New LinkedIn Job Search Feature

linkedinWell, I am truly amazed how fast Social Media is taking off and changing the recruitment landscape. Last week LinkedIn became more powerful and a whole lot smarter for candidates, job seekers and recruiters with their new web plug-in “Apply with LinkedIn”.

If you are hunting for a job on the web, you can now click the “Apply With LinkedIn” button on the website of the prospective employer to apply for a position using your LinkedIn profile. A screen will then display asking you if you wish to edit any of the fields in your profile and a cover letter can be uploaded.

Once you’ve submitted your application, LinkedIn will even show you all of the people in the member’s professional network that are working for the company (if there is nobody, LinkedIn will offer suggestions and make introductions).

It just goes to show that there’s another important reason to have your LinkedIn profile created in a way that will attract the attention of recruiters and employers. Resumes Australia is currently offering you a free LinkedIn profile (valued at A$495) when you purchase one of our executive resume writing services before 31st August 2011.
