Find New Employees with LinkedIn

LinkedIn training workshop

LinkedIn is a great tool in the recruitment process to attract and find new employees, but only if you combine passive, active ànd proactive strategies.


For Whom (or Who Will Benefit)

Recruiters, HR Managers, Hiring Managers (= managers with job openings in their team), HR Business Partners and all others involved in the recruitment process of an organization.



At the end of the training you will have learned the following:

  • What LinkedIn is (and what it is not)
  • How to achieve results with LinkedIn
  • How to craft an attractive personal and company profile (personal & employer branding)
  • How to showcase your job openings
  • How to build your network (fast)
  • How to turn your personal and company profile into a lead generation tool to attract new candidates
  • 10 ways to use LinkedIn to find new employees



There are two formats of this workshop:

  • One day hands-on workshop. This workshop is a mix of a theoretical framework, live examples and immediate implementation on your own computer (that you have to bring to the workshop).
  • Half day workshop. This workshop is a mix of a theoretical framework and live examples. You take notes during the workshop and implement the tips later at home or at the office.

In both formats there is a 10 week e-course follow up including a checklist (the checklist can also be used as a coaching tool).

A Larger Team – In-company workshops

When several people within your organization are interested in this training, it usually is more interesting to organize an in-company training session, tailored to your situation and needs.

We also advize to organize a joint workshop for recruiters and hiring managers so they learn to cooperate to find the talent you need.
