LinkedIn Job Search Review
LinkedIn is a popular job search and professional social website that allows you to network, find open positions, and talk to other professionals. It’s developed a companion app which has much of the same functionality as the website. The app doesn’t have much new and exciting, but it does replicate the website’s features with regularity and usability.
Pros and Cons of LinkedIn
There are some downsides to LinkedIn, as well as some great features.
- Easy job application: LinkedIn hosts jobs right on its website, and allows you to connect with employers looking for people like you. It’s easy to apply for jobs right from your phone.
- Great profile features: You can edit your profile right from the mobile app, which is very convenience, and you’re also able to update your resume and other important features quickly and easily.
- Too much promotional material: LinkedIn is a little in your face about its ads and its connections. This can be very vexing after a while.
- Settings hard to find: The app has made its searching and layout much more intuitive, but settings remain difficult to locate quickly, which is annoying when you want to quickly change something.
