After I finish my clients’ resumes and LinkedIn profiles, most of them want to know how to find a recruiter, or recruiters, to help them get a job. Because of this, I developed an infographic on how to find recruiters on LinkedIn (below).
The infographic gives you simple, step-by-step instructions on how to find both corporate and third-party recruiters — people who can be instrumental to the development of your career — on LinkedIn. I’ve focused on LinkedIn because, with over 1.5 million recruiter members, it’s Recruiter Central for Planet Earth.
I have tested the process outlined in the infographic for several clients over the last week. With one exception, it has proven to be an effective way to find recruiters relevant to my clients’ careers. The exception was a ubiquitous keyword that generated too many false positives.
Please bookmark this post for future reference. Also, feel free to share the infographic with friends, colleagues, and on your blogs. Enjoy!
