Our favorite tips: Using LinkedIn to source and attract high-quality candidates 1 It all starts with your profile. Your profile is your first opportunity to build your personal brand as a recruiting professional. Add a picture, get creative with your headline, and feature recommendations. Your profile summary should articulate why you’re a trusted partner. Think BRAND, not resume. 2 Engage your followers. Make sure your firm has a Company Page on LinkedIn, where members can follow your organization. Use Targeted Status Updates to share brand messaging, company news and open positions with your follower base – you can target by industry, function, geography and more. 3 Get involved in LinkedIn Groups. There are more than 2M Groups on LinkedIn. Join recruiting groups or those relevant to your key talent pools to keep your finger on the pulse. Participate in a few to brand yourself as an expert. And consider creating a group about your firm or industry to drive your company brand, build pipeline, and even source. For more tips and best practices, visit: talent.linkedin.com.

3 The passive talent “capabilities gap” Firms must close it to remain competitive LinkedIn 2013 Global Recruiting Trends 13

90% of firms focus on passive candidates; more than half say passive talent is central to their recruiting strategy Focus on passive candidate recruiting 9% 1% Very much so – it’s central to our recruiting strategy To some extent 34% 56% Not much Not at all – we focus on active candidates only “To what extent does your recruiting organization focus on hiring passive talent? (‘Passive talent:’ individuals who are not actively looking for a job).” LinkedIn 2013 Global Recruiting Trends 15
Reasons for not focusing more on passive talent reveal a “capabilities gap” Reasons for not focusing on passive talent 4 out of 5 top reasons show skill and tool deficiencies 1. We get enough quality active candidates already 2. We haven’t been successful at it in the past 3. It takes too long 4. We don’t have the tools to do it well 5. We don’t know how to find passive candidates 34% 28% 21% 17% 14% “For which reasons does your organization typically not focus on hiring passive talent?” LinkedIn 2013 Global Recruiting Trends 16
Our favorite tips: Engaging passive candidates 1 Immerse yourself in the candidate’s world. Get smarter on the industry, using sources like LinkedIn Today to keep up with hot relevant topics. Research your prospect’s current role and leverage mutual connections when possible. 2 Build relationships, avoid being transactional. Send fewer, more targeted InMails. Compliment profiles sincerely, and ‘dangle a carrot’ to lure them in rather than blasting out lengthy job descriptions. Ask to connect and continue the dialogue. 3 Listen and adapt. Invite candidates to talk about themselves, uncover their needs/motivations, and keep detailed notes on their profiles or within LinkedIn Recruiter at every touchpoint. Reflect on their input as you explain why your client’s opportunity is right for them. For more passive talent tips and best practices, visit: talent.linkedin.com/passivetalent.

Our favorite tips: Content marketing for recruitment firms 1 Plan. Your objective: educate and convert a target audience (for example, your customers or candidates) through high-quality content. 2 Target. Identify a specific target market for your content. Ask yourself: What does that person care about? What does he or she want to learn? 3 Create. The best content starts with a strong title that piques interest (e.g., “7 Common Mistakes Made in the Hiring Process”) and delivers tangible tips or takeaways. 4 Distribute. Share your content through channels including social media and your company’s website and blog. On LinkedIn, distribute your content via company status updates, your team’s personal status updates, targeted advertising, and LinkedIn Groups.
