Recruiters don’t have to apply for roles anymore, they are constantly receiving messages through LinkedIn offering chats to find out what other companies offer. Recruiters we register report to receiving on average around 11 “lets have a chat” messages a week. Over half say if they are looking or not if the company looks good after doing their own research they will respond.
There is a giant disparity in what you think happens when you reach out to a recruiter, compare to what recruiters actually do on LinkedIn when they receive a message from you.
Sending an InMail to a potential hire is a small part of talent attraction. But it’s the actions that follow that will explain why you aren’t getting the responses you expect.
Well, that’s because recruiters don’t simply respond to InMail’s without several actions taking place first.
And for a high-performing recruiter to give you the time of day, your information online needs to reflect how outstanding you are to work for and what you offer as a career before any conversation happens.
The video below demonstrates the reality of what a recruiter does when they receive an InMail.
That’s why the strategy-branding-attraction model will give you most success. 100% of my Masterclass clients that I work with have seen an uplift to candidate attraction and response to InMail’s once their branding was appealing to recruiters. Small tweaks can make all the difference.
If your response rate is far lower than you anticipated, I can help with that.
