In an attempt to capitalize the mounting mobile traffic, LinkedIn Corporation has launched the iPhone application named "LinkedIn Job Search".
This app is purposely designed for job hunting. Users can freely download this app from the App Store. This app is now live in the United States and soon will be expected to reach other regions. In April, LinkedIn has revealed that it is gaining huge rise in mobile traffic and they are expecting to reach 50 percent of their traffic via smart phone by the end of this year.
In their official blog, LinkedIn mentioned that their objective is to make the job search process easier and help users to be more prudent. iPhone app makers of LinkedIn also ensure that the job search done through this iPhone App will be kept private and they will not share any data on their network. According to iPhone application developers, this app will allow users to search and apply for jobs on LinkedIn in a more efficient way. Like as LinkedIn web, this app offers streamlined end-to-end experiences to users and allows customized search options with a personalized approach. Users can filter jobs by location, company, industry, or seniority level via advance search options. This app will also advise job options based on saved searches, jobs viewed by users, and LinkedIn profile of the users.
Last year in October, the company first time revealed that their 38 percent of visitors come through smartphones. The company then spent a good deal of time on the matter, refurbished its mobile and web apps, and added some nifty features too. The company had also announced the LinkedIn app in India for Nokia Asha budget devices. Now the launch of "LinkedIn Job Search" is a huge shift towards apps paradigm. This shift will apparently allow LinkedIn to capitalize the increasing traffic over smartphones and will also explore new avenues for iPhone App developers.
