Webinar with Martin Lee – The New LinkedIn
Free for members
While LinkedIn remains a top site for sourcing due to its accumulated “big data” and messaging functionality, Researchers, Sourcers, Recruiters and all who use the site for business networking are encountering challenges using LinkedIn – even more so since the recent updates to the LinkedIn’s desktop user interface (UI).
Depending on which type account they have, members now face serious search limitations, such as the inability to search by a postal code and radius. LinkedIn’s own search tip sheet and help documentation has mistakes (Martin will provide a corrected version). On Premium accounts such as Sales Navigator and LinkedIn Recruiter, the new search syntax is not intuitive, and with the new UI prospects who have non-standard company names or job titles simply won’t show up in search results.
Fortunately, we can overcome most of these limitations! In this webinar, Martin will cover all of LinkedIn’s limitations (new and old) that slow down searching and messaging candidates. He will explain how to overcome each restriction. Whatever type of LinkedIn account you have, the clever workarounds demonstrated in this webinar will boost your confidence and productivity.
NOTE: By joining the webinar, you commit to NOT publicly sharing any of the tips online.
Online Training Webinar with Martin Lee – Partner at Brain Gain Recruiting EMEA & APAC
Training Session Topic – Advanced Boolean & Google
As researchers Google is probably our best tool but sifting through the vast amounts of information to get to what we really want to see can be time consuming and daunting.
In this training session Martin will go through how Google works and the operators and syntax available to us. He’ll also cover the main concepts, best practices, and techniques to craft expert searches for finding any sort of professional online, regardless of skillset, location, or industry.
In addition some free tools that will help you extract web search results into reports and Excel files.
Attendees are likely to have a good understanding of searching Google already. We plan to have a good amount of time for Q&A, live searches.
