Over the last few years Linkedin has become a household name for recruiters. It’s become a crutch for some and the first and last place for most in my experience. With that said, I am a big proponent of groups. I create them,
I manage them, I grow them and yes, I place people from them; routinely.
More on how to Create, Grow, Engage and Place from your groups in another post, but today I wanted to share some great details on owning a group and distributing job feeds through to your memberships. It’s simple to do and very effective.
- Members who get daily / weekly updates will see your job feed. Clearly an advantage for corporate pages / groups
- You can edit the job feed on the fly for customization and critical openings
- You can create broad feeds or very distinct feeds based on clients, location, industry etc.
Among other positives, used properly this feature will be a huge driver of traffic to your career site, postings and/or event pages.
Here is the video version on how to set up and display the job feed: (Screen shots below)
If you are the owner of a LinkedIn group or a clients LinkedIn group you have the ability to control what your members see and were you wish to drive traffic / activity.
Step 1: Click Get Started
