How do Employers use Linkedin for Recruitment?
Employers have four main strategies for finding the best candidates
1. They promote their company and opportunities.
2. They search for candidates by job titles, previous role, interests,
location - and through first and second level connections.
3. They screen and verify candidates - checking out capabilities, experience
and skills prior to contacting candidates.
4. They reach out to candidates through InMail (for private
messaging) and job postings.
