That job opportunity piqued your interest, but how is the commute? LinkedIn can now answer that.

The professional network Thursday began adding a See Your Commute module to job listings, with senior product manager Dan Li saying in a blog post that 85 percent of U.S. professionals said they would take pay cuts for shorter commutes.

The new See Your Commute module will allow users to enter their addresses and calculate how long it would take them to reach jobs they are interested in via walking, driving or public transportation.

Mobile users will also be able to save their location information on their devices so that they don’t have to enter it for each new job listing they are considering.

LinkedIn users can also set commute preferences within their Career Interests dashboards.
