As you can see above, the 15% is though considered to be passive, but they also do their own search, through their own personal network. How big is your network on Linkedin? My 1st level network is over 9K, my total network is 23MM+, so you can see if you are one of the 15% with such a large network, you can get a job much faster. GROW your Network!
45% of the total Linkedin membership (300MM+) is 135MM people are open to talk to a recruiter. Are you one of these people?
If you have a well set Linkedin Profile, you can be found easier. Do this little step for your future position. And if you need a little help.
