Using LinkedIn for recruitment – Blog

A lot of our clients ask us, ‘What’s the big deal with LinkedIn and how can I use it for recruitment?’ 

So here you go! LinkedIn is the largest professional network in the World with over 187,000,000 members and the platform is continuing to grow at a rate of 2 new members every second.
