LinkedIn helping those looking for a job on the go

The world of searching for work is a go-go world. And now seekers of employment can work on it on the go-go, too.

LinkedIn has introduced a new job search app for iPhone, which offers its users the ability to filter position openings sorted by categories such as title, location, and industry. The app can also seek job opening info based on a LinkedIn member’s prior employment searches. More than 40 percent of users are already using mobile to look at jobs on LinkedIn, company execs say.

The app is currently available only in the U.S. for iOS. An Android version will be coming later this year, LinkedIn said. No defined time frame for other platforms (such as Windows or BlackBerry) has been announced.

LinkedIn’s main site currently provides filtering search tools and ways to save a user’s searches and jobs. The new app provides these tools, too, but will also notify users of jobs in which they might be interested.

Four tabs at the bottom: search, discover, track, and notifications help job seekers use the app. The discover tab surfaces jobs that are popular among those who have a profile similar to the user’s. Track lets people see the jobs they’ve viewed or saved, as well as postings for which they’ve already sent an application.

LinkedIn is hoping its new job app — as well as its recent foray into content marketing on the site — will boost the company’s bottom line.

Hopefully, the new directions at LinkedIn will improve job seekers’ bottom lines, too.
