The mobile app is designed to help job seekers look for new gigs on the go. Users can search by location, keyword, and job title and filter results based on company. You can also view, save, and apply to jobs within the app, and set up notifications for when new jobs crop up or when job listings are set to expire. And just like on the LinkedIn website, you can see who’s viewed your profile.
The company says that the Android app was built from the ground up specifically for the Android environment, which is why it took LinkedIn so long to launch after its initial iOS release.
Job Search follows the recent release of LinkedIn Connect for Android — an app devoted to the art of networking. But this is just the latest mobile app LinkedIn is pushing. The company already has a recruitment app (Recruiter), a presentation app (SlideShare), and a news app (Pulse) in its arsenal.
Job Search will be available in English speaking countries only, the company says, and is available in the Google Play store today.
