LinkedIn Jobs has updated their Job Search to help job-seekers make their search with more efficiency than ever before. With a better search experience accompanied by remote jobs search and an updated LinkedIn Salary search, LinkedIn Jobs hopes to help job-seekers and professionals find the right job for them. Through their research on ‘career sleepwalking,’ they have found that professionals nowadays opt to change jobs quite often and make career pivots in search of greater work flexibility. They also found the basis of their LinkedIn Jobs updates in a recent Gallup survey which stated that 43% of US professionals worked remotely in 2017.
In the recent times, the get-up of LinkedIn Jobs is apparently quite different. The new search experience provides you with job details, allows you to save your interests, and even gives you information like the company size, the number of applicants, those people in your network who may be able to assist you – which are right at the top of the page. These features can help you find the right decision-making context and ultimately the right job for you.
The updated LinkedIn Jobs finds remote jobs with ease because the majority of job-seekers value flexible schedules and work-life balance and therefore remote jobs. In the search page, the user can set their location as ‘remote jobs’ so that only those jobs will be displayed that has indicated fully remote arrangement in their job poster. Alternatively, the job seeker can state in their Career Preferences that they are open to working remotely which will help interested recruiters to reach out to them.
In LinkedIn Salary search, one can easily search for more insights by searching not only for job titles but also company so that the salary of various job titles at the company can be understood. Moreover, following companies on LinkedIn and turning on job alerts can now notify the job seeker of new job posts and apply as soon as they can.
LinkedIn wishes to ascertain those job seekers have the right tools for finding the right job at their disposal.
