THE BENEFITS OF LINKEDIN FOR JOBSEEKERS

LinkedIn connects the world's professionals and has more than 364 million members worldwide – it is the world's largest professional network on the Internet. The rise of LinkedIn has proved invaluable for jobseekers who, in this digital age, are looking more and more towards social media avenues for job vacancies and market information.

Aspen have invested in social media and we have successfully combined it with our traditional recruitment methods to provide an innovative and effective recruitment solution for both prospective candidates and our clients. The number of followers on our LinkedIn company page (Aspen People Ltd.) has steadily increased every month this year and our LinkedIn group (Aspen People Ltd. – Current Leadership Opportunities) has over 1,280 members and also continues to increase.

Our LinkedIn group provides members with regular updates on all our current assignments as soon as they go live each week and links to further useful information – we would therefore encourage anyone interested in current leadership opportunities, even speculatively, to join. You can regularly check our LinkedIn group for vacancy updates however, by joining our group, you can also be sent an email update every time we post a vacancy (if you choose this option in your settings) so that you can stay up to date. If you engage fully with LinkedIn it can be even more beneficial – as a member of our group our Consultants will be able to view your most up-to-date profile, allowing you to remain on their radar for any vacancies, current or future, which may match your background and skills.  Aspen have delivered executive search assignments across virtually all functional specialisms enjoying particular success at senior leadership level - our clients range from fast growing companies through to public sector agencies, charities and small social enterprises. Therefore, our LinkedIn group not only provides a variation of job vacancy information but can also provide you with useful networks and sector / market information.

Whilst LinkedIn remains our most effective social media recruitment tool, our other outlets such as Twitter, Facebook and Google+ also play an important role in networking opportunities so it is also worth staying connected with these.

If you are interested in any of our current vacancies please do not hesitate to call the office on 0141 212 7555 to speak with the most relevant Consultant.
