February 13, 2013

Love is in the air this week and at LinkedIn, there’s one group of people we’re loving more than ever: the recruiters who transform their companies through the talent they hire.

Why do we love recruiters? We could go on all day, but here are 10 reasons to get started:


  1. By bringing in the right talent, they have massive impact on a company’s long-term success
  2. They know how to work hard AND play hard:

  5. They are expert networkers
