HOW TO: Find Recruiters on LinkedIn — Infographic

Find Recruiters on LinkedIn

by Donna Svei on July 17, 2013

LinkedIn’s membership includes over one million recruiters worldwide. But how do you find them? This infographic expands on a post I wrote last week, 10 Keywords Found in Recruiters’ Job Titles.

It 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.

I have tested this process for several clients over the last week. With one exception, it has proven to be a very 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!
