LinkedIn Talent Insights

Maybe you want high-skilled talent now and are ready to conduct a national search for the right person to fill your position. GLI has an exclusive partnership with LinkedIn, to develop customized campaigns to help you hire that hard-to-find talent. We analyze available talent across the U.S., identifying geographical areas where the supply of that talent outpaces demand, where salaries and/or cost of living are comparable or beneficial to Greater Louisville, and curate a list of potential candidates who fit those parameters. Once you have that list, we can help you sell relocation to the region with a variety of resources from Live in Lou. Email Christine Tarquinio to learn more.
