Learn How eBay Used LinkedIn Recruiter to Cut Cost Per Hire by Half

November 24, 2009

John Curran, Global Staffing Programs Manager at eBay, shares his experience with Recruiter, LinkedIn’s advanced recruitment solution.

He explains eBay’s decision to equip all of their senior recruiters with a LinkedIn Recruiter seat:

  • Finding passive applicants who never look for a job and never post their resume on traditional job boards
  • Getting a 50% response rate on their InMails sent to very targeted passive candidates
  • Cutting the cost per hire in half compared to that of traditional job boards
