LinkedIn Premium Plans: Premium Career vs. Recruiter Lite

Linkedin does not make it easy to compare its plans, that is the gift of Microsoft, just look at their MS office plans 🙂
Trying to compare and understand Career Vs Recruiter Plans? This comparison below should help.
Reminder, we covered Business and Lead Generation / Prospecting Premium plans, in this blog here.
So what is the difference between the two – Premium Career vs. Recruiter Lite.
Premium Career is for people looking for a job and the service allows them to stand out, reach out to hiring managers, find out how you stand when compared to other applicants and get to learn and add new skills to advance your career.
And, Recruiter Lite is an affordable way for the companies to reach out and contact the best talent available.
FYI: LinkedIn offers a much bigger platform for talent search i.e. Recruiter under LinkedIn® Talent Solutions. This will be covered in another blog soon.
