Background & Experience

Jennifer Scott is Crenshaw’s Social Media and LinkedIn Expert, advising clients on strategies for leveraging social media to advance their job search campaigns and better manage their careers. As an executive recruiter and talent acquisition strategist with 20+ years of experience, Jennifer has a deep understanding of how candidate attraction, selection, and retention influence the talent lifecycle, and she consults with corporations on talent planning and selection based on competencies and cultural fit.

Jennifer was an early adopter of social media and its implications for job search, and she has been using LinkedIn virtually since its inception. She reverse-engineers the recruiting process and coaches Crenshaw clients on strategies for using LinkedIn and other social media tools to build and engage their networks, increase their online visibility, and articulate their unique value proposition to employers. She works one-on-one with clients to create a search optimized LinkedIn narrative that captures their unique professional “sound bites.” She pulls back the curtain to shed light on how recruiters use LinkedIn for search and shares tips and hacks for sourcing and parsing information that can help job seekers expedite a path to a hiring manager or other decision maker. As LinkedIn and other social media platforms continue to change and evolve at a lightning pace, Jennifer stays on top of navigation changes and enhancements to make sure Crenshaw clients are well-informed and utilizing the most up-to-date methodologies for enhancing their online presence and search.
