LinkedIn built a Job Portal specifically designed for Students and Recent Graduates providing easy access to entry-level jobs and internships at some of the best companies in the world.
"To support students and recent graduates, we are working closely with our customers to add high-quality entry-level jobs and internships to Linkedin that you'll find through the Jobs Portal. And given the growing importance of public service jobs in today's world, we're also reaching out to non-profit organizations and government agencies to include them in our program," stated Christina Allen.
While anyone can search and view job listings on the public Student Job Portal, Linkedin members with a completed profile and connections have a much richer job search experience:
- "We recommend jobs: Based on your education and interests, we'll recommend jobs specifically targeted to you -- right on your home page or with optional email alerts.
- Put your network to work: Each connection you make expands your network, adding people who can provide insights into opportunities, or who can even help you land a job. Connect to fellow students and see where they've found jobs, reach out to alumni whose companies are hiring, and leverage the networks of your parents, family friends or mentors.
- You can research companies: Linkedin Company Pages provide rich insights to help you explore where you want to work. Learn who companies hire, what products and services they sell, what professionals are saying about them, and who you know who works there.
- Companies find you: At the end of the day, it's also a great opportunity to be found by leading companies. Companies continually comb LinkedIn's member profiles for the best candidates. The more complete your profile, the better your chances of being found," said Allen.
