Weekly Roundup: A Glimpse of Top Companies, Meet Your Job Match and Discover the latest in InMail Analytics

May 19, 2017

Time for your weekly dose of LinkedIn’s new updates and features.

Top of the charts. Do you know which companies are considered the most attractive in the world? According to the billions of actions taken by LinkedIn’s 500+ million members, Alphabet, Amazon, Facebook and Salesforce top the list. LinkedIn just announced this year’s Top Companies list, showcasing the top companies across markets around the globe that are the most sought-after by professionals. Could your dream employer be on this list? Check out the details here.

It’s a match! Speaking of dream employers, we’re rolling out top job matches for you right from our mobile LinkedIn app. For recruiters this increases the visibility of jobs, and for you this means, a daily list of personally curated jobs matches right to your Jobs tab on the LinkedIn mobile app. Within the “jobs icon” the recommendations will be aligned to personal preferences, salary highlights, skills, and location.

To make your job search even easier, within the jobs tab we’ll also show you connections you know at the company so you can easily start a conversation. For example, when looking at a job posting at a company you’re interested in we’ll show you which of your connections work there, or who can introduce you to someone at the company. Nearly 50% of LinkedIn members have found a job through a mutual connection, so find your way in.
