With growing categorization and sub categorization of businesses and functions, recruitment jobs become more difficult. HR managers and headhunters find this to be a challenging task especially because more than one third of job seekers do not post their resume on job sites. To counter the challenges and reach candidates with relevant work experience, LinkedIn offers solutions for job seekers.
