In an attempt to match the increasing demand of job seekers, LinkedIn has decided to highlight five important updates. The “Open-to-work” option allows users to signal to recruiters privately or publicly. The “Skills Match” update helps job seekers understand the skill sets needed for a specific job. The ‘Share Your Resume With All Recruiters’ function facilitates user interaction with talent scouts. The ‘Hiring in Your Network’ process notifies users of potential hires in their network. Finally, the ‘I’m Interested’ button enables users to communicate their interest directly to the hiring company through their LinkedIn page, facilitating consideration for the job available in the future. LinkedIn’s new highlighted features help appease a large chunk of its users by aiding them to find fitting job matches, assess skills and find referrals.
