LinkedIn wants to make applying for a job as simple as possible and now you can do it from your phone. The company has updated its app adding a new search feature that lets you search for potential jobs and then apply without a resume directly from your account.
You can search based on job title, keyword or company. LinkedIn will also recommend jobs for you based on your skills and employment history. Once you find your desired job listing, you can use the app to app for the job directly from LinkedIn. You don’t need a resume, you can simply use your LinkedIn profile to represent your work experience and to show off your skill set.
The business social network is also pushing an upgrade called a “Job Seeker Premium Account” that will give you paid placement at the top of a recruiter’s inbox. It costs $29.95 a month for a monthly membership, or if you commit to a year’s membership it is $24.95.
