Why Candidates Don’t See the Real Salary Range on LinkedIn Job Posts
Recruiters lose candidates - candidates don't apply for matching jobs.
The problem is the auto-calculated salary. Read the post to learn how this affects your job posts efficiency. (I suppose the post can be rewritten for job seekers too).
Your comments are welcome!
Maybe some people at LinkedIn will read it too?
"Irina, your last post is still be talked about"
This was the subject line for an email I just got from LinkedIn.
What kind of software code quality does it reflect? (It's a rhetorical question.)
1) she said that they were designing and coding <some features> so fast that they didn't have the time to tell QA what to test - and were testing themselves. (Anyone who has dealt with software development knows what "quality" that sort of testing results in).
2) answering the question, "has it happened to you that you design user interface and it turns out that the end users are unhappy" - she said "never happened to me".
Sarcasm aside, generally, LinkedIn is struggling with mobile apps and mobile user experience. They are originally "very much" desktop, yet about 1/2 of their pages hits now comes from mobile.
What do you guys think?
"We've figured out which members of the group are most likely to open and be interested in announcements like this, and sent it just to them."
(because LinkedIn ignores it even if it's stated - along with any info on a referral bonus. LinkedIn overwrites my stated salary range by the wrong "estimated" salary provided by payscale.com)
Read to see the details.
So many mixed messages out there, would be nice if LinkedIn would just tell us one way or another.
