Not everyone has the paid version of LinkedIn Recruiter. Today Marvin and Eric talk about how to get the most out of using the free version of LinkedIn and how best to use LinkedIn to find your next job.
We get “hands-on” and walk through some of the best ways to use LinkedIn.

We asked our attendees, “Not including LinkedIn, what is your favorite tool or trick that you like to use in your recruiting?”
Here are their answers:
- Boolean search command
- Boolean Search Strings
- Connecting with community leaders/Indeed
- CRM sourcing
- engagement newsletters
- google search and plugins
- Google x-ray searches
- I do not have a favorite, but there are useful chrome extensions that can be used to help identify candidates on social media.
- Internal database, ATS
- Keeping in touch with talent pools
- Keeping pipelines active
- Knockout questions, Boolean searches
- LinkedIn is my lifeline, but my next top source of candidates is referrals-always get referrals from internals and externals
- my network
- Past candidates already through process
- research companies, schools, orgs
- Social Talent boolean builder
- Sourcing from Groups
- Sourcing in ATS
- Workday and Jobvite
- x-ray search

10:08:29// Sean Rehder : Who posts more than once a week on their LinkedIn profile?
10:10:05// Sheila Robinson to All panelists : I try to share content a couple of times a week
10:10:18// Shailly Sharma : i change post as per the priority
10:11:54// Gretchen Mays : How do we know which of our skills are not on Linked In’s list?
10:12:00// Sheila Robinson to All panelists : I post what I’m working on but unfortunately get a lot of solicitation from 3rd party agencies (that I can’t use) or interested talent from outside the US
10:13:27// Sean Rehder : To find “missing” skills, I think if you just do a search and see if it comes up as a filter option.
10:15:51// Gretchen Mays : Does job title Recruiting vs. Talent Acquisition make a difference in terms of being found?
10:18:10// Catherine Hansen to All panelists : I’ve noticed Talent Acquisition is used heavily in the tech industry (just like People Operations vs Human Resources). Have you noticed this?
10:21:00// Sean Rehder : I see Talent Acquisition or TA used a lot, yes.
10:21:43// Catherine Hansen to All panelists : Eric, could you over again how you navigated to the screen you are in? I assume this is Linked In Recruiter?
10:22:38// Sean Rehder : its the free LinkedIn he’s in.
10:22:55// Sean Rehder : I’ll ask him to show how he got there again
10:23:32// Gretchen Mays : CONNECTIONS TAB helps you sort your connections?
10:30:21// Sean Rehder : Gretchen…I don’t think the Connections tab helps that much. It’s limiting IMHO.
10:30:36// Fal Patel : I have to drop for another call. Will a recording be sent out?
10:32:03// Sean Rehder : Yes…I’ll be recording it and posting it today at www.Recruiting.Work
10:32:54// Shailly Sharma : can we find people who worked in the past company instead of current company?
10:36:55// Sean Rehder : If you click on “all filters” you can then choose past companies.
10:37:21// Shailly Sharma : thank you
10:38:06// Shailly Sharma : how can we search for non visa candidates?
10:38:48// Catherine Hansen to All panelists : Could you possibly recap keyword search again – which screen is this done in?
10:40:36// Jessica Marotta to All panelists : That is amazing Eric!
10:41:09// Jessica Marotta to All panelists : Super surprising about that. What is the value of 1 day posting?
10:43:22// Gretchen Mays : best way to search for recent college grads at a certain college or students currently taking classes at a local college?
10:44:33// Saundra Ramsey : Its wanting me to enter an email address for them.
10:45:52// Sean Rehder : The email address should only be for those that require it…I think.
10:46:21// Shailly Sharma : where do we see that we have common groups?
10:48:17// Jessica Marotta to All panelists : I have never withdrew a connection request in LI – where do you find this
10:48:39// Ajay kumar : I think it is 3 weeks for sending a invite again for same person after withdrawing.
10:50:10// Jessica Marotta to All panelists : All the questions
10:50:18// Jessica Marotta to All panelists : Given followers are diff than connections
10:50:46// Jessica Marotta to All panelists : would you look at followers as well?
10:51:33// Becky Gramenz : Do they get a notification if you disconnect with them?
10:53:38// Abigale Dooley to All panelists : Why do you think people hide their connections?
10:56:41// Sean Rehder : Disconnects do not get a notice.
10:57:02// Gretchen Mays : Have to drop off call but this was AWESOME!!!!
