LinkedIn is making it easier to find the perfect job, by showing you how your experience and skills match up with what the employers are looking for. Together with the new 1-click apply feature, LinkedIn proves once again how it’s the most efficient way to find your next gig.
LinkedIn has always strived to make job hunting easier. Today, it is making it even more efficient, by letting you know right from the start if your experience is a good match for what an employer is looking for.
“How you match” will now be shown on every job posting on LinkedIn. You will find it on the right-hand side of the job posting. The new section will show a checklist of how factors like your education level, skills, experience, and current job title, match with what the employer is looking for. The feature is available to all users, but Premium users will also see where they rank among other applicants.
If you are a match, it is now easier and quicker than ever to apply. Some jobs now have a 1-click apply button that works on both mobile and desktop. Note that you will need to have your basic information (phone number, email, and resume) saved on the platform to use the new feature.
