"Linkedin Job Search"

What do you like best?

This is a great place for finding jobs and finding more people in your field of activity but depending on your connections and feed can sometimes go in the direction of social media.

What do you dislike?

The customer support is not as good as it should be. This needs to be worked on because you see so many bad reviews on the customer support and to have a strong company you need a strong foundation and that starts with support to your customers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do not give up if you get a few resumes that are not what you were looking for. Keep in mind if someone looking for a job and comes across an opening they are going to send a resume regardless if they qualify. You will find good candidates and you will also come across bad. I see a ton of negative reviews as well. This website should be your tool, use to filter out people you don't see fit to interview for the job listed, you get there resume with there application.

"Successful Job Search Tool"

What do you like best?

It shows job offers easily.

They protect data privacy.

It is possible to apply to jobs easily.

It's a professional network.

It is possible to meet and keep in touch with a big quantity of professional people all over the world.

There's a world of possibilities because LinkedIn shows not only job opportunities but posts in which you can find lot of professional information.

What do you dislike?

Some employers are not deploying the whole capability of this job searcher, what a pity that the most of them doesn't use the easy apply feature and some job seekers need to be redirected to the home page of the employer to fill its traditional forms.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I trust in LinkedIn, because it has shown me that is possible to find a job by this means. In fact I owe my current job to a LinkedIn search.

"Linkedin more than an ally "

What do you like best?

Linkedin is easy to use, generates job opportunities, allows us to communicate with related professionals in other parts of the world, can keep the curriculum vitae updated online and share important information, among other benefits. It allows us to be in contact with professionals and locate ourselves. It has a very nice interface and is extremely easy to use.

What do you dislike?

It can lend itself to defame someone else through negative comments. It is very easy to get personal data from someone through the available search engines.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a tool to show our best professional face and establish relationships whether they are business or information exchange. In addition to being able to participate in forums and online consultations with related professionals.

"Fantastic tool!"

What do you like best?

Job Search on LinkedIn is great - it shows me a very high quality of job matches, I can see a whole lot of related positions that may interest me, and I can see some basic (but important) data points. I also see recommendations, company trends, so many things. Comparatively speaking, Career Builder and Monster, just aren't in the same league. They feel like weak second or third cousins in comparison.

Getting visibility on positions I am seeking to hire is fantastic - driving more candidates to my positions. Job Search on LinkedIn is great - it shows me a very high quality of job matches, I can see a whole lot of related positions that are in the same zone as I am posting, and I can see some basic (but important) data points.

What do you dislike?

This is so tragic for a review, as its not fair. But, I don't see much competition in this sector - LinkedIn Job search is such a great tool, that there are very few competitors. I dont think they are as driven to improve as they could be.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is one of a great many tools available. For me, they are the clear industry leader in what I seek to achieve - a blend of social and practical purposes.

"Linkedin Recruiter Review"

What do you like best?

The candidate pool is very large as well as a strong ethical commitment to provide a strong service. There is a sense of community on LinkedIN not available on Monster.com or Careerbuilder. Though many just use it for resume hunting, I like to use it to stay connected with top talent and top people. I also like to see the career progress of my formal colleagues and

What do you dislike?

It's rather expensive as well as limiting contact information. Doesn't have the best management tools and they don't allow strong integration with ATS. LInkeIN needs to think about the next "big think". Combining Social and Search was smart, but now we need to move into crowd-sourcing and other services that can fully leverage current trends.

Recommendations to others considering the product

LinkedIn revolutionized recruiting by combining social and resume search. The next big step is combining search and crowd sourcing, hopefully LinkedIN has the insight to build that service.

"A Decent Job Search Engine"

What do you like best?

I really enjoy being able to monitor who has viewed my profile and/or my company's profile. I enjoy the ease with which I can connect to people and find out more about their career path. It is very easy to monitor your posts and applications and work out how to improve your content and/or how you present your profile from the feedback given.

What do you dislike?

On occasion I feel that potential employees who apply through Linkedin do not put forth as much effort as those who apply through other sites such as Indeed. The process is incredibly simple, which is great, but it could allow for employers to gather more information. That said, it is nice to view applications while putting a face to a name,.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very helpful tool that I would recommend using, though I think it should be used along with sites such as Indeed.

"The Exclusive Professional Network"

What do you like best?

LinkedIn by far has the best talent available. Many high level professional actively use LinkedIn, and the options available to be found is incredible. The elaborate search function allows both hiring organizations and the candidate to find what they're looking for - be it jobs or potential talent. Not only does LinkedIn benefit the applicant and recruiting, but it also allows all professional to grow their network and educate themselves with current news and business trends.

What do you dislike?

Because LinkedIn is so excusive and holds a niche in the market they can be a little pricey for even basic services for employers. Jobs postings and the recruiter seats can be quite expensive, so LinkedIn is really meant for your hard to fill positions. Using LinkedIn for anything entry level and clinical in nature can be tough as this sort of talent is not often targeted to become LinkedIn users. Executive Management sourcing and recruitment is next to none, but as stated Clinical Providers are not often found on LinkedIn if you're considering as a healthcare organization.

Recommendations to others considering the product

As an entry level candidate you will not find a plethora of job. Many organizations that are small to medium size do not have the budget to post "all" position on LinkedIn. Large organization often will have the bandwidth to post positions, but they may choose to only post their managerial or executive level. If it's branding and candidate connection that your company needs consider getting a organization page, but limit your recruiter seats and postings to save.

"Great at suggesting, hard to get noticed"

What do you like best?

I like that Linked In sends me emails with the latest job postings based on my experience, field, and location. It makes it very easy to find jobs to apply for when they are sent to me. Likewise, it's easy to log on and search for jobs by keywords as well.

What do you dislike?

I dislike how accessible the job application is to everyone so it is truly hard to get noticed. When I get an email to apply for a job, I know that many others have. It's so easy to just click through and send a resume via LinkedIn, so people just apply for every thing. It's really hard to stand out in this format. I also hate how hard it is to customize your application FOR that job. I have a lot of job experience that I want to share for certain jobs, not for other, etc. It's hard to separate this on LinkedIn.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would probably use this in tandem with other methods of job searching and hiring.

"Your Job Search Personal Assistant"

What do you like best?

Finding opportunities can be a full-time job. LinkedIn's dedicated Job Search application(s) go a long way to helping connect you with whatever it is you're looking for. Alerts and reminders can be tailored to specific companies, locations, positions and more to ensure you don't miss a great opportunity if you fail to open the app every day.

Neat features like notifying a company when you click the apply button (even if you don't finish the application) are great nudges to put you on the radar.

What do you dislike?

LinkedIn's biggest flaw is that its job list appears to be exclusive to LinkedIn. While it's certainly a dominant force for recruiters and talent experts, I still find myself checking 5+ other sites at the same time to find all relevant opportunities. It would be great if LinkedIn could somehow scrape these opportunities too (but perhaps give them less visual weight since I know recruiters are a big revenue source for the company).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to customize it and it can become your personal assistant in navigating the massive volume of great opportunities out there.

"LinkedIn Job Search Paid Version"

What do you like best?

The best part was knowing where you fit in, according to LinkedIn, in the ranking of candidates. I also liked the fact that there was some indication of expectant salary for positions, keeping track of jobs I had applied for and saving some to apply for.

Being an avid user of LinkedIn with many connections also allowed me to see who was working at companies where I was thinking of applying. I could reach out to them and ask questions prior to applying or if chosen for an interview.

The Learning center is great inside of LinkedIn as well. It gives you the option to take courses and have them appear on your LinkedIn Profile.

What do you dislike?

I didn't like that you didn't have a lot of options to sort for jobs by location. I couldn't search for jobs in different cities. If I chose a state or province I would miss posts to various cities in those provinces. LinkedIn has a problem with reporting who has viewed your profile and they are aware of this but it has never been fixed it.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Save as many jobs to apply for as you like. Take advantage of the learning center. Visit profiles of the people who have posted the job listing. Make use of this search being on LinkedIn and learn about the company before any job interviews.

"Wish Linkedin has a bigger network!"

What do you like best?

-Filters

-Profile Ranking

-You get to contact almost all the recruiters

What do you dislike?

This is a bit expensive considering the fact that the other job portals are free. Apart from that, the have an amazing platform but it would be better if they are can get more companies on board. If you do not have a premium account, you pretty much can't do anything on this platform.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Linkedin has a trial offering and it would be better to check the trial. However, there are not many service providers like Linkedin so the evaluation would result in you being comfortable with the platform or not.

"LinkedIn Job Search Review"

What do you like best?

I like that the job will alert the manager who posts the job when you apply, and sometimes shows the contact you can reach out to. I also like that it the employer can see your picture, which means they can put a name to a face. They can also see if your online, which helps for fast response. I like when it shows how many applicants.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that you can’t apply with your profile that frequently. That is the employers choice however. I think LinkedIn should make a feature where you can answer questions that the employer wants on the website, so you wouldn’t have to go to the employers application. I don’t like that it sometimes hides how many applicants there are.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely recommend it! My favorite job application resource so far!

"LinkedIn is great for job searchers and recruiters"

What do you like best?

I like that you can see what skills other applicants have so that you can compare yourself to see if you are the best fit for a role. As a recruiter, I like that you can see any connections you may have with a candidate before you reach out to them.

So many candidates applying for the same roles.

"The Best Recruiting Tool I've Used"

What do you like best?

The service is easy to use and straight forward. The UI makes sense and flows incredibly well. They've recently made several changes to make searching even better, including selecting a graduation date.

What do you dislike?

I don't like that it connects notifications to my personal linkedIn. I'll go in thinking I have messages but it turns out it is just my recruiter profile getting responses (not a bad problem to have tho!)

Recommendations to others considering the product

"Social media Job search"

What do you like best?

There are more chances for getting a job interview with the connections we make since it will help the recruiters to know your experiences and can get in touch anytime in the day or night with a feed or a message.

What do you dislike?

There are some privacy concerns such as people viewing your profile and sending unnecessary content. It takes a lot of time to view connection requests especially for people who already have huge connections. Recruiters might also completely rely on these sites to evaluate a candidates credibility which is not correct every time and in all the cases.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This service is good to filter out candidates based on their skills, certifications endorsements and recommendations. Recruiters should not rely just on the connections.

"Love using LinkedIn to find talented candidates. "

What do you like best?

Love that if you find a qualifying candidate, you can use the "similar" tool to find other candidates that have a similar background. LinkedIn really helps with connecting people and being able to put a face to a name. I have been able to connect with so many people around the nation and be able to help job seekers find their next opportunity.

What do you dislike?

I do not like that there isn't a requirement to get people to write about what they do in the roles. There are plenty of people on LinkedIn that don't take advantage of selling their experience. There have been times where I will overlook candidates that don't have their experience on their profiles.

"LinkedIn Job Search is on of the only tools I use to source and hire candidates."

What do you like best?

I love that I can create a more unique job posting with LinkedIn. We can include pictures of our team, testimony from current employees, and other skins to make our roles more attractive. The posting function is user friendly and easy to navigate. I also love that I can connect my profile to the role and candidates can directly reach out to me.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that you can't see the profiles of candidates that have applied to roles from LinkedIn's website. They don't collect profiles for you, just give you general comments on each candidate. I would like to be able to access their profiles directly so that I can see if connections in their network could be good fits as well.

"Best tool for job searching! "

What do you like best?

it focuses on quality profiles. We look at passive candidates who have experience relevant to our field so the search options are really important when narrowing our search.

What do you dislike?

it is very pricey. also, when we sponsor certain jobs, it takes awhile for them to appear i.e. a 24 hour window. I wish it was more immediate.

"Crappy Service"

What do you like best?

Nothing at all. It is the most useless service I have come across. If Microsoft thinks that LinkedIn Job Search is in any way "Machine Learning", then they are grossly mistaken.

What do you dislike?

Job searches don't appear based on a person's current job or industry. The job searches show up based on keywords. So, someone that is an Executive Assistant would actually get a job posting for an Executive Vice President. If someone is a VP at a company called AutoGrid (which has nothing to do with Automobiles), he or she would get job recommendations for an auto industry job.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes applicants only apply with their profile and it's hard to share with non-users. A resume share would be easier to pass on with internal hiring managers. We had some trouble linking a job to a location and received a lot of applicants outside the areas we were hiring making wedding through applicants a little more time consuming.

What do you dislike?

If you only have 1 recruiter seat and 2 recruiters, you can move the seat back and forth between the two people. But you need to send a request to Linked In to have the seat moved to the other recruiter. As an administrator, it would be better if you could move the seat yourself just like the hiring manager seats.

"LinkedIn Job Search is an Opportunity Tool"

What do you like best?

I do like how you can create search parameters to narrow the search results you receive. The viewed, saved and applied tabs are also very useful to keep track of job descriptions that have been visited. This is especially helpful as many times in professional networking sites you may lose track of where you saw something or where it was posted.

What do you dislike?

While I do love the search parameter features I feel like it could be a little more functional by allowing you to narrow down a little more by excluding some certain types of results.

Tweak your search parameters a couple different ways to see what gets you the best results for what you are searching for in an opportunity.

LInkedin has no customer service. Good luck finding a live human being to help you. They grabbed my personal data and will not return it. If this is not theft, it should be.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Don't.

"Awesome way to find a job!"

What do you like best?

I like that you can build your network of connections and look for jobs. It’s helpful to stay in touch with businesses and potential business partners.

What do you dislike?

There need to be more options when searching for jobs. It’s hard to narrow them down sometimes.

"Not a fan..."

What do you like best?

I do like seeing who has viewed my profile - though some have told me its an inconsistently correct feature. And I like being able to ramp up on a candidate job history before a call.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the searching options and the inability to export to a data file. I would like to be able to print a list to generate a call list.

To be effective, I need to find qualified people that are open to considering a new opportunity. LI routinely returns irrelevant data.

"Great Way to Connect "

What do you like best?

I like how I can search for job opportunities and then see the face of the hiring manager that I will be speaking with

What do you dislike?

The main thing that I dislike is that I am unable to private message people on the free site. You have to pay to get those extra features.

"One of the best!"

What do you like best?

LI has one of the most complete and diverse options for career opportunities. It is always one of the first sites I recommend to candidates. I also found my most recent career opportunity with this site.

What do you dislike?

It would be great to be able to tell when your application is viewed by the job poster. Also, many times I have learned that my application was distorted during the submission process. It makes me nervous to think about how many opportunities I may have missed due to not having my information presented in an easy format.

"Helpful if transitioning into something similar to current position "

What do you like best?

I like that I can quickly link to the company and get a sense of the culture as well as see if I know anyone connected.

What do you dislike?

Most companies don't post pay range and it becomes difficult to be transparent about pay when comparable position pay rates are not listed.

"Linkedin Review"

What do you like best?

Networking helped pull better candidate pool- seeing a "profile" instead of a resume gave a better idea of a person's background and ability. Huge candidate pool and more personal than other job search sites.

What do you dislike?

Not too much, it's improved a lot over the past couple years. A little annoying to have to pay extra to contact certain folks but it makes sense. Annoying that recruiters couldn't share an account. If LinkedIn noticed we used more than one laptop for an account they would threaten to suspend our license, when really one of our recruiters also worked from home. Rather annoying.

What do you like best?

I had mentioned this in a previous question, but see the jobs that are out there, with companies that I either didn't know were hiring, or didn't know existed makes this a valuable tool!

What do you dislike?

If there is one thing I would change it would be to increase search criteria in searching for vacancies.

What do you like best?

I like how you can look for a job within a certain area and see the estimated salary for that job.

What do you dislike?

The jobs are not rated to how they would most likely fit the ideal job you are hoping to find. Also, when you search for a job, it continues to give you the same jobs you've seen before and a lot of the job are not relevant to what you are hoping to find.
