Why Recruiters LOVE Linkedin and HR leaders might HATE Linkedin.

Top 3 Reasons Why Recruiters (both corporate and external) Love Linkedin:
1) LinkedIn has become the best hunting ground for recruiters.
2) As more companies are asking their employees to become participants in “social media” candidate referral programs, more employees are site such as Linkedin, Facebook, Twitter – making it insanely easier for recruiters RECRUIT them.
3) Linkedin allows recruiters to easily build their target candidate pool.

Top 3 Reasons Why HR Leaders Might Hate Linkedin:
1) Your competition can now easily see who you have just hired, the secret ‘human capital’ of your company is no longer a secret.
2) If your employees like to showoff their work by posting on their profiles what they do, then your competition can get insight into what your folks are working on.
3) Increase turnover and backfill cost. Your competition can now easily send a message your key employees and invite them to tea.

These are my observations, now chime in with yours! Frankly, I'm torn about this one. I LOVE using Linkedin to recruit but I also hate to deal with turnover issues. Ugh!
