Updates to Jobs Search Make It Even Easier to Find the Right Job on LinkedIn

August 22, 2018

Looking for a new job is a journey that can be full of twists and turns, but there’s a lot you can do to make your search more effective. Through our own research, we’ve found professionals are changing jobs more than ever - especially among younger generations - and they’re often making career pivots or looking for more flexibility.

Today we’re introducing some changes to LinkedIn Jobs to help job-seekers find the job that’s right for them - a new search experience, remote jobs search, and updates to LinkedIn Salary search.  

An Easier Way to Find the Right Job

If you’ve looked for a job on LinkedIn recently, you may have noticed that it looks a bit different. The days of opening multiple tabs and losing your place in your search are gone.

With the new LinkedIn Jobs search experience, you can scroll through jobs details, save the job that interests you, and see all the most important information - like company size, how many applicants there are, and who in your network can help - right at the top of the page, quickly giving you the context you need to decide if a job is the right fit for you.

An Easy Way to Find Remote Jobs

From our own research, we know most of you value flexible schedules and work/life balance, and often this means working remotely. A recent Gallup survey found nearly half (43%) of U.S. professionals spent time working remotely last year, so we wanted to create an experience that made it easier to find employment that does not require you coming into the office.

Now when you’re searching for a job on LinkedIn, you’ll be able to select “remote jobs” as your location, which will return only jobs that the job poster has indicated are fully remote. You can also indicate in your Career Preferences that you’re open to working remotely, signalling to recruiters to reach out to you with these opportunities.

Know More About Your Potential Paycheck

We’ve also introduced an easier way to search for more insights in LinkedIn Salary. Now, when using LinkedIn Salary, you’re able to search by company - not just job title - to understand how different job titles are paid at the company you’re interested in.

With this additional insight, professionals can enter into interviews or conversations with managers more informed.
