In this issue, I wanted to let you know about the new book "Happy About LinkedIn for Recruiting"

This book is priced higher than traditional books since it's a podbook. Not only do you get an eBook or tradebook, you receive access to a password controlled site where you have access to the 12 hours of raw interviews. You also receive a $95 job posting from LinkedIn for free as well as over $450 in other offers (see e-mail below for more details). Although the book will be available for a while, these offers are available for a limited time. Since the book comes with a money-back guarantee, why don't you buy it, learn how to use LinkedIn effectively, and take advantage of these offers(1). You will be glad you did!

With "Happy About LinkedIn for Recruiting" you will learn:

  • Why big biller recruiters see LinkedIn as a very effective way to market their services and build their networks (and how they do that!)
  • Why LinkedIn is the smart way to start a search for candidates and often the best tool to complete a search
  • How you can use LinkedIn to find and develop new business in a trust-based network
  • How using LinkedIn effectively can turn what would once have been cold calls into warm calls, with door-opening introductions and third party endorsements.

If have any questions please feel free to contact me directly.

Reviews of "Happy About LinkedIn For Recruiting"

"Having created the first job board on the Internet and watching/supporting the industry as President of Monster and now as Executive Director of Direct Employers Association, I have a broad view of the overall recruiting marketplace. If you are a recruiter today, you should be using LinkedIn as one of the tools in your arsenal. If you are using LinkedIn as a recruiter, you need to read this book to pick up some of the hidden nuggets that often take months, if not years to unravel."
