Overall Satisfaction with Linkedin Recruiter

LinkedIn Recruiter is one of our primary methods of identifying candidates for our open client positions. It's used by everyone in the organization (recruiters and researchers) and helps us to identify candidates that are qualified and also potentially open to a conversation with our firm.
  • Identifies which candidates are actively open to a conversation with an executive search firm
  • Helps to target our search to qualified candidates based on the detail in the profiles
  • Allows us to send a targeted email to 25 recipients at a time.
  • LinkedIn does not show us when an email has been opened, so we have no idea if the messages are going to a spam folder, getting blocked by a firewall or are just being ignored.
  • LinkedIn does not provide us contact information (phone number/email) unless we are a 1st level connection and the candidate allows us to see that information.
  • LinkedIn support is slow to respond to issues.
  • LinkedIn limits the number of Inmails to 400 unless you are willing to purchase more.
  • I can attribute at least three placements a year to LinkedIn Recruiter, so approximately $90,000 in sales.
  • I feel that LinkedIn has cost me money when I've tried to post jobs on the site. The applicants I get are not qualified for the position.
  • I love that I can see the history of who I have contacted on LinkedIn Recruiter and if they have responded in the past, so I don't contact them again if they didn't respond.
I love the LinkedIn Inmail system because I can target candidates who would be open to a conversation. I think this is a winning feature. I love that ZoomInfo has an automation platform and provides work phone, cell phone, business email and personal email addresses for most contacts. This is far greater than LinkedIn Recruiter. I selected LinkedIn Recruiter because I didn't know about ZoomInfo, but I still like the Inmail feature.

LinkedIn is appropriate for positions where the base salary is at least $60,000 or higher. LinkedIn is less useful for roles that are hourly or lower salaries.
