Do you know someone in business who is still holding out on this whole “social media fad” thing? Someone who thinks that social media has nothing to offer their business, that's for teens and nothing more? Well, here's another factoid that you can use to help drag them, kicking and screaming, into the year 2012: LinkedIn is making a name for itself as a recruitment tool.
I mean, think about it. It makes sense.
LinkedIn already is the place for corporate networking. They've evolved now to offer job postings, recruitment, and a management system for those pesky resumes you get when you advertise for a job. It has virtually taken the place of the corporate recruiter, or at least made that guy learn how to head-hunt via the interwebs—assessing talent, interviews, etc.
And of course, you already know some talented people who know their way around the social media “fad.” The good folks at Addison Tech can help you out. Cause we're good like that.
And no, LinkedIn isn't paying us to say this. LinkedIn, in all likelyhood, doesn't know that we exist. All opinions here are exactly that: opinions.
