Improving Outreach Efficiency with Data
Kristie started a new role in a new city at search and staffing firm, MDI Group. She was tasked with finding out which of their existing accounts were in need of IT talent, and thought it would take her months to research the entirely new market.
Luckily, with LinkedIn Talent Insights she was able to search in real time for companies in the Charlotte area that employed people in IT helpdesk positions. Using this list of companies, Kristie then accessed the company report in Talent Insights, where she could examine how companies were gaining or losing IT talent. She used this information to prioritize and structure her initial outreach to each prospect, adding credibility to her messaging. As a result, Kristie has secured several client meetings and saved a massive amount of time contacting only those companies with urgent hiring challenges.
Prioritized prospects. New to Charlotte, Kristie used Talent Insights to learn about the market and prioritize companies with the most IT help desk vacancies.
Increased efficiency. By capturing an understanding of company talent flows and needed skills all in one tool, she can save valuable research time.
Secured new leads. Using LinkedIn Talent Insights data, Kristie has secured meetings with two clients who were unresponsive to previous outreach.
