to others within the company through the connections is a great tool to help get your resume in front of the right people.
  • Full transparency to the hiring team
  • Algorithm suggests which positions your skillset is a good match with
  • location based and job profile recommendations
  • In-Mail options for users who are active on LinkedIn with a premium membership
  • Like any other job site, feedback from recruiter can lack
  • I actually noticed some fake job postings, which can be a scam and steal personal info
  • I don't understand what the benefit is of showing how many people have applied for a position- it may be a better idea to just indicate that a specific job opportunity is very active but no need to count the # of resumes submitted
I can't think of any reason why anybody looking for a job opportunity would not be involved with LinkedIn Jobs. It's one of the more active social media job sites and if you are active on LinkedIn (which you should be) you have a great opportunity to show your achievements and talent to job posters. The "Easy Apply" link, although great for companies hiring large groups of people may not be for somebody who is looking for a specialized role as that would take a more personal approach.

I use LinkedIn Jobs in three ways. The first is to find new employees/team members. The second is to find jobs in the field and reach out to those companies for advertisement slots on a podcast. The third is to find new jobs for myself. LinkedIn Jobs is my favorite app for all three methods of job search. It streamlines the process with integration with LinkedIn which makes it stand out compared to competitors.
  • Integration with LinkedIn profiles
  • Keywords for SEO
  • Easy apply button
  • Would be ideal to have an option for remote as the location of the position, or have it be a secondary location to the physical address of the company.
  • Some of the key terms are a bit generic, would be great to see main key terms and then secondary as many jobs fall under two different specialties/fields.
  • Repetition of the same jobs being sent out over the email digest.
Best platform/app out there for job searches. Not only on the side of the job seeker but also the hiring staff. It is fantastic that both sides can view the company's page and the job seeker's page to have a quick glimpse and treat this as a live resume. Also fantastic to see who works at the company and if there are any mutual connections there.

As the owner and founder of the real estate company that I am currently in, I have been the one who made the decision to buy and implement LinkedIn Jobs in our work areas. The reason why I chose LinkedIn Jobs as my main candidate search software is because it offered me a very good expectation since it works hand in hand with the LinkedIn social network, and this helps make the search for candidates even faster and many more requests can be obtained. The LinkedIn Jobs implementation process was something quite simple. It was only necessary to hire one of the recruitment plans that LinkedIn offered us, in order to implement it in each of the areas of our company, it is important to highlight that I have implemented this system in all the areas of my company.

The main benefit that LinkedIn Jobs has brought me is the quick turnaround of candidate applications. Previously, I had a lot of inconveniences to receive new candidate applications. Since the process was manual, I spent much more money on advertising to be able to obtain new candidates for my company, however, after the arrival of LinkedIn Jobs, everything changed for the positive. This service has provided me with a large number of applications from candidates from different places with diverse skills and many varied knowledge, in addition, it allows me to communicate with each candidate in order to schedule a future interview or to ask them about something specific. I am very happy with having LinkedIn Jobs in my company, we no longer have to spend hours and hours trying to find new candidates for the jobs that are open in our company, just post the job offer on LinkedIn Jobs and wait requests come in.
  • Excellent notification system. LinkedIn Jobs notifications are sent to my inbox and also to my mobile device, which makes it even easier to know the exact moment when we receive a new application from a candidate for an open position at our company.
  • The accessibility of each candidate's CV, using LinkedIn Jobs, is amazing. Thanks to the fact that it works within the social network, I can have direct access to the profile of each of the candidates, to be able to know each of their aptitudes, know their old work experiences and know what type of education they have had and what type of positive things can offer for the performance in my company.
  • One of the things that stands out a lot about LinkedIn Jobs is the interview scheduling calendar system. This service provides me with a calendar where I can organize the interviews that I have scheduled with one of the candidates, in order to keep track of the hiring.
  • The LinkedIn Jobs plans prices are very accessible, I have noticed the great savings I have had by buying one of the LinkedIn Jobs plans, previously I spent much more money advertising to obtain new candidates.
  • The UI is very easy to handle. LinkedIn Jobs allows me to organize all applications using Filters, which helps make it easier for me to read each candidate application.
  • When I open a new job offer for my company, and I post on LinkedIn Jobs, it asks me for a location for the job offer, however, the candidates I receive are from parts further away from the location that I have placed in the offer of employment. I would like LinkedIn Jobs to enable an option to only receive applications from candidates who are close to the job offer, it does not make sense to receive applications from people who are very far from the job zone.
  • For now, I don't have any other LinkedIn Jobs complaints. I am currently satisfied with the results that I have been obtaining in my company thanks to this excellent job posting service, due to the fact that I have obtained a large volume of candidates.
I would definitely recommend LinkedIn Jobs to a co-worker or a company, due to its effectiveness in obtaining new candidates for a job offer. LinkedIn Jobs is one of the best options to consider when it comes to searching for a job offer service, because it works within a social network and has the ability to advertise the job offer and thus achieve that the offer receives large numbers of candidates in a very short time. Posting a job offer on this service is too easy, you just have to write the job search position, the location, the contact methods, the places available for an interview and ready, the ad will be ready to be published. The implementation of LinkedIn Jobs is quite simple, as soon as you buy one of the offered plans, you get full access to the publication and hiring of new employees for the company.

I don't recommend LinkedIn Jobs for small businesses, as the costs of the plans can be a bit high for those small businesses. I recommend this service to medium and large companies that can afford the costs of hiring and job offers. This is an effective software for posting job vacancies.

Currently, LinkedIn Jobs is being used in all sectors of our real estate company, so that we can achieve a good quality of employees for all sectors and to know what type of candidates are applying to open jobs in each sector. In my Marketing sector, LinkedIn Jobs is being used mainly by me, because I am the Director and I am interested in knowing what type of people enter my sector, in order to know the qualities that each employee has and know what type of benefits it can bring me. This platform has been a fantastic implementation for us, as I have been able to automate the lead sourcing process. The job posting capabilities have had great benefits and have allowed me to find candidates from different locations and with varying qualities. LinkedIn Jobs has been fantastic software, I have been able to be more effective in hiring new employees for my Marketing sector, I have been able to create interviews for each of the eligible candidates and I have also been able to follow up with the candidates thanks to the excellent system of direct messaging that you own.
  • The job offers board is one of the things that stands out most positively on LinkedIn Jobs, since I can know all the job offers that are open for all sectors of my company and I can also see the candidates that are in each offer of employment.
  • Interview scheduling is one of the best features of LinkedIn Jobs. It allows you to schedule exact time and exact day for face-to-face meetings in order to carry out a more consolidated interview, in addition, it sends notifications to the candidate so that they can appear for the interview at the right time.
  • I can have access to the CV of each candidate. LinkedIn Jobs offers me a very detailed CV of each of the candidates and this allows me to quickly know the qualities that each candidate has.
  • I can handle job applications much better. It was a very tedious job when we did this manually and we did a lot of paperwork to organize the received requests. LinkedIn Jobs has made that manual work is avoided, thanks to the automated system to organize the requests.
  • LinkedIn Jobs allows me to advertise about the job offer that I have posted, however, advertising is one of the things that I do not like about this service because the advertising is not shown to a specific audience and qualified for the job offer. Advertising is seen by many people randomly and this causes you to receive candidates who do not qualify for the job offer because they do not have a suitable CV.
LinkedIn Jobs is the perfect platform for those companies that are looking for a hiring mechanism that is much more effective and saves them time. It is a service that works within a social network, however, this makes the effectiveness much greater since job offers can be directly accessible to a large group of people. Its ability to organize candidates in an automated way is incredible, this service organizes candidates by placement, endorsements and quality of skills. In addition, LinkedIn Jobs has a very attractive administrative dashboard, where you can have total control of the job offers open for the company, and which candidates have been received. It is an excellent option to carry out a quality hiring, where you can learn more about the candidate and know what benefits they can bring.

We use LinkedIn Jobs to post new jobs in the organization and reach out to right set of professionals. It is used by the many department and teams in the organization. It also helps us sponsor the job posts as well if the requirement is urgent and we can also set refined targeting criteria for candidates.
  • The ease with which it integrates with our existing Applicant Tracking System
  • Helps make hiring a candidate easier with location and qualification based filtering of candidates
  • It also allows us to use the network of hiring managers and other employees as they can also share the job posts on their profiles.
  • Sometimes a single job post get posted as multiple duplicate jobs
  • The interface of the Jobs sections feels congested and and needs to be revamped
  • There is no way for the candidate to track the status of their application and that's why this doesn't suffice as a standalone hiring tool
It's primarily suited for hiring senior leadership roles where relevant candidate pool is limited and you want to check references as well. In my opinion, it is not that effective for entry level roles. It is more suited in the organizations where an existing Applicant Tracking System is in place. However, sometimes the demographic and location based search is not accurate.

We use LinkedIn Jobs not only to recruit candidates, but also to promote our company. Our unique features are able to be highlighted as well as showing the applicants for our positions, proving this is a competitive company to work for. LinkedIn Jobs is the most professional recruiting website that is offered online.
  • Global marketing of positions.
  • Number of applicants.
  • Competitive positions.
  • Fewer promotions.
  • More filters.
  • More salary information.
I believe that LinkedIn Jobs is well suited for those looking for not only high volume level positions, but high executive level as well. What is nice about LInkedIn is our professionals are connected to their accounts and also with Hershey, bringing in people from all over the world. Being able to post about jobs and get connected with our employees in a unique way is always great.

LinkedIn Jobs is used by our recruitment team to advertise roles across the whole business. As part of the HR team I support these adverts and as much as possible respond to messages and queries regarding the organisation and roles available. LinkedIn Jobs is a good way to display the roles in a clear and simple way, so those browsing can see what’s on offer.
  • Simple.
  • Clear.
  • Nice layout.
  • Can include links.
  • Sometimes html can display wrong.
  • Being generic, adverts don’t always stand out.
LinkedIn Jobs is great for finding talent for specific industries or SME’s for specific roles. Some of our roles are uncommon so it can be hard to recruit for these roles. LinkedIn jobs is a platform used daily by many organisations, recruiters and those looking for work. Often meaning we can create a lot of interest on here.

LinkedIn Jobs has made posting for jobs more seamless so that I can also easily view resumes, and work history. LinkedIn is one of my favorite networking and hiring tool[s]. I can easily view potential candidates, and even speak with them directly without recruiters and hassles in between. LinkedIn Jobs is used by my organization when we really want to get the word out for a new position. LinkedIn has the power of connection and the power to reach a vast variety of applicants.
  • Simple to use, LinkedIn Jobs makes it simple to post a job, share it and re-share. Therefore its reach is magnified and amplified within potentially beneficial networks.
  • LinkedIn's social networking base/platform makes job posting feel more natural. In real time you get to view your applicants and see their qualifications listed on their profiles.
  • LinkedIn Jobs is has the potential to reach many networks and for the JOB SEEKERS, they seem to be able to do much more research on the company for which they are applying.
  • We have found to get the reach that we want, LinkedIn Jobs has been an expensive endeavor. The free postings do not get very far on LinkedIn Jobs.
  • For Large scale hired, LinkedIn Jobs is not beneficial at all. It does not do a good job at keeping a large influx of candidates coming through.
  • Some of the candidates end up being in other locations and therefore some have been unwilling to relocate or to fulfill job descriptions. In some ways, the wide reach works to a disadvantage when reaching candidates that do not even realize where the position is located. LinkedIn Jobs needs to do a better job with location based searches.
When you want to reach a wide network, LinkedIn Jobs is great. If you want to find a new subset of applicants that you have not found on any other job board. If on a tight budget there are other options that will definitely help you with large scale hires and to reach the applicants you need. LinkedIn Jobs is great for networking and finding like minded people/companies and groups. However, it is not always great at targeting or finding applicants that are a good fit.

I use LinkedIn Jobs to post new and open roles for the entire organization. We use this in our recruiting efforts and to reach out to candidates. It helps to address our hiring initiatives and to drive people to learn more about our company and assist in hiring the right candidates.
  • Tracking open roles
  • Creating search folders for each role
  • Having a lot of options in my search to help narrow down the right candidates
  • I don't like that sometimes when posting a role it auto-populates if I enter in a few similar words into the box
  • I don't like that the role doesn't auto renew or notify that the roles are expiring
It's great to be able to have many different roles and then to have search folders for each role I'm hiring for [with LinkedIn Jobs]. It helps me to track my candidates and keep track of what roles I have as well as see how well the jobs are performing or if they are bringing in enough candidates.

LinkedIn Jobs is being used to advertise for in-house roles and responsibilities as well as for clients. We use LinkedIn jobs in conjunction with other infrastructure and integrations to have a smooth recruitment process for ourselves and external vendors. It is being used across the whole organization and reaches potential employees that our own job site would not always meet.
  • Easy searching of potential candidates
  • Shows an easy to understand history of recruitees
  • Integrates well with our current implementations
  • Recommendations for clients are often too general, e.g. Java developer will see Database jobs recommended
  • Incomplete data is often listed in LinkedIn requiring external sites to be opened
  • Applications aren't as easy as other dedicated job sites
I would highly recommend LinkedIn Jobs as it is how I've gained employment for my last two career moves. It is easy to present yourself as an excellent potential employee and employers can easily filter candidates. It is best suited for large companies who know exactly what sort of employee they want or need. It is less suited for local jobs in my opinion as in comparison they look less appealing than the large corporations that always seem to be at the top of your recommended jobs list.

We use LinkedIn Jobs for networking and business expansion opportunities. It's primarily used by our recruiter and networking specialist. It brings an easier environment to connect with other people that would otherwise not be available.
  • LinkedIn profile integration.
  • Non-invasive messaging.
  • Networking opportunities outside of business expansion.
  • It would benefit in giving the option for different privacy levels. Though it's not recommended when seeking employment, some people would still like to have maximum security.
LinkedIn Jobs is the perfect platform for small business to expand and employee base and explore networking opportunities.

[LinkedIn Jobs is] being used by Human Resource’s department for hiring across all the departments. Posting jobs on LinkedIn helps us in wide reach to the potential candidates through direct or indirect references.
  • Wider reach
  • More relevant profiles
  • Easy filter function wise
  • All jobs should have easy apply feature.
[LinkedIn Jobs is] appropriate for more professional and senior roles instead of entry level hiring. Entry level profiles are not up to date and very difficult to do scrutiny.

LinkedIn jobs is being used by our organization through a specific department. It solves our business problem of finding qualified candidates by allowing us to narrow in on a specific demographic.
  • Allows us to narrow in on a specific location
  • Allows us to narrow in on a specific job title
  • Allow the user to specify demographics themselves.
  • Allow ad posting directly through ad section rather than creating an ad on company page first
Quick and easy way to create an ad and they send it out to the right demographics for you so you reach the right candidates. I just wish they would allow the user to specify specific demographics themselves.

I use it to help find the best candidates and to hear the back stories of those in transition.
  • It shows the human side of recruiting and allows the recruiter to stay in touch with the candidate rather than leave them hanging.
  • It allows for the candidate to really tell their story through referrals.
  • It allows you to see where you rank and cuts through a lot of red tape.
  • It can be better in allowing the team you will work with [to] give more of a background to the environment you are heading into.
  • A better setup for employers to give a timetable of when they will do interviews.
  • More referral possibilities and use of recommendations.
It is well suited in putting in what you are looking for, and also in expanding the board of quality candidates. It could be better in reaching out [and] describing the environment where you will be working [as well as] offering those beyond L.I.O.N. to be able to contact about said company.
They understand the process and will not just do it and take your money. It can be done immediately without waiting. The questions can be answered quickly through Twitter with ease and leads to a personal relation before the ad is placed. It is not a chore, but a joy to do.

I am an end-user of LinkedIn jobs and reporting on user experience to help manage expectations of companies that use this product to post jobs. LinkedIn is delivering job recommendations stating a location that is incorrect, causing job applications that don't match candidate expectations nor company job descriptions.

Scenario - My job search settings are set for remote. I have many years in SaaS where my past 20 years of software jobs list my location as "remote to (city name)" or my current city (Eugene). My job alert is set for customer success management-Remote.

Job recommendations are set for "on" however, results show jobs in small towns, and the company websites do not show jobs in those cities.

I conclude that LinkedIn Jobs is pushing jobs to me that show incorrect locations. This causes increased job applications for jobs that are not available. It is already time-consuming to tailor resumes and cover letters for each job application, find LinkedIn connections to boost resume visibility. And to realize that the job in, for example, Coquille, OR, doesn't exist. I have searched the many support articles in their knowledge base around this issue, only to see support reps quickly close the thread with a misunderstood and irrelevant answer, always pointing to user error.

Here's an example position: Customer Success Consultant (Premier Accounts) at HubSpot in Coquille, OR, Posted 1 week ago, with 79 applicants. This is a terrible user experience, a waste of time, and delivers job applicants that don't match the job requirements for location. Very disappointing of LinkedIn. If I were considering using LinkedIn for hiring, I'd make sure they correct this flaw so you're not inundated with job candidates seeking jobs in different locations.
  • LinkedIn shows my how many applicants have used their platform to apply
  • I can see how my skills and experience match the job description
  • The jobs are with reputable companies
  • I can see and make connections to strengthen my hiring chances
  • Misinformed job location, pulling from some algorithm that is flawed
  • Match job listing more closely to company's listing regarding location - be accurate
  • Verify job location with company
Well suited for recommending jobs that the candidate needs to further validate. Job seekers cannot trust the location of recommended jobs.
There are many complaints that there is no way to contact their support. There is no phone number, nor chat and people aren't receiving responses on social media. I have used "Feedback" to report on the job description page the flaw in incorrect locations.

We are a small, boutique staffing agency, so we set up one person to post the jobs based off of all the recruiters' requests. Not only did the LinkedIn Jobs advertise our professional-level jobs to a professional level audience, they significantly increased traffic to our LinkedIn Company Page & significantly increased our InMail response rate.
  • Advertise job openings
  • Increase InMail response rate
  • Increase company web traffic
  • Present unified LinkedIn image
  • Standardized job titles
  • Geographic areas are locked in
LinkedIn Jobs is very well suited to having a cohesive, professional company image on LinkedIn. The Jobs portion gets decent applicant traffic & ties into the whole picture of your company's LinkedIn. The only real challenge was getting applicants from LinkedIn Jobs into our ATS.
LinkedIn Jobs is extremely easy to use. Support was almost not necessary, but I could contact my rep & get the question easily answered.

It is used to post external and internal roles and generally works pretty well, we just have to filter through A LOT of junk resumes to get to the relevant ones (and this is assuming a strong write-up we put together). I don't think their algorithm is all that good yet when you give it good content.
  • Deepens candidate pools
  • Sometimes finds a unicorn
  • Idiot proof
  • Too much trash
  • Filters aren't great
There just aren't that many effective alternatives that I know of. It's not a great solution and works better if you have a support person to filter the applicants for your sharks. I wish there was an advanced search to negate junk resumes or a way for LinkedIn to give you a shortlist based on advanced criteria.
Support isn't that great. Just average I'd say. A lot of the time when things go wrong, there is nothing the support person can do. It's just the way they are set up and it takes them usually 24 hours to respond to a ticket which to me is far too long, but they are overall just okay.

We use LinkedIn Jobs to get new hires. We have tried other applications, but we feel that LinkedIn Jobs gives better search options and candidates.
  • Provides a more diverse group of candidates than other applications
  • You can see if the prospective candidate is networking or not.
  • N/A LinkedIn Jobs is great!!!
We were able to get a response from more qualified candidates from LinkedIn Jobs than from other applications. You can also better track who you have already reached out to with LinkedIn Jobs as well.
Great application to interact with prospective employes!
Score 9 out of 10

LinkedIn jobs is used by our recruiting department to post jobs, source candidates, and search for certain job posting criteria. It helps us in multiple areas of the hiring process; most often, to post roles and get candidate applications in. We also utilize it to assist with job criteria. LinkedIn Jobs lets us see what other titles companies are using and what search terms might appear to help us best title our job postings.
  • 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
  • The new UI is a little odd. "Projects" take precedence over job postings now, and it makes things a little difficult to navigate.
  • Some of the search parameters don't function as intended. I have had issues with boolean searches not excluding certain terms.
LinkedIn Jobs is a fantastic resource for job posting or sourcing candidates, both for the same reason: the customer base is extremely large. You will see many candidates apply via LinkedIn, and there are plenty of customers signed up with a LinkedIn profile to source from. The only area it is a little difficult in is utilizing it for job postings outside of the US or UK.
LinkedIn Jobs support has always responded when I need assistance and made it a very personalized experience when asking for help. They truly read through all of the information you are giving them and come back with an applicable response. We also had personalized account members working on our team who would offer to meet in person, so that made the experience even better!
