LinkedIn recruitment is the process of using the social media platform to source candidates. Employers and agency recruiters can post jobs onto LinkedIn directly and candidates can apply for roles directly on the site. LinkedIn is also a great tool that enables recruiters to use their network to share open roles and encourage referrals. Additionally, recruiters can use LinkedIn’s search facilities to find suitable candidates using keywords and cross-referencing using the descriptions in candidate profiles. LinkedIn groups are also a key resource for recruiters, allowing them to personally connect with potential employees.
