I’ve complied a list of the top 25 most connected recruiters on LinkedIn.
To generate this list, I searched LinkedIn for anyone in the world who had one of the following terms in their current title: recruiter OR recruiting OR recruitment OR sourcer OR sourcing OR talent, and I sorted the results by connections. It looks as if you will need at least 20,000 1st degree/direct connections to even crack the top 10!
If you click on each result, you will be taken to their public profile. You might want to connect with them if you haven’t already.
Click here for the full search results on LinkedIn – there are at least 301,384 of them.
If you happen to add “human resources” OR HR to the current title search string, the top 25 results don’t change much, with the exception of the top 4 (2 new results show up there). Also, the total results climb to over 820,000.
