Confused over how to find a job you love, and knowing whether you’re a good fit for a role or not is one of the most challenging parts of job hunt. LinkedIn is launching a new feature to help you understand exactly how your skills and experience match with what a potential employer is looking for with ease that process is called “How You Match.”
How You Match can be found on the right-hand side on the LinkedIn Jobs page, where you will see a checklist of factors, like education level, skills, years of experience, and current job title that matches to what a company is looking in a potential new hire based on the criteria shared during posting a job on LinkedIn.
Premium members in addition to this free offer will also see applicant rank within the posting if they’re a match that will show them if they’re in the top percentile of applicants for the job
