LinkedIn has launched its first LinkedIn Students App that is custom-built to assist students and new graduates in finding interesting jobs that they are qualified for based on their degrees, their skills and their experience.
The all-new app, for iOS and Android users, can help college students home in on the careers and jobs that appeal to their interests and skills. The LinkedIn Students app was created using insights from those gleaned from the site’s 400 million business members who are posting their own resumes, job skills, experience and more. The app was announced in an April 18 post on the LinkedIn Blog.
The previous job search mobile apps allow users to do quick job searches when they know the specific fields and categories of jobs they are looking for, while the student app allows users to enter their school name, major and year of graduation to get custom suggestions of jobs that they might be qualified to apply for.
This new app is for students looking for their first job out of college, and it’s much more an exploratory app.
