Jorgen Sundberg of social recruiting specialists Link Humans in London recently shared his pearls of wisdom on LinkedIn and recruitment for the new version of Recruitment Juice.

In this first video, watch him talk about the main do’s and don’ts in using the Recommendation Engine on LinkedIn:

– Focus on decision makers within client companies: avoid mates recommandations, back to back recommandations or indebted recommandations.

– Don’t have more than 5 to 10 recommandations! Although, if you live in North America, volume of recommandations has proven to be important.

Don’t hesitate to sign up for Recruitment Juice Lite for free, where you can find more of those episodes and really great content for recruiters!
