Why LinkedIn?

For starters, there are more than 740 million active members on the platform and that number is growing every day. It’s the solution we use at Komando HQ to find, connect with and hire the right talent. Getting job postings to reach the right people can be difficult. LinkedIn’s easy-to-use tools help you narrow down the field. You can screen for qualified applicants by adding required questions. It works, too. About 80% of jobs with screening questions get a qualified applicant within a day.
