Overall Satisfaction with Linkedin Recruiter

I use LinkedIn Recruiter for all of my positions that I have vacant that are professional positions. I do not use it for recruiting technicians but positions such as accounting, sales, and management. I find that the business problems it addresses is it a cloud based system which makes searching for a candidate much easier than other sites.
  • The scheduler is my most favorite part of Recruiter. Super easy and organized to use.
  • It also can integrate with my applicant tracking system when and if I hire from LinkedIn Recruiter.
  • The fact that you can see an applicants full profile gives more information than just a resume when selecting candidates to interview.
  • The mobile app is significantly different than the desktop version. I would like to see more consistency.
  • There are a lot of updates that can cause confusion.
  • A very positive impact is that I have hired several qualified candidates that have now have longevity at our business.
  • The number of qualified candidates seem to be more and more detailed than other sites.
  • Whenever I have had a question, the support from Recruiter was always fast and responsive to get my question answered quickly as to not hold up my process.
  • Support staff was very knowledgeable and customer service friendly.
LinkedIn Recruiter is better than Indeed when hiring high level professionals. It gives a lot more qualified candidates and more access to profiles. It allows you to seek out candidates, where Indeed does not unless you pay an extensive amount and even when you do, you are only given specific information. Also, with Indeed, even when you have filters on the qualifications you are looking for, I still receive an extensive amount of very underqualified candidates which wastes my time.

I really like that you can directly network with candidates without having to go through a third party site. If you are looking for a higher professional position, this program is a lot more job specific candidates to choose from. The search parameters are much easier to use than other sites. They allow the potential employer to really narrow down the search results to find the most qualified candidates without having to dig through a lot of unqualified profiles. Overall, LinkedIn Recruiter is very very easy and convenient. In my industry it is less appropriate when looking to hire technicians or warehouse personnel.
