Morton Jobs Listings: Now with LinkedIn!Written on September 30, 2011
LinkedIn has always been a major resource for networking and developing connections, and the Virginia/DC/Baltimore IT community boasts a very strong presence on the social network. Morton Consulting’s presence on LinkedIn comes via our president Mark Morton’s profile – which everyone should connect to!
We’re very excited to have a new way to bring some of that LinkedIn network more direct interaction with Morton Consulting – specifically our Morton Job Listings. The new features is the Apply with LinkedIn button; a new feature from LinkedIn, created with companies like Morton in mind.
On every job listing we put on the website, you’ll find a new button at the bottom of the post – the Apply with LinkedIn button. This button will connect you to LinkedIn and will ask for you to log in. You can then confirm a summarized version of your LinkedIn profile, which will be sent along to our recruiters along with your traditional resume.
This will allow us to easily see any relevant LinkedIn info we might not otherwise be connected to, and will allow us to get to know each consultant candidate better in order to make better placements. It also allows us another avenue of communication with that candidate – useful for both immediate placement and as a way to reach out again in the future.
Here’s a picture of Mark’s summarized profile, so you can see an example of what they look like:
So if you’re eyeing one of our job posts, don’t forget to Apply with LinkedIn as well!
