"LinkedIn Recruiter Lite is very robust for the cost!"

What do you like best?

It's very affordable, so LinkedIn Recruiter Lite can be helpful for smaller companies who don't need to do a TON of hiring. You can do Boolean searches and get quite granular with whom your'e looking for.

What do you dislike?

I didn't like how the LinkedIn Team tried to upsell me when they set up a training for LInkedIn Recruiter Lite. I mentioned up front that I didn't need to upgrade, but they kept showing me features of the upgraded version.

When moving to another team within my company, I lost all of my InMails from my account. They couldn't recover them. Also, when you want to cancel Recruiter Lite, you need to email them to get refunded for your unused InMails. Pretty manual.

Recommendations to others considering the product

To save money, try to reach out to people who've set their account to receive InMails for free. Look for the LinkedIn gold badge while searching for people. This can save you $10 per free InMail you send.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Hiring great talent is a major part of any business's success. LinkedIn Talent helps us do that by finding people who come from companies we like, and from schools we trust.

"Linkedin the solution to your need for trained and reliable employees"

What do you like best?

Unlike other social networks, Linkedin is especially oriented towards professional profiles. Its main objective is to connect different professionals in any sector, to generate business and expand professional contacts. And if that were not enough, Linkedin already has more than 150 million users and the possibilities it offers are becoming more extensive every day

What do you dislike?

519/5000

Linkedin like any other social network, presents the same risk, which is the lack of privacy. These sites can gather considerable amounts of personal information, the main ones being the email addresses. however, to get the most out of it, the user must disclose information about their current and past employers, as well as their contact information. The user assumes a significant risk of identity theft in the case that a crime is committed with the security of LinkedIn.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Linkedin allows you to publish your own ads for job applications at competitive prices. Through its huge network of filters you can enter the profiles of potential employees for your company. In addition, thanks to the internal reference system you will get reliable information about the candidates.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

LinkedIn can generate more business, more job opportunities and more money than any other digital media, as it helps maintain direct contact with the leaders and referents of a particular industry or sector. In addition, it also encourages contact between professionals as it uses your online resume as a tool for your professional promotion.

"LinkedIn is an Essential Tool for Successful Recruiting"

What do you like best?

Searching for candidates via LinkedIn Talent is intuitive and reinforces positive recruiting habits. A clear picture of candidates is presented with all relevant information, without creating an overload of information.

The Advanced Search parameters are unrivaled compared to many other applicant tracking systems.

Sending InMails drastically improves candidate response rates for hard-to-source locations and requisitions.

What do you dislike?

The application of messaging is slightly bugged and sending attachments can be unsuccessful. The messaging tool itself could use more functions for following up with responsive candidates and tracking conversations.

There is a slight lag between LinkedIn notifications and email notifications.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Dive in to the recruiting benefits, search functionality, and job searching aids LinkedIn Talent provides. There is a wealth of knowledge at your fingertips, and this service helps already proficient recruiters gain an edge. The usability and ease of access become apparent in minimal time, and as with any software, the more comfortable you are using it the more benefit you will see.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Sourcing for difficult requisitions is solved with LinkedIn Talent in more ways than one (isolated search areas, innumerable search constraints and filters, candidate preferences, and profile openness, to name a few).

Top talent is discovered via LinkedIn Talent, as a significant portion of job seekers rely on LinkedIn, and more importantly, solely on LinkedIn.

Candidates who are open to new opportunities are given a medium to introduce themselves to recruiters and new business opportunities, which takes care of a necessary "first step" in the hiring process.

"Great tool for online networking and browse the future company"

What do you like best?

the best thing is you can browse and research the potential company that you will be interested. this is pretty useful that you can research the skill set needed to be qualified for this job since it allow you to connect to other relevant personnel in the future company.

What do you dislike?

that other party will be notified that you are viewing their profile, so it will be kinda embarrassing. i personally will be in a odd situation during an interview facing the interviewer.

Recommendations to others considering the product

i think you should allow user to turn on the feature and not let other people to know they were browsing your page.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

one of the business problem is that you will be knowing the qualification of the hiring candidated.

Benefits is that you will be knowing the skill set that the candidate has, so that you will be able to make a better decision in terms of hiring the potential candidate

"My Personal Review of LinkedIn Talent"

What do you like best?

The best features of LinkedIn that appeal to me most is the app, it's fast and user friendly. I don't get spammed with notifications because it's easy to turn them on and off whenever I need, its important to me that I have and easy time customizing my applications at any time. I also have the LinkedIn app slideshare and I think the ability to save the wealth of information from this app offline is super useful in case of any WiFi interruptions, I have learned so much to contribute to my business model from slide share that is hard to find if you don't know to look for it.

What do you dislike?

I dislike the profile page a bit, I think some of the information needed to complete your profile is superfluous. I understand you should have your best credentials available to make great business connections, but some of the criteria for completion seems more personal than for business ventures.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I definitely recommend LinkedIn for anyone who owns a business, is looking to own a business or to just make helpful connections in their field. I also recommend LinkedIn to students, it's best to research and build relationships with potential employers.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am solving the issue of connecting with other people of my demographic who are also in the same business, I have connected with many people my age and younger and have had a few beneficial business relationships over the time that I first signed up for LinkedIn.

"A great tool for talent acquisition - but has its limitations"

What do you like best?

Ability to drill down on exactly who you're looking for and reach out to them directly, or see if there's a mutual connection to help facilitate the conversation. It's the largest network you're going to find when it comes to a broad range of contacts/talent.

What do you dislike?

It can be pricey.

Everyone uses it. This creates InMail fatigue in certain sectors and markets, making it difficult to get replies from certain types of people in the network.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a powerful tool - spend the time learning how to use it effectively to maximize your ROI.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Utilize LinkedIn Talent for many different challenges - finding talent with specific skillsets, industry experience, and former employers is great. Using it to analyze how quickly competitors are growing is a great insight as well.
