This session will have Robert Brandau demonstrate how he would use LinkedIn as a recruiter. You will watch as he actually searches for people.

You should walk away from this session understanding how one recruiter views LinkedIn. If you have connected with Robert Brandau directly via LinkedIn, he will comment on your LinkedIn profile.

Also, you need to join the Beltway Job Search Partners LinkedIn group. It will help you learn from this seminar.

    Agree with Adam's recommended approach in terms of the next step(s) on how recruiters use LinkedIn. Anything we can do to dig deeper in having a better appreciation for how recruiters operate would be another big step forward.

    An interesting session and perspective to have Robert discuss how he, a recruiter, leverages LinkedIn with some useful thoughts and recommendations. Some thoughts for strengthening into the future:

    Opening discussion / organization:

    Perhaps the presentation / discussion could have opened with a short (10-15 minutes total) three-part discussion: "As a recruiter, here is (a) how I would find your LinkedIn page? [search terms, groups, previous companies, etc ...???], (b) what makes me decide whether I do or do not want to scroll down after glancing at the top of your LinkedIn?, and (c) once I decided to look further, what am I looking for (positive, negative, etc ...). And, perhaps have several already identified pages (good and bad) to help highlight the points.

    This session, like all the group's session's I have attended so far, provided good, practical insights and food for thought that I can apply to my job search strategies. I always come away feeling enlightened and inspired. Meeting others who are in the same boat and exchanging networking leads and ideas is also very beneficial. Keep up the great work!

    Robert's presentation on Linked In was helpful and instructive. In addition to basic information about structuring Linked In profiles, he shared many insights on what recruiters focus their time and attention. Using actual attendees' profiles, Robert gave all attendees a number of pointers to improve and enhance Linked In as a tool. And, as always, this BJSP event provided an excellent opportunity to network with fellow job seekers.

    Every BJSP meeting I have attended has been helpful and informative. I always come away with at least 2 or 3 points to consider. I came away with 2 full pages of notes from this session. I've been struggling with how to make my LinkedIn profile more effective. Every question I had thought of before the meeting was answered.

    Great session with very useful insights into how recruiters view and interpret all elements of one's LinkedIn presence and activities. Thanks, Robert!

    LinkedIn is a great way to be highly visible in today's job search market, share relevant information and connect with people. Robert's perspective was valuable and well worth the time! Thanks!

    I thought the subject matter, Robert's own experience as a seasoned recruiter, and the interactive participation by the attendees was absolutely exceptional. No matter how much we think we might know about LinkedIn, there is always something new which comes to the forefront in a OMG moment. Given the number of attendees at this workshop and the feedback at the end, there is no question that a follow-on LinkedIn/Recruiter session would be more than welcomed. A good working knowledge of how recruiters use LinkedIn will clearly enhance our job search effort.
