One advantage to purchasing a premium LinkedIn account is the ability to see more search results when you perform advanced people searches. With the basic (free) LinkedIn account, you are limited to 100 results when you perform a search and the results consist of people in your 1st or 2nd degree network.
Job seekers often want to see more than 100 results; they want to see all attorneys with a particular background who practice in a particular market. However, there’s a free website job seekers can use to see more than 100 results. Instead of upgrading your account, try running your LinkedIn searches on Recruitem. Recruitem searches public LinkedIn profiles on Google so you get more results. Simply enter your search parameters and search! For example, if you are looking for a job in Orlando, FL, you may want to find partners at Orlando firms and perform the search below.
As you can see, there are over 7,000 results, so you aren’t limited to only 100.
