To some people it may seem rather ridiculous to share this kind of guidance in 2014, but judging from the anemic LinkedIn profiles I view on a daily basis, it's clear that it's advice people still need. I know everyone is busy, but if how they represent themselves as professionals is important to them (and it should be), they need to make the time to get this particular…Continue

If you have a first name, you can do a X-Ray LinkedIn armed only with the basics.
site:linkedin.com intitle:lance "location * san francisco bay area" "industry * e-learning"
If you’re 3rd degree or beyond, you’ll notice that Lance has no mention of his employer, skills or anything outside of his name, location and industry. These three elements are the minimum a public profile can have so take…

Recently, I noticed the "Activity" feed on my LinkedIn Profile Page was no longer visible to me or my visitors. Initially, I assumed a "bug" took hold so I reported the malady to LinkedIn, only to find the omission was intentional.
Technical support offered no reason but to say "Activity feeds have been…Continue

Earlier this week I stumbled across a basic Boolean search string generator from a London based company called Clever Biscuit.

The post has everything you need to use the tool for recruiting. It's so easy to use, you don't even have…Continue

Rich Peterson stated, Using, “non-traditional recruiting media,” is also a chance for you to convey something about your corporate culture and job opportunities to jobseekers.
1.) Signatures: Ask all of your employees, companywide, to put a footer in their e-mails reminding people that their, “company is hiring.” A signature can say "Note: we're hiring Star Developers, Energized Sales Managers and Effective Digital…Continue
Employees are the cogs that keep company gears moving forward. It’s understandable that any business would want to keep those cogs well-oiled and optimized. Problems that an employee may encounter are also the company’s problems. That being said, employees are still people, and they have free will. Trying to control and manipulate them will end badly.
That point also holds true when it comes to social profiles such as LinkedIn. Companies are already attempting to dictate the content…Continue
After attending a number of Recruiting and HR conferences this fall, I have noticed a few common themes. In particular, in both Europe and the U.S. the major focus has been on 1) “Big Data”; and 2) recruiters as marketing and sales people.These ideas are widely accepted –…Continue
On Wednesday, the big news at Talent Connect was that LinkedIn had gone mobile. But mobile access wasn't the only upgrade that LinkedIn's Recruiter product received, although this one received very little fanfare: recruiters who occupy a LinkedIn Recruiter seat can now post status updates directly onto…Continue

We have been hearing for awhile now that mobile is where it's at, and today? LinkedIn announced they agree. A big part of the product announcements are focused on their mobile users. Makes sense, since somewhere between 70-80% of job seekers report using mobile to find their next career move & 30% of…

I have been using LinkedIn since the beginning and have had a LinkedIn Recruiter account for the last few years. I was doing a audit of my current account usage, as well as trying different formats to increase responses. With a current accept rate of 15%, I should be happy with the results, right? I look back to comments by Lou Adler about how to get a much higher response rate. I use templates and personalized messages. I try both direct and indirect recruiting.
In doing a deep…Continue
