The LinkedIn Recruiter Certification Exam is Now Available Online

April 15, 2015

In the fall of 2013, we launched the LinkedIn Certification Professional – Recruiter program, the only official LinkedIn certification. Since then, thousands of talent acquisition professionals have passed the exam demonstrating their expertise in using LinkedIn Recruiter.

Today, we are excited to launch Online Proctoring – a convenient test taking option that makes it easy for our customers to take the exam from anywhere using their computer.

To date, recruiters could only take the exam at an onsite test center. We understand that for some of our customers this takes valuable time away from their desks and is not an ideal option. Our launch today will allow everyone the flexibility to take the exam from wherever best suits their busy schedule. These exams are virtually monitored by trained proctors to uphold exam integrity. The option to take the exam at an onsite test center will continue to be available.

We are very excited about helping LinkedIn Recruiter users become experts, stand out among peers and accelerate their careers with the certification program. Kelly Bryant, Senior Sourcing Specialist at Cyberonics says, “Becoming certified helped me be more efficient, discover quality talent faster and build pipelines. It also boosted my credibility with hiring managers and industry leaders.”

Talent Acquisition leaders across the globe have put their entire teams through the certification program and are seeing great results from the program. Bryan Rice, Director, Global Talent Acquisition at Stryker shared that “In Q3 2013, we added training and certification to our on-boarding process, the team took the exam by end of 2014. We got a 40% increase in the hires from Recruiter within one year of the program, 70% increase in the second year.”
