Overall Satisfaction with LinkedIn Talent

LinkedIn Talent is used across the organization by both our recruiters and our account managers. We continued to run into candidates that were no longer looking, unqualified, resumes that were submitted years ago and not up to date, etc. LinkedIn allows our recruiters to find actively searching candidates who meet the necessary qualifications as well as passive candidates. Because so many people are using LinkedIn, the information is more up to date than other Job search websites such as Careerbuilder or Indeed. They're able to view contact information, along with resumes right up front as they view the high level overview provided in the person's LinkedIn profile. Our Account Managers use LinkedIn Talent to find the correct person to reach out to at an organization. Locate hiring managers, idenitfy who their key contact will be. They're also able to further research the candidates provided to them by recruiters quickly and easily.
  • Ability to build pipeline and organize candidates in folders
  • Find skill sets
  • Up to date information
  • Candidates who are most likely to respond feature
  • Easy, quick searches
  • Candidate rankings/statistics
  • Saves time screening
  • Allows you to advertise open roles
  • Get a lot of spam messages
  • The mobile version is AWFUL
  • InMails and the rules around those could be better.
  • It would be nice to have a customizable dashboard.
  • The cost can be too much for small companies. It's an investment, but a good one, in my opinion.
  • Positive ROI
  • Ability to search/hire for niche skills
  • Job Post visibility = More interaction
  • Quick responses from candidates who have the required skills mean Job Reqs are filled quicker
We used LinkedIn Talent along with Career Builder, Jobvite and Indeed searches. Hands down, LinkedIn Talent was the best and most widely used. I would say about 80% of our candidates to hire were found via LinkedIn Talent vs the others. Others are not up to date, hard to read, people often upload resumes with false or incorrect information, etc. With LI Talent we're able to find the right candidates fast. It's been well worth the investement.
I did not have any experience with LinkedIn Talent Support. We never had to contact them. Our Sales team had Talent Support and Sales Navigator and I've had experience with Sales Navigator support. They were quick and pleasant. Respoded to our issue quicky. Linkedin Talent Support alerts you when there is a new feature and frequently offers trainings on the product.

LinkedIn Talent has been THE best for all scenarios. It really is where talent is at. You get genuine information and experiences and the ability to directly message that person via InMail. They let you know who is likely to respond so that you use your inmails wisely. It makes it so easy to match to the candidate to our needs and skillsets.
