How to be contacted via LinkedIn

I am an Agency Recruiter and use LinkedIn daily. Both Agengy Recruiters and Corporate Recruiters use LinkedIn to find active and passive job seekers. Professionals use LinkedIn to network and to find out about potential job opportunities. The bad news is unless someone is a 1st contact (or shared member of a group) they are not able to send you a message.

If you are looking for a job or if you want to get contacted about job opportunities make sure to add a personal email address to your LinkedIn profile.

Here is how to do it:

1. Profile

2. Edit Profile

3. Contact Settings

Where it reads, "What advice would you give to users considering contacting you?" write in your personal email address.

4. Save Changes

Don’t think you will get a lot of spam or a thousand job emails. You are not that great so stop kidding yourself. Also, you may know of a great referral who would be a good fit for the job. You can forward that email to your colleague, have great Karma and get all the green lights on the way home from work.

Job Board Scorecard - Unbaised Job Board Review

We set up a new site called Job Board Scorecard. With so many job boards we wanted to share an unbiased resource for staffing agencies and companies as to where they should post their openings. Job Board Scorecard lets employers and recruiters share their experiences and successes working with the major job boards.

What is NOT the goal? Bashing the job boards or saying job boards are dead…how many jobs have you filled through Twitter?

Job Board Scorecard provides accurate data regarding web traffic and tells which board is best for a specific type of job. Job Board Scorecard also breaks down recent trends such as PPC job postings, job board aggregation, and sponsored jobs. The site also touches on the quality of candidates and gives an overview of costs per posting.

Please visit Job Board Scorecard and give your honest opinion.
