The levels of seniority on LinkedIn
The level of seniority is usually defined by the years you’ve worked for a company or the skills and experience you have in an industry. This criterion is essential since LinkedIn AI categorizes people based on this feature to suggest them to different recruiters. The levels are:
- Internship (unpaid or underpaid)
- Entry Level (lowest paid of the type, minimum requirements)
- Associate (lowest paid of the type, minimum requirements in most of the industries)
- Mid-Senior or the second level or a senior entry-level or senior associate (more experience, mid requirements, mid-wage)
- Director (management-level roles, high-paid, advanced skills)
- Executive (management-level roles, high-paid, advanced skills)
We just talked about changing the seniority level on a LinkedIn job posting and posting a job in the first place. This is very important feature you can use to attract users with some required talents into a job vacancy you have in your company.
You just need to buy some job postings and post a job. It will remain valid for 30 days, you can edit its information, including seniority, and you will have five free InMails to contact the most suitable candidates. If you are interested in more than five users, you should buy some InMails.
So if you actually have an available position and are looking for some decent candidates, be careful about your desired seniority level.
