Introducing Your Commute on LinkedIn Jobs: Explore Travel Time When Looking for Your Next Job

June 7, 2018

We know commuting is a pain point for many job-seekers, in fact 85% of U.S. professionals say they would take a pay cut for a shorter commute. Today, we’re introducing a feature, “Your Commute”, that can help you understand your potential commute time, whether you’re walking, driving or taking public transportation, before you even apply for the role.

There are a lot of factors that go into understanding if a job is the right fit for you, and taking the time to research can often be a roadblock to finding a new opportunity. Now, on LinkedIn, you can see salary insights, how your skills and experience match with what the role requires, who can refer you to the role, and information about the company and potential team, all without ever leaving the job listing.

  • time

When you visit job listings on LinkedIn from your mobile phone, you’ll start to see a “See Your Commute” module. From here you can enter your address to calculate how long it would take you to get to your new office walking, driving or on public transportation. Soon, you’ll also have the option to save your location information locally on your phone so you don’t have to type it in every time you’re looking at a role.

  • preferences

You can also set your commute preferences within your Career Interests dashboard so we can provide you with more relevant job recommendations that fit your lifestyle.

We’re always looking for ways to help our members make informed decisions about their career, and with all of these insights now directly within a job listing, we’re making it even easier to find the job that’s right for you.
