Episode 239 - LinkedIn Recruiter and Headhunting with Tiina Jarvet
LinkedIn is more than a business-to-business networking site – it’s a powerful tool to take the next step in your career. Companies can use LinkedIn to attract top talent to their vacancies, and job seekers can find significant new roles on the platform. This conversation with LinkedIn recruiter and headhunter Tiina Jarvet gives excellent insight into using LinkedIn to further your career. She also gives advice for companies using the platform to recruit for their open positions.

The LinkedIn Recruiter
Being a LinkedIn Recruiter is fascinating. The LinkedIn Recruiter platform, though pricey at €10,000 per year, gives you so much extra information and insight into potential candidates. Tiina gives us some insight into how she uses LinkedIn Recruiter to help companies find the best candidates for their open positions.
Companies seek out headhunters like Tiina, who specialise in finding candidates on LinkedIn. As a recruiter, Tiina gets to know her candidates deeply, so she presents with confidence to companies – her reputation is on the line, so she would never present someone whom she hasn’t vetted and interviewed herself.
One of the most common gaps Tiina sees from companies is not presenting a clear job title in their job description. Clarity is key in recruiting the best people for a job.
Standing Out to LinkedIn Recruiters
Job seekers can improve their chances of being headhunted on LinkedIn. Completing your LinkedIn profile is the most important step – even if you’re not actively seeking new employment, headhunters like Tiina can come across your profile based on the information it contains.
Being active on LinkedIn, connecting and engaging with your ideal companies and their employees, and engaging with your current company’s LinkedIn posts will also help your profile stand out to recruiters.
Have you been successfully headhunted on LinkedIn? Has your company used a recruiter to fill your vacancies? I’d love to hear about your experiences. Let me know in the comments on the episode page.

Episode 238 LinkedIn and YouTube with Gillian Whitney Live
YouTube and LinkedIn are such complementary platforms. One YouTube video can become so many different types of content, which makes it accessible to people throughout the world. In this episode, I’m speaking to Gillian Whitney, a live stream specialist, about the power and versatility of YouTube videos. We discuss the many benefits of creating videos on YouTube and how they can also benefit your LinkedIn presence.
The Benefits of YouTube Videos
Free and accessible information for your audience. Building an audience and getting business leads Cross-post to other platforms. Populate your LinkedIn profile.
YouTube Videos are Multipurpose
Video content is one of the best forms of content you can make simply because it is so easily repurposed. A YouTube video can become multiple LinkedIn videos, a podcast, a blog post, and several short-form content pieces for other platforms. That’s the beauty of content – you can create something for every type of learning style, so everyone benefits from what you have to say.
The versatility is incredible, and everyone who has something to say should definitely show up on YouTube. Gillian says that everyone should claim their YouTube handle, as well, even if you’re just thinking about creating content. Claim your space!
LinkedIn is Like a Conference
I’ve recently hit one million views on my YouTube channel, which is amazing, and I think I need to start taking my channel seriously! If the amount of people connecting with me on LinkedIn and business enquiries coming through is anything to say, the potential for growth is exponential.
LinkedIn is like a conference. Your personal profile is you showing up at the conference and speaking to people. Your company page is the booth you have at the conference. And YouTube is the videos and proof you display at your booth. The synergy between the two platforms is perfect.

Targeted Linkedin Connections For Business Growth With Fiona Walsh

Episode 237 - How to get booked to speak from LinkedIn with Fiona Walsh
Connect wisely on LinkedIn for powerful business connections.
That’s what my guest, Fiona Walsh, did, and she’s seen a huge increase in business opportunities. After working together, Fiona posted relevant content consistently on LinkedIn, which led to increased engagement, valuable, relevant connections, and paid speaking opportunities. In this episode, she offers advice on securing paid speaking gigs and emphasises the importance of networking and following up both on and off LinkedIn.
About Fiona Walsh
With 25 years in corporate, Fiona Walsh has seen her fair share of bad slides. As an IT Manager/Trainer, she became the primary go-to person for help with anything PowerPoint-related.
Fiona set up Empower Presentations to provide bespoke PowerPoint training to organisations. She loves it when a client gets an ‘aha’ moment as they realise there’s a more innovative way to do something, and it will save them time. She is passionate about teaching people how to create slides that are fit for purpose and engaging.
Fiona also focuses on presenting confidently, including best practices in the boardroom, at a conference, and online, for example, with MS Teams. Fiona is a certified Microsoft Master Trainer and became Director of Education for the Presentation Guild (a global organisation for presentation professionals) in January 2023.
Business Opps from LinkedIn Connections
When Fiona and I first started working together, we focussed on creating a monthly content plan for LinkedIn. This plan takes so much stress and pressure off a business owner who is trying to create consistent content on the platform.
Soon after Fiona started posting consistent and relevant content, she noticed her engagement increase. Her use of relevant hashtags enabled the right people to find her, leading to increased valuable connections, speaking opportunities, and business growth worldwide.
Fiona soon started receiving opportunities for paid speaking events on LinkedIn, which has taken her to a number of conferences. Her advice for landing paid speaking gigs on LinkedIn?
Look for what events are out there
Look at the companies that host those events
Connect with key people at those companies
Take the conversations off LinkedIn
The art of the Follow Up
Fiona has mastered the follow-up conversation, often reaching back out to someone she’s worked with in the past. She also says that she often connects with people who don’t send her a message – in fact, these connection requests often come from her ideal customers. If she feels they may be a good connection after viewing their profile, she’ll send them a message after connecting. This often leads to a business opportunity.
Fiona also shares how she’s made powerful connections on LinkedIn that led to a mutually beneficial referral relationship. Without LinkedIn, she would not have found her referral partner and increased sales.
Finally, Fiona and I discuss the benefits of having a Creator profile on LinkedIn and why it’s so important to post consistently.
How has posting consistently on LinkedIn resulted in more sales, speaking events, or opportunities for you? Let me know in the comments on the episode page.
