LinkedIn has this week launched a new application in the form of the LinkedIn Students App which is been specifically designed to help would-be graduates find their perfect job.
Apparently 86% of students choose to go to college to get better jobs, but 44% of graduates are underemployed, LinkedIn is hoping to change this and help students move from college to career.
LinkedIn explains more about their newly launched Students App which is now available on both iOS and Android throughout the US. LinkedIn has not announced as yet whether the application will be available in other world markets in the near future, but as soon as any more news as announced we will keep you up-to-date as always.
Today, LinkedIn unveils the first-of-its-kind LinkedIn Students app, tailored specifically for soon-to-be college graduates looking to answer these very questions. Using insights from LinkedIn’s database of over 400 million professionals, the brand new app helps you discover jobs that are a best fit for graduates with your major, companies that tend to hire from your school and the careers paths of recent alumni with similar degrees.
Think of it as your personal job exploration guide, providing tailored jobs related recommendations based on real data from the career paths of hundreds of millions of successful professionals. You can use these insights to discover and explore career opportunities you hadn’t considered or even known were possible!
You can chip away at your job search checklist in any of your in-between moments – walking between classes, waiting in line at the coffee shop or taking a study break. What initially felt like an insurmountable undertaking will morph into a manageable daily to-do list and, before you know it, you’ll no longer be asking “How do I find a job that’s a fit for me?,” but “Which of these jobs is the best fit for me?”
