There is a new trend of hiring via LinkedIn. Employers and recruiters are scanning LinkedIn regularly to find suitable new employees. This new and growing trend means that people are regularly being approached via LinkedIn with job or contract opportunities. Many employers feel that they know the type of person that they want to hire and so it is much easier and quicker to approach the person directly than wait for the person to come to them.
Even with high unemployment, employers and recruiters alike are using LinkedIn to attract the person with the right type of skill set. LinkedIn advises the employer of your skill set, your experience, your capabilities and your achievements. It even gives the employer an idea of the impression that you have made on your former colleagues, clients or bosses. It is a great way for employers to view your public image.
