Social Media Recruiting Specialist Jim Durbin Demonstrates Advanced Strategies for Using LinkedIn to Find the Perfect Job Candidate.
NOVATO, Calif. (September 7, 2012) -- LinkedIn is the first stop recruiters make when searching for qualified job candidates, which makes it harder to compete for the best candidates available. Where most recruiters do a superficial search, the best recruiters know how to dig below the surface to find hidden skills and talents that make their candidates really stand out. In the next Experts Connection (http://www.experts-connection.com) webinar entitled, “LinkedIn for Executive Recruiting: Beyond the Basics (2012 Edition),” social media headhunter Jim Durbin will offer step-by-step instructions into how to use advanced techniques that make LinkedIn your most powerful tool to find job candidates. The webinar is scheduled for Thursday, September 27, from 4:00 – 5:30 p.m. ET, (1:00 – 2:30 p.m. PT), and is sponsored by NETSHARE® (http://www.netshare.com).
LinkedIn continues to grow as the premier social network for business with more than 175 million profiles, including profiles from executives at every Fortune 500 company. LinkedIn is also one of the largest providers of recruiting services. This webinar will offer point-by-point instruction in how to use LinkedIn as the insiders use it, including a live demonstration that allows participants to follow along online.
In this 90-minute webinar, attendees will learn:
- The latest sourcing strategies for 2012, including techniques for both free and paid LinkedIn accounts.
- The fastest ways to search for candidates both using LinkedIn and outside of the network.
- Job posting strategies and recommendations as to how to generate employee referrals.
- Three ways to craft messages that generate responses from targeted candidates.
- Alternative contact strategies to reach passive candidates across a variety of industries.

“Recruiters have started to take LinkedIn for granted, which means they aren't utilizing its full potential,” said Katherine Simmons, CEO of NETSHARE and host of the Experts Connection webinars. “Once you understand the nuances, LinkedIn can become an incredibly powerful tool that will help you compete as a recruiter, as well as identify the best candidates for any job. Jim has made a science of using LinkedIn for recruiting, and this is a rare opportunity to see how a master uses the hottest recruiting tool available. This Master’s class will be invaluable to anyone in recruiting or HR.”
