Who’s Hiring in Your Network

LinkedIn’s is adding a new Who’s Hiring in Your Network overview. It keeps you updated on the potential career opportunities from your connections.

“Keeping in touch with your network is crucial, and many are increasingly turning to their online communities for help. More than one third of job seeking LinkedIn members in the US said they reached out to someone in their network to discuss their career plans. But it can be challenging to know who’s hiring or where to start,” says LinkedIn.

The new overview has a dedicated space in the Jobs tab to highlight opportunities from peers.

“You’ll also be notified of relevant jobs when people in your first or second degree network are hiring, and you can also see members of the hiring team in job descriptions, making it easy for you to reach out directly and apply early,” adds LinkedIn.
