Pattie Hunt Sinacole offer tips on applying to a job posted on LinkedIn

The same standards apply to a candidates LinkedIn profile. However, there are perpetual posters who apply for almost any open role available. It would be difficult to respond to every candidate. Sometimes recruiters work odd hours and on weekends. The job may have been put on hold or another candidate has been hired.

Q: I recently applied for a role on LinkedIn and never heard back from the company. If you feel like you are a well-qualified candidate, you can reach out to the recruiter listed on the posting. Most of us have a current resume on our desktop and we can easily respond to a posting with a resume. However, there are ways you can use LinkedIn more successfully as a job seeker.

A candidate is qualified. This is frustrating! The recruiter then has to reach back out to the candidate, and request a resume. It should be well written and logical.Check out who you might know at the company. If a candidate takes several days to respond, that is a sign that this opportunity is not priority in their lives.The first impression is positive. However, there may be a reason why they havent contacted you and it may be unrelated to you. With smart phones - - and other technological innovations, we expect job hunters to respond if we call or email them. The resume is well written and there are no typos. Most employers post roles on LinkedIn when they are eager to generate a pool of qualified candidates for the role. A professional photo is part of the candidates LinkedIn profile. It is difficult to take those candidates seriously because they seem to apply for any and all jobs, rather than the roles for which they are most qualified.A resume is attached, as part of the online application. This might seem like a no brainer to some but many candidates do not attach a resume with your online application. When we reach out to a candidate, we are hoping for a quick response (within 24 hours or sooner). The LinkedIn profile includes a well-written job history and contact information. A: LinkedIn is a great recruitment tool for most roles. Is this typical? I would expect when a company posts a job on LinkedIn, they are serious about recruiting.
