Join Jim Durbin and the Kansas City MAPSS chapter for a 90 minute training session on the use of LinkedIn as a recruiting tool. This presentation is based on the LinkedIn:Recruiting Companion DVD, and participants will take one of the DVD's home in addition to the live lecture.
LinkedIn is increasingly becoming the social network of choice for businesses and passive job-hunters. In an age where e-mail and voicemail can easily be avoided, LinkedIn represents a new and exciting channel that candidates prefer to use as an initial contact with recruiters.
"In this 90 minute presentation, Jim demonstrates a step by step walk-through of how he uses LinkedIn to source, connect and hire candidates. This video is designed to be effective both for internal recruiters and third party firms.
Chapters for LinkedIn: Recruiting Companion include:
1) Introduction to LinkedIn
2) Sourcing For Candidates
3) Connecting With Prospects: Messages That Work
4) Checking References Inside LinkedIn
5) LinkedIn Tools and Packages
6) The Salesman’s Guide To LinkedIn.
7) LinkedIn Marketing
The LinkedIn website is an effective tool for building and maintaining a close network of referrers for employment. Learn the secrets from an expert at the intersection of social media and recruiting."
The meeting includes lunch at the Hereford House in Leawood Kansas.
