How LinkedIn can help you deliver a great candidate experience
Candidate experience challenges are business challenges
The experience candidates have with your company throughout the hiring process can turn them into lifelong fans—or discourage them from ever interacting with you again. That makes improving the candidate experience more than just a hiring priority: it’s a business imperative, too.
LinkedIn’s hiring solutions can help you deliver an exceptional candidate experience from the very first touchpoint to the last. Learn how to use our solutions to inform and excite candidates, have more meaningful conversations, and show them you respect their time.
Candidate Experience Challenge #1
Candidates aren’t sure if your company is the right fit for them
Inform and support their job search with LinkedIn Career Pages
Every candidate is looking for something different. By creating an authentic and compelling LinkedIn Career Page, you can make it easy for them to research your company on a platform they already use to make career moves—driving more qualified applications.
Bring your culture to life. Give candidates a sense of what it’s like to work at your company. Use pictures, videos, employee testimonials, and more to tell your company’s story and help candidates determine if it’s a good match.
Share tailored content. Ensure that people visiting your page don’t have to scroll through endless content to find the information they need. Create targeted audience pages that make candidates feel like you’re speaking directly to them—and in their own language.
Spotlight the right open roles. After a candidate has explored your Career Page and have seen what your company has to offer, help them take the next step. The dedicated jobs tab automatically recommends the most relevant roles for them and shares personalized insights to guide their search.
Candidate Experience Challenge #2
Candidates receive uninspiring, irrelevant, or repetitive messages
Have more meaningful conversations with LinkedIn Recruiter
The messages you send to candidates can influence their perception of your company for years to come, even if they don’t respond. With LinkedIn Recruiter, you can send the right message to the right candidate—leaving them eager to respond.
Quickly identify promising candidates. Rather than spamming people who aren’t a great match for the role, rapidly identify candidates who’ll be excited to hear from you. LinkedIn Recruiter’s advanced search filters and up-to-date insights on 740M+ members can help you build a strong shortlist and prioritize your outreach.
Craft personalized messages in seconds. Reach out to candidates on a platform they already use to grow their career—no contact details required. All their information will be right at your fingertips, so you can easily tailor your outreach and show them that you’re paying attention.
Collaborate better with increased visibility. View your team’s complete communication history with candidates to minimize mistakes that make them feel like their time is being wasted. You can even tag teammates in to get their feedback or share a profile they might be interested in, allowing you to be more strategic and efficient.
Candidate Experience Challenge #3
