Useful LinkedIn Tools Caribbean Human Resource Managers Should Know
LinkedIn Tools that can help Caribbean recruiters hire the best employees
LinkedIn is by far the largest professional network in the world. It provides both job seekers and recruiters with a wealth of options for future employees and employment in a fully digital space. While it’s still growing in popularity and use in the Caribbean, regional recruiters should stay on top of how to use the platform efficiently. Many of the features LinkedIn provides can really help people working in Human Resources to have a more seamless experience when hiring.
Here are some tools we believe every Caribbean recruiter should know:
LinkedIn Solutions’ Resource Page
This resource page has a wealth of information for recruiters. It has numerous articles advising recruiters on how to write effective job postings, how to get higher engagement on postings and so much more. The page also provides tips and tricks for recruiters outside of the LinkedIn space. Such as articles that advise on conducting interviews and examples of ways human resource managers can help support employees and develop their skills. It is a great page for industry updates and for information to stay current.
LinkedIn’s Job Network Analytics
The “Job Network” analytics gives recruiters the ability to gauge the performance of their job posting. The benefit of this is that recruiters can look into a post’s performance and see information such as the types of candidates who are viewing the post, where they are located, their job titles and more. This information is a great way to ensure that your post is attracting the right applicant. From this data, you can then see if your post is performing exactly as you intended or you can make the relevant adjustments to attract your ideal candidate.
LinkedIn Recruitment Ads
While some Caribbean recruiters are reluctant to try this feature, it is a great tool to get the job done more efficiently. Recruitment Ads also use an algorithm to ensure that your ad will automatically be placed to your ideal candidates. It will also attract passive candidates and it is known to have a higher applicant rate.
LinkedIn Recruiter is a subscription service on the site that is mainly targeted for bigger companies as the benefits of it are valuable for companies that are actively recruiting. Some of its features include an advance search which allows you to filter your searches for information such as education, years of experience, years in different positions and more! You can also contact clients directly using InMail (which LinkedIn reports as having a higher response rate), unlimited access to profiles and a full view of candidates’ profiles. The real benefit of the service is that it makes the experience of finding an ideal candidate more seamless and much faster.
