Even though Facebook may be considered the biggest social network site in the world right now, LinkedIn has been around longer. The “professional social network website” has around 310 million monthly active users, and if you’re wanting to network and create new business connections, there’s a good chance you’re one of the 310 million.
There are a vast number of people you should follow on LinkedIn in order to expand your business and professional network. Today, we’re taking a look at three of the most important recruiters on LinkedIn that you NEED to go follow right this instant.

About Me: “I find great people and place them in great careers. Once we have a conversation, I find out the person behind the resume. We find together their values, goals, and next career move. Even if we don’t, we keep the conversation going to one day get them there.
I’m a metric-driven and intuitive recruiter who is passionate about growing teams and leaders. From start-ups to mid-market companies, I’ve grown my skills from sales into full-cycle recruiting, sourcing, analytics, and development. My delight in recruiting, so far, has been matching top-performing and rising professionals with the right career move in mortgage, sales, management, and development.”
Destiny Brandt is a spitfire of the staffing and recruiting world. She focuses her incredible talent on diversity and inclusion recruiting and says, “80% of the candidates we have placed in 2020/2021 were women and those of diverse being, thought and life experiences.”
Brandt says that her passion for helping people – especially women – comes from growing up poor and often having to live in a car behind a Walmart parking lot. “Sales changed my life,” she says, and she now wants to help others make that change as well.
She spends her time on LinkedIn fighting for things like pay equality and taking no guff from those who try to talk down to her in the comments of her posts. She is strong and focused, and wants to use her talent and expertise to place others in their dream jobs. If you’re looking for a recruiter who will have your best interests at heart, and use every trick in her exceptionally large book to get you what you deserve, Destiny Brandt is the recruiter for you.
