Overall Satisfaction with LinkedIn Talent

Our whole TA organization uses LinkedIn Talent, or at least all that source/look for talent. It is a great source for not just reaching out to talent, but to gather data of competitors, locations of great talent, etc. I would highly recommend it for any organization looking for talent as nothing has been able to match it yet.

Pros

  • Virtually everyone is on LinkedIn, so you have an enormous database of people to search for and reach out to.
  • You can reach out directly to anyone on LinkedIn with LinkedIn Talent solutions.
  • There is training from LinkedIn to make you more successful with the LinkedIn Talent solutions.

Cons

  • I would like more locations. For example, you can't just search the state of Maine, you would have to put in many locations in Maine. Minor, but somewhat irritating.
  • It would be great to be able to quickly identify those needing sponsorship and if your company does not sponsor, to eliminate those people.
  • Would be great if you could search specifically for diverse candidates/groups.
  • We have had an enormous amount of hiring come from LinkedIn Talent.
  • Able to run searches and gather data of specific skillsets in the market or with competitors.
  • It is fairly costly, so make sure it is used frequently.
Right now it is still better than just about any site out there although smaller niche sites are pulling candidates from LinkedIn. Also, you will need to be a strong user and message candidates appropriately to see maximum success. All other sites I would consider supplemental to LinkedIn Talent solutions.
It really is the best tool out there right now. Most other search tools pull from LinkedIn anyhow although it may be expensive. If you have multiple hires to make and are trying to create pipelines of candidates it is a great tool. Even in sales it can be effective. I think if you are a company where you have very few hires or maybe hires within manufacturing (hourly) you may have less success or it may be just too expensive for your needs.
