By far the best professional candidate database out there

I would not be able to do my job successfully without LinkedIn Jobs. A vast majority of my placements have come from LinkedIn, and there is nothing better than going through incoming applications and finding several solid candidates with relevant skills sets who are actively showing interest in your job posting. LinkedIn Jobs delivers.

Pros

No other platform comes close to LinkedIn in terms of candidate quality and professional networking. Where postings to most job boards might yield 3 strong candidate applications, LinkedIn could produce 9 excellent incoming candidate applies. Jobs are so easy to post, and you can also research industry insights to see how your opportunity compares with similar openings in the market.

Cons

Its expensive (worth every penny if you use it religiously, but expensive none the less).

Reasons for Switching to LinkedIn Jobs

Monster didn't have a strong enough candidate pool for the job openings we were working on.

One of the best and more robust job boards around.

Pros

LinkedIn is a valuable asset for any organization. Not only can you post and recruit for positions, but it gives your organization a voice and potential recruits a chance to peek inside to see company values and culture. Additionally, its networking functionality is an incredible value add as it allows you to look into a candidate's history and network of friends.

Cons

This software has matured over the years and has brought about several great changes. However, its job posting pricing can be a bit unfriendly to small businesses or non-profit organizations. Additionally, its search functionality for job postings often returns positions outside of search parameters.

Reasons for Choosing LinkedIn Jobs

LinkedIn's networking capability and the ability for an organization to make social posts made it an easy choice for us.

Social Media for Professionals

I've been exploring LinkedIn jobs again after 2 years and I can say that I appreciate it more today because I get to showcase my credentials, experiences, certificate and licenses, and my skills. It's practically a cute version but more complex version of a resume. And speaking of resume, you can even build your own resume here, it will help you find the skills you need and even get free tests and trainings on the site, how cool is that?

Pros

LinkedIn has so many features to offer, but what I like the most is the "connection" option, it's almost the same as adding a friend on FB but in a more professional way. It helps me connect with recruiters of different industries and even find my co-workers and alumni friends. I also like the recommendation feature where your co-worker can endorse your skills to prove to the employers that you really have the skills that you claim to have on your profile.

Cons

The limitations on connections but I understand it because it's under the premium version of the LinkedIn Jobs.

Reasons for Switching to LinkedIn Jobs

Because LinkedIn Jobs got it all. All the features you needed, and all the tools that will be helpful for your job hunting journey. Free tests, free resume builder, communication with the same and different industries. You can't just ask for more. Before you even think about a feature? LinkedIn already has it, it's even available on the free version!

Good points and bad points of recruitment

There can be no doubt that this profile-based job alert system is pretty good. The one-click application process is a bonus. Sometimes, however, all you receive is an automated acknowledgement from the recruiter, not necessarily the fault of LinkedIn, but perhaps they (LinkedIn) ought to force ALL recruiters to actually formalise a rejection so at least you know where you stand.

Pros

Possibly the strongest point in favour of LinkedIn Jobs is the fact that when you indicate you are looking for a job, you are fed relevant jobs based on your profile without being plagued by irrelevant jobs from fishing recruitment consultants. There can be no doubt that in terms of relevancy, LinkedIn tends to be more "transparent" than the average aggregate job site because more jobs pro-rate are placed directly by the actual recruiters rather than commissioned intermediaries. The fact that your job seeking is based on your public profile is of benefit to both you as the user and to recruiters out there - assuming there is honesty on both parties! It is also helped by the fact that direct-recruiters seem to have made a LinkedIn profile part of their recruitment requirements, which reinforces the usefulness of LinkedIn Jobs, and you can rely on the fact that unless you see otherwise (often rather obvious from any job advertisements), most positions will be genuine, as it is easy to see which are direct opportunities, and which are through (dreaded) third parties who may be on a fishing expedition. The process of completing your job profile couldn't really be simpler, and it does encourage you, because your peers will be present and will often see your profile, of being honest and open, which is not a bad thing.

Cons

Once the "good and the great" recruitment consultants start posting jobs for their "leading clients", many of which are neither leading nor in fact often even their actual clients, usability and transparency dips dramatically. The downside might be that you do not necessarily wish your public LinkedIn profile to say you are actively job hunting. Also, the fact that "busy" HR people are too often self-importantly "too busy" to perform the simple process of tracking and reporting back a rejection, if only out of simple courtesy and good manners, so the oneness is on you to remember that "if you don't hear back within 10 days you can assume they are not taking your application any further". However, in fairness, this new-found lack of courtesy is part of the problem with modern HR and no necessarily with LinkedIn

Best Job portal in the market

Overall experience is awesome because it has a lot of good features that will be benefitted to the organization. We can asses the skill of the candidate before extending any interview request. We can reply with courtesy denial email through the same also.

Pros

More reachability among the candidates. We can show case the jobs in a better and futuristic way. Candidates can easily apply to the Jobs without any long form filling experience. The process should be very smooth and easy. Realistic evaluation of the candidate from the Skills assessment program available in the Linkedin.

Cons

We can't gather more info like previous contacts to any other employer or previous details extensively. Candidates can't be flitted out according to the Job industry.

Reasons for Choosing LinkedIn Jobs

It has more public reachability and no need to do any sort of customization. It is also providing feature to login with different social media accounts and also it will remain logged in through out your session. If you logged out also it can remember and with a simple click it can be relogged in.
