Class Description: Participate in a step-by-step instruction from the "Social Media Headhunter" on new strategies for using LinkedIn to find and hire candidates for your company. Jim Durbin will demonstrate a point by point walk through targeted for corporate and executive recruiters.

The LinkedIn website is an effective tool for building and maintaining a close network of referrers for employment, but how does that help you hire people faster and with more quality? In an age where the email and voicemail are being replaced with Facebook and Twitter, LinkedIn stands out as the professional social network at the center of your recruiting strategy.

  • Updated strategies for 2011 on building a network that values hires and quality referrals.
  • How to connect with prospects inside and outside the platform.
  • How to craft messages that generate responses.

  • What to look for in profiles of serious job seekers.
  • To measure and automate performance based on time, prospect flow and successful hires.
