LinkedIn introduces new job search options to help identify relevant jobs

LinkedIn has recently unveiled a set of tools aimed at assisting individuals in discovering job opportunities that are pertinent to their interests and qualifications. The company made this announcement on Wednesday. Introducing the new “Job Collections” feature, which opens up a world of possibilities for users to explore a wide range of industry-specific jobs and companies they may not have previously considered. In addition, the platform is introducing a new “Preferences” page that simplifies the process of selecting and managing your preferences.

In a recent blog post, LinkedIn highlighted the significant increase in job applications per person per job, indicating a rise in competition. The platform’s latest addition, the Job Collections feature, has been designed to enhance the user experience by simplifying the process of finding suitable opportunities. In order to begin using Job Collections, one must navigate to the Jobs section on LinkedIn. Next, you need to locate the section titled “Explore with Job Collections.” Next, you have the option to click on any of the collections that match your interests. As an alternative, one can explore job opportunities that provide the option to work remotely or offer generous parental leave policies.

Additionally, there are industry-specific collections available, including food & beverage, healthcare, media, pro sports, and more. If you have experience in large companies but are seeking a change, exploring job opportunities at startups and small businesses could be a worthwhile option.

Regarding the updated preferences page, LinkedIn has introduced a centralized location for users to manage their preferences. This will help optimize the chances of finding the perfect job match. The new preferences page is conveniently accessible at the top of the Jobs tab on mobile and on the left rail on desktop. After setting your preferences, LinkedIn will display them in green on each job details page, allowing you to easily assess if they match your ideals.

You have the option to customize your preferences, such as choosing the type of employment (full-time, part-time, contract, etc.) and the location type (remote, hybrid, or on-site). In addition, it is possible to establish a minimum pay preference if you reside in the United States. LinkedIn has future plans to incorporate additional preferences into the page.

LinkedIn is rolling out a new feature called the “I’m Interested” button. This button lets you discreetly show your interest in working for a company, even if you haven’t applied for a specific position. It is possible to do so even if there are no available positions at the company. Once you’ve expressed your interest, recruiters at the company might peruse your profile while searching for potential candidates. LinkedIn suggests demonstrating your enthusiasm for your preferred companies.

Today’s announcements coincide with LinkedIn’s introduction of an innovative AI-powered LinkedIn Premium experience. This feature aims to assist individuals in efficiently evaluating whether a job opening aligns with their needs and preferences. The tool can assist users in determining the optimal approach to positioning themselves for any job while simultaneously gaining a deeper understanding of the company and industry.

LinkedIn is introducing these new tools amidst a recent surge of layoffs in the tech industry. Last week, Google made the difficult decision to reduce its workforce, affecting over 1,000 employees in various divisions, including Google Assistant, Pixel, Nest, and Fitbit hardware. Last week, Audible, Discord, and Amazon made significant reductions to their workforce. Audible let go of 5% of its employees, Discord laid off 17% of its staff, and Amazon made the decision to lay off “several hundreds” of employees at Prime Video and MGM Studios.
