Now you can apply for your next job from your mobile phone.
LinkedIn is making it easier than ever to apply for jobs on its site using your Android or iOS devices with the introduction of several new features to its mobile app on Monday.
“Over 30% of members who view jobs on LinkedIn come from mobile,” said Vaibhav Goel, associate product manager at LinkedIn.
Last month, the company launched the “Jobs you might be interested in” section on mobile as a way for job seekers to search potential gigs while away from their computers. The feature proved very successful for LinkedIn, with many users checking out jobs on mobile that had never before used the functionality on the company’s website.
Monday’s update adds an Apply button and a Save Job button to each listing. After tapping Apply, the app offers the option to edit your LinkedIn profile and update your contact information.
The ability to apply for jobs on mobile will begin rolling out globally to English-speaking LinkedIn members who download the latest version of the app.
