Josef Kadlec belongs among the first LinkedIn recruiters in Europe. His career path is logical but unexpected. He studied Software Engineering at the Faculty of Nuclear Sciences and Physical Engineering in Prague, and also earned his masters degree in Information Management. Right after his university studies he started to work for an international IT corporation as a software engineer.
That was also the moment of realization, his 'aha moment'. Why was such a corporation not able to hire to full capacity even though they had contracts with tens of staffing agencies? Why was he able to find those people and recruit them in a similar way, like he was hired by a regular personnel agency? He thought that he was capable, so he accepted the challenge and founded his own personnel agency, Jobs Consulting.
His analytical approach was completely different to all of the other personnel agencies, and was a great success. What's more, the competitive recruitment agencies adopted his progressive procedures to support their own success. His years of experience with direct recruitment have promoted him to the role of a leading world expert on LinkedIn recruitment.
His current life avenue is helping other recruiters and companies take advantage of LinkedIn and other social marketing tools. For this purpose, he established a LinkedIn® recruitment academy, LINREA.com (now belongs to the Recruitment Academy established by the recruitment agency GoodCall which was founded by Josef after publishing his book). It is important to mention that he has never worked for the LinkedIn Corporation and he is not affiliated with them in any manner. Josef is also an investor and advisor at Datacruit.com.
