LinkedIn for Job Seekers

$395/per person+GST

Finding your way to the people who might hire you, in a complex job market takes skill, networking strategies and persistence. Anecdotal evidence suggests finding your next role is taking 2-3x the amount of time it may have taken five years ago. A majority of recruiters and internal talent managers are now using LinkedIn to find and place candidates for their roles and many roles are now hidden, only posted to a recruiters network via LinkedIn. If you do not have a profile on Linkedin or cannot be easily found with the right keywords, you are missing out on the opportunity to showcase your skills directly to an employer. In fact some companies are even stating that, especially for roles, which require communication or sales skills, candidates must have a LinkedIn Profile as a pre-requisite.  “Users with complete profiles are 40 times more likely to receive opportunities through LinkedIn”*
