Apply For Jobs Quickly & Easily Using The LinkedIn App

LinkedIn has been quite busy these past few months. In March they gave their search a face lift. How did you guys enjoy the new search updates? Today they just made it 100 times easier to apply for jobs.

Vaibhav Goel, the Associate Product Manager of LinkedIn, said the following:

We have heard from many of you that you want the ability to apply directly from your mobile device but that managing and editing resumes on a small screen can be challenging.

How does it work?

Notes from the slides:

  1. Download the LinkedIn mobile app
  2. Select a job you want to apply for
  3. Make sure your profile is up to date
  4. Review your information & select ‘Submit’ to send in your resume

If I had to apply for another job, then I would definitely use this, as it’s fast and easy to do. Do you think employers will embrace this new way of resume submission?

    Using LinkedIn to apply for jobs? I’m in two minds about whether or not this will be successful… On one hand, it’s like submitting a virtual CV (so long as your profile is up to date) and can give potential employers a good idea of what your business attitude is like. On the other hand, it will need to be embraced, and personally I think that applying for jobs through a social networking site can seem a bit stupid… I definitely wouldn’t recommend Facebook or Twitter trying this! Although I guess that’s just because of the main differences between avid Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn users.

  • It’s really easy to submit your application via linkedin. Another feature I found is that they show the total amount of people applied for the job which gives you an idea about the competition. By the way, if you applied the job, does other people in your connection see it or see the update?
