LinkedIn has updated its Bahasa Malaysia mobile application [app], which now makes it possible for LinkedIn members to apply directly for jobs in Bahasa Malaysia from their iOS or Android channels, said the professional networking site.

LinkedIn's announcement also said it now has more than one million members in Malaysia, and more than 50 million members in Asia.

In addition, more than 30 percent of members who view jobs on Linked in come from mobile, "so the move is to make it easier for a new generation of members to fully complete their job-seeking experience from their mobile devices."

The app resolves the challenges of managing and editing resumes on a small screen, by allowing users to apply for jobs  using their LinkedIn profile, without a resume attachment, continued the statement.

"This local language app feature will better support the growing number of Bahasa Malaysia language speaking professionals joining LinkedIn in a digital age, where mobility is key," it said, adding that the app also targets the HR and recruitment industry.

According to LinkedIn's Global Recruiting Trends 2013 survey, social professional networks are the second-largest source of quality hires in Southeast Asia. The updated Bahasa Malaysia app allows talent solutions professionals to reach the best talent - on the go.
