Linkedin Job Search App

The Job Search App (available on iOS and Android) helps students get a head start on their job search. When students apply within the first 3 days a job is posted on LinkedIn, they increase their chances of landing an interview. With the Job Search App, students can create their first LinkedIn profile directly in the app, search for jobs, set up job alerts to stay in the know, and be one of the first to apply to the jobs they want.
