How to improve your job search with LinkedIn's mobile app

Matt Kapko | July 8, 2014
Let's face it. Staring at a big screen on your lap or desk all day doesn't always make for the most conducive environment for job seeking. Amid the doldrums of unemployment, there's only so many hours to waste before the urge to get outdoors to soak up all that newfound freedom takes hold.

Track allows users to see all of the jobs they've viewed, saved or applied for in a single menu. Finally, much like the desktop version of LinkedIn, the notifications tab will alert users to any saved jobs that are about to expire, when a recruiter has viewed your application or when new jobs are posted that meet your criteria.

"Landing your dream job can feel like a full-time job. So we wanted to make it easier to find, research and apply for your next opportunity by maximizing your in between' moments," LinkedIn's Ayele writes. "The next time you're in a line for coffee or stuck waiting for a delayed flight, why not jumpstart your job search from your phone."

LinkedIn tells CIO.com it plans to expand the new Job Search app to more countries and languages in future releases.
