It’s true, LinkedIn has become a leader in the job search space with their Talent Solutions offerings pulling in 275.9 million dollars in Q1 this year. To further their foothold, LinkedIn has launched a new stand-alone job app for the iPhone dubbed LinkedIn Job Search.
While it may seem odd to apply for jobs via an app, the implementation is quite intuitive and easy-to-use. Users can search by job title, keyword or location then filter by proximity, most recent and most relevant. Still didn’t find what you were searching for? Additional search filters like job function, industry and seniority exist to help users find the perfect gig.
Once that gig has been found, users can quickly apply with the tap of a finger using their current LinkedIn profile – no cover letters and envelopes required.
Another nice feature of LinkedIn Job Search is that users can get real-time notifications that include:
- The ability to see who has viewed your application
- New job postings that match saved searches
Overall, this is a very handy job search tool that will only further LinkedIn as a major player in the job search space. The ease of use, advanced search features and simplicity to apply should help drive even more market-share towards LinkedIn. To download it for yourself head on over to iTunes to download at no-cost.
