How would it be if all companies could access a platform where millions and millions of potential applicants could be found for every position? This is exactly what is already possible: With LinkedIn Recruiting, we not only help your company to attract many, but above all the right applicants for your job offer.
Through an intelligent system and millions of profiles, LinkedIn as a “social media for companies” helps us to filter out unqualified applicants, monitor potential new employees and inspire non-seekers but experienced applicants to change companies. In the following, we would like to explain to you in detail how LinkedIn recruiting works.
LinkedIn is the largest social career network and is primarily used for communication between companies, employees, employers and job seekers. Because LinkedIn has an international reach, companies have the opportunity to establish contacts abroad in order to expand more easily and quickly.
With meaningful personal and company profiles, website visitors can get a better overview of services, skills and knowledge and, ideally, find new business partners.
Even after graduation, LinkedIn is the first port of call for many job seekers to get to know companies in the industry better, to apply or to be contacted themselves based on stated skills.
Existing contacts can be defined more precisely using presettings, e.g. as colleagues or supervisors. In this way, outsiders get a more precise impression of corporate structures, processes and employees. With an attractive and informative company profile, company managers can increase the number of applicants and make LinkedIn recruiting even more efficient.
Unlike social media like Facebook or Instagram, LinkedIn is used exclusively as an intelligent business platform. Visitors register because they have certain professional skills and are open to exchange with like-minded people.
The general willingness to exchange information about professional life and any career opportunities in a social network is just one advantage of LinkedIn. We would like to show you 5 other advantages that make using LinkedIn during your recruiting process almost indispensable.
LinkedIn gives you the ability to filter and contact over 600 million potential employees for your company. While XING focuses on Switzerland, Austria and Germany, LinkedIn is particularly interesting when it comes to international contact and recruiting.
StaffConcept helps you to create an attractive job advertisement, to filter out suitable candidates and to contact them. In addition to people who are actually looking for a job, LinkedIn recruiting offers another major advantage:
Using the data left behind, it is possible to make targeted contact with people who match your requirement profile. It doesn’t matter whether these people are already employed by another company – as long as they allow unknown contact in their settings.
LinkedIn offers the opportunity to show qualified workers new opportunities for a job or company change.
Since it is not only the quantity that counts in LinkedIn recruiting, but above all the quality of the applicants, StaffConcept will also focus in particular on the skills and performance of potential new employees when recruiting. LinkedIn offers the opportunity to add your own CV to your profile and thus gain more attention from employers.
This makes it easier for us to understand whether applicants are actually qualified or would like to start with skills they have learned themselves as career changers. Of course, you decide which requirements the new employee should meet. The entire recruiting process is significantly faster, more successful and more cost-effective thanks to direct information in the profile.
Entrepreneurs often have precise ideas and requirement profiles for new employees. With ready-made search and filter options, applicants who do not fit the company from the start can be easily filtered out. The selection is based on demographic data, educational qualifications, experience in the industry, career level and many other filter settings. These functions also make LinkedIn recruiting much easier.
Based on meaningful analysis data and empirical values, we develop a promising multi-posting plan that includes all social media in your industry. Before creating and publishing coordinated job advertisements, we will get in touch with you and discuss how to proceed.
To protect you from nasty surprises, we will of course give you a fixed price for the entire social media recruiting process beforehand. The strict avoidance of hidden or unforeseeable additional costs is part of our quality standards!
Of course, the first applicants should have reported after a few days. In order to check the success of your job advertisement and to make possible improvements, regular analyzes of the profile views that have been added after the job advertisement was created should be carried out.
The conversion rate is also an important factor that provides information about how attractive the job offer actually is for potential applicants. The conversion rate refers to the number of people who clicked on your website through the job advertisement in order to obtain further information or, ideally, to apply.
We recognize the point at which the application was aborted and can counteract “lost applicants” by contacting them ourselves and making improvements in the application process.
Recruitment via LinkedIn is particularly suitable for companies that operate internationally and may have a headquarters abroad. LinkedIn is a quick and easy way to find new employees who may speak a different language and who meet the requirements of your company. XING Recruiting is another promising alternative for companies in the DACH area (Germany, Austria, Switzerland).
With years of experience and a trained team, StaffConcept will be happy to help you with the entire recruitment process. We create your job advertisement on LinkedIn, filter out suitable applicants and find qualified employees for you. Feel free to contact us!
