Want to get even more out of LinkedIn? Whether you're looking to find more connections, get on the inside track to getting hired, boost your sales, or pick up top-quality talent for your company, there's a service for you. These are referred to collectively as "LinkedIn Premium."
LinkedIn Premium is a paid subscription to LinkedIn. It has four different services that you can choose from, including "Job Seeker" (helps apply for jobs), "Sales Navigator" (helps find people to sell services to), "Recruiter Lite" (helps hire), and "Business Plus" (helps grow your professional network).
The cost of LinkedIn Premium depends on which sub-service of LinkedIn Plus you choose to subscribe to. The "Job Seeker" package costs $31 per month, the "Sales Navigator" package costs $70 per month, the "Recruiter Lite" package costs $100 per month, and the "Business Plus" package costs $50 per month.
One thing to note, however, is that (with the exception of "Job Seeker") these are monthly rates adjusted for annual subscriptions. If you pay by month, "Business Plus" costs $61 per month, "Sales Navigator" costs $90 per month, and "Recruiter Lite" costs $120 per month.
Also note that no matter which premium package you choose, if that is the first time that you've subscribed to LinkedIn Premium, you will not have to pay for the first month that you use it.
