4 New LinkedIn Features for Job Seekers


Followings its last major update—the redesign of profile pages—LinkedIn announced another makeover, this time to its job search feature.

"We want to help you find your dream job and the new LinkedIn Jobs experience has been completely redesigned to connect you with the right career opportunities and tools to help you take advantage of those opportunities," says Vaibhav Goel, associate product manager at LinkedIn.
Beyond its new look, LinkedIn Jobs now includes a handful of new features for both Premium subscribers and traditional account holders. The new design is rolling out to all users over the next few weeks. Here's a look at what's new.

1. Jobs You May Be Interested In

On the new landing page for LinkedIn Jobs is a section called "Jobs you may be interested in," which lists open positions it thinks might be a good fit for you based on your experience, current location and information you have listed on your profile.
