Event Description

LinkedIn® remains a top site for sourcing due to its accumulated "big data" and messaging capabilities.

However, LinkedIn® users face serious search and messaging limitations today compared to only a few years ago. LinkedIn's own "how to search" documentation contains errors (we'll provide a corrected version in this class).

If you have a Basic or Premium account, you need to be aware of the ongoing changes to LinkedIn® search that cause counterintuitive (even wrong) results. The search interfaces for School alumni and Company employees have also been quietly updated, and do not work as you might expect. For all accounts holders, LinkedIn® has severely limited the Boolean search. Add more than a handful of ORs, ANDs, or NOTs to your search, and you will get no results.

Fortunately, we can overcome many of these limitations! In this class, we cover the best practices for effectively using and getting the most out of LinkedIn®. The course also explains the differences between account types to help you to choose which account is right for your needs. Whatever type of LinkedIn account you have, the workarounds demonstrated in this class will boost your confidence and productivity.

Class Outcomes: You will learn a collection of workarounds and best practices to make LinkedIn® Sourcing more productive than ever before. These include alternatives to or workarounds for many limitations holding your back on LinkedIn®: special search features, getting around the Boolean limits, and more!

Who will benefit: Recruiters, Sourcers, Business Development professionals, and anyone whose job involves searching for professionals online will benefit from this course.

Included: For live and recorded classes alike, all who register will receive the complete recording and presentation slides. 

30 Days Support: This class includes our 30-day online support guarantee. Get answers to your questions, additional examples, and suggestions for implementing what you learn!

Optional Workshop Session: For the live version of the class, you'll get extended Q&A and real-time demonstrations of how to apply what you've learned to your daily work. In recorded form, the workshop session provides additional examples and practice exercises to work through on your own time.
