Fascinating: Custom Headline Search

I must admit that until I started using the search technique that I am about to describe, I did not realize that a significant number of LinkedIn members customize their Headlines. I had expected most members to stay with the default Headline, which is <Job Title> at <Company>. Not true. It won't be easy to estimate the percentage of customized Headlines, but they are quite common.What members put in Headlines often falls into one of these categories:- "I am hiring" <...>- "I…See More

Hacking the Lack of Features in Recruiter

Do you use LinkedIn Recruiter? Read on.Given the UI design for advanced people search dialog in LinkedIn Recruiter (that I would call user-unfriendly), there couldn't possibly be a clean resolution for the vague "companies or boolean" field:Indeed, if there is one word entered, which is a company name (like Apple), will it be looking for employees of that particular company (Apple) or for people from all the companies with this word ("apple") in the company names? It is unclear from the UI.…See More

Hi, my name is Kevin and I am the operations manager for a healthcare recruiting firm in Los Angeles, CA. I’m reaching out to you because you indicated on your profile that you were in healthcare staffing and possibly open to doing some splits. We have a lot of open job orders and offer a 50/50 fee split. Would you be open to discussing ways we could collaborate from time to time?
