The Power of Professional Prospecting

#TChat Preview: The Power Of Professional Prospecting

The TalentCulture #TChat Show is back live on Wednesday, March 19, 2014. #TChat Radio starts at 6:30 pm ET (3:30 pm PT) and the convo continues on #TChat Twitter chat from 7-8 pm ET.

Last week we talked about creating a “world of work” culture of optimism, and this week we’re going to talk about the power of professional prospecting via LinkedIn.

Since its launch, LinkedIn has been known as a recruiter and job seeker professional networking site, but it’s been extremely under-utilized as a recruitment search and marketing resource.

LinkedIn prospecting takes talent acquisition “lead generation” to whole new levels. Recruiters and HR pros can properly use LinkedIn to continually attract, find and engage with their ideal candidates by leveraging content marketing, influencer relations and so much more.

And you thought it was just getting old and tired.

Join #TChat co-creators and hosts @Meghan M. Biro and @Kevin W. Grossman as we learn more about better leveraging LinkedIn and professional prospecting with this week’s guest: Viveka von Rosen, CEO of Linked Into Business, co-founder of LinkedProspecting, author of LinkedIn Marketing: An Hour a Day, and host of the biggest LinkedIn chat on Twitter.
