Scott Robarge: LinkedIn as a Recruiting Tool

A veteran recruiter in the high technology sector, Scott Robarge is the founder of Another8. Scott Robarge utilizes a variety of software and web-based tools to identify and profile potential recruits. Among social media alternatives, LinkedIn has emerged as an effective site for recruitment activities.

With a current membership of 120 million professionals, LinkedIn remains the most business-focused among significant social media sites. More importantly, LinkedIn addresses the needs of recruiting professionals by providing three levels of professional membership specific to their specialty. Depending on their account level, members can search member profiles by several parameters, including advanced keyword searches. Recruitment firms or their client companies can also create “company pages” on LinkedIn to raise their profile and visibility among job-seekers. Additionally, recruiters can join groups that are industry-specific candidate pools, and they can correspond with members in those groups to further identify matches between postings and appropriate professionals with LinkedIn profiles.
