LinkedIn announces Top 40 social recruiters

LinkedIn has released the list of recruiters in India who have been ahead of the curve when it comes to recruiting smartly. From helping professionals discover and explore their dream jobs to fueling business growth, these recruiters continue to reimagine possibilities. This year, LinkedIn celebrates the spirit “possibilities” with recruiters who make dreams possible and connect the dots in the world of networking. 

“The job market today has transformed into a candidate’s marketplace wherein candidates choose their employers, as opposed to recruiters choosing them. Social platforms have played a significant role in bringing about this transformation by giving candidates the luxury of accessing information about companies, their culture and opportunities at their fingertips. Our data reconfirms this shift by showing that 32% Indian professionals land a new job through social professional networks. Understanding this shift, organizations are restructuring their recruiting teams to work on building relationships with potential candidates and engage with them on relevant platforms. This move is creating an ecosystem where recruiters, organizations and job seekers interact for individual, professional, and business growth,” said Irfan Abdulla, Director, Talent Solutions, LinkedIn India
