Do you connect with recruiters on LinkedIn?

Take note job seekers; you absolutely should connect with recruiters on LinkedIn. When a recruiter and a job seeker join forces, it can be a win for both. According to a 2013 Jobvite study, 94% of recruiters and employers search for candidates on LinkedIn.

Keeping this in view, how do you get recruiters to notice you on LinkedIn?

  1. Flesh it out:
  2. Have a picture and show personality:
  3. Be Active and Get Connected:
  4. Use Keywords to increase your visibility.
  5. 5. Make it specific so you don't show up in the wrong searches.
  6. Indicate your level of job search activity.
  7. Adopt a recruiter's mindset.

Do you have to pay for a recruiter?

Most times, the employer pays a recruiter to find the company the perfect candidate, leaving the job seeker to benefit from the help without worrying about shelling out a lot of money to do it. Generally, employers will pay recruiters 15 to 25 percent of your annual salary in a one-time fee.

How do you pay a headhunter?

Contingency recruiters get paid once they find the right candidate for the job (usually 25% of a candidate's salary). Recruiters working on this basis are often times competing with the client's internal HR department which will also be conducting a search for the same job.
