We worked with a client that wanted to return to Toronto after being laid-off from his position in metro Atlanta. We used advanced search filters on LinkedIn to find 107 Toronto-based recruiters who place professional engineers like him in Canada. After sending out invitations, 63 connected within five days. A second message from the client netted dozens of requests for his résumé, seven telephone interviews, and three face-to-face interviews. One of these led to him landing a great new job a short time later.

LinkedIn is a robust database that is grossly underutilized by the typical job seeker. You can open up a world of possibilities if you learn to mine the data it has to offer.

We can help!
