Recruiter … Linkedin Style

Passive Job Candidates

If you’ve been procrastinating – or even flat outright resisting – creating a profile on Linkedin, I hope you will read, and then re-think, your decision. If you are on Linkedin, but without an actual presence – and there is a big difference – again, I hope you will re-think that strategy after reading this article.

Linkedin Recruiter is a stealth hiring tool that specifically targets passive candidates. Since I believe that you are the most marketable as a passive candidate who is not actively in the job market, here are my top three recommendations for leveraging that positioning via Linkedin Recruiter …

1 – Create a Compelling Marketing Message

2 – Work Your Message Consistently

3 – Building Your Network

Bottom line, you have to play the game in order to win the game! And that game is currently Linkedin Recruiter.

  1. Good advice. I am a “heavy-hitter” CFO in my industry so I don’t get too many calls, which is unfortunate because it my be time for a move. I have a linked-in profile, but since I would be considered a very passive candidate I haven’t really created a “presence”. I’ll have to look at doing something about that in the future. Thanks for the advice.
