As recruiters and HR Pros get back to work this week, it’s a great time to clean house – and I don’t just mean cleaning out your closet and finally getting rid of those dusty old shoes you’ll never wear again – but to completely reassess your utilization of recruiting tools such as LinkedIn. Knowing how to navigate LinkedIn is simply not enough.
LinkedIn has more than 130 million professionals completing their profiles, connecting with others and sharing insights and opportunities: that’s a lot of data. At the upcoming Social Recruiting Strategies Conference, Ajax Social Media’s Jason Seiden and Craig Fisher will share the latest on how to make social media a practical – and invaluable – part of your recruitment strategy.
At this month’s Social Recruiting Strategies Conference January 24-26th, Ajax Social Media – the first certified Linkedin Trainer in North America – will walk attendees through tips and techniques for optimizing your use of LinkedIn as a recruiter. Attendees will learn how to build a professional and SEO friendly profile that attracts business, identify how to connect with clients and candidates in a professional manner and learn how to build your company’s reputation through LinkedIn groups, discussions, events and other applications.
Join Jason Seiden and Craig Fisher on January 25, 2012 in San Francisco, CA at the Social Recruiting Strategies Conference.
