Big networks, targeted networks, broad networks. That’s always been the looming question for recruiter using LinkedIn to recruit. But organizing your Linkedin connections has always been the most difficult part about using the social network. I don’t have a huge network. In fact, it’s pretty modest in comparison to some but the quality of my network has suited me extremely well. Now there is a way for recruiters to organize their connections more efficiently from within LinkedIn.

With the recent updates to LinkedIn’s capabilities, recruiters should be able to organize and manage their connections more efficiently and leverage their connections network to uncover prospective talent they once could not.

Linkedin seems to be getting easier to organize and manage as the tool seems to be geared for the recruiting profession. Building a social network is important, but as you get more traction with it and more contacts, organization becomes just as important as size. Make sure you take full advantage of Linkedin and organize your Linkedin connections. If you don’t, you will never extract the full value of your developed professional network.
