What do you like best?

LinkedIn is different than other social networking sites in that it's designed solely for the purpose of professional networking. It is beneficial for job search and I also got other skills like resume building techniques. There are many features but the feature like applying directly through Linkedin is the best one, and also connection network is a very useful feature for the professionals. I like this app very much. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

It is a professional website, there will be many improvements needed with the passage of time, but I think there is no things in it, which I dislike at this time. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

All the different filters, recently added a Remote working option possibly due to the pandemic which helps a lot, if the application is sent through LinkedIn (not the company site) then it usually lets you know when your application has been viewed which is nice, you can keep track of the jobs you've applied to, provides job recommendations based on what you've been applying to and what filters you've been using, sometimes you can see who in the company posted the job so you can potentially reach out to express your interest or at least know who to address your cover letter to which can still give you a competitive advantage in the application process Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Does get buggy at times, occasionally you will come across hundreds of job posts for the same company which are clearly spam of some sort, sometimes there are also illegitimate posts that lead to strange sites that are clearly spammy as well, but overall it's good quality, you can't rescend an application, there could be more variety in the jobs that they recommend for you Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

I recommend using LinkedIn JOb Search mainly because it provided the most options and insights than other job search sights. You can learn a lot about the company like it's size, culture, recent news, who posted the job, estimated salary and more. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

making connections, finding work, learning about new companies and job titles, salary and benefit insights, shows how many applicants there are which helps me decide if it's worth applying to because if there's well over a hundred that's too many really, learning more about the company and the size, also shows their location so you can figure out our commute if needed, Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

I like the filters that can be applied when looking for a job. Location, Salary, Job function, Job Type (remote, offie etc), and Job Title can all be searched for. I especially like the fact I can add a Company filter. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

The jobs served up to my feed tend to be from all over the country, and sometime even roles abroad. I think it would be better if only roles in my Job search filters were served to my feed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I find access to agencies really useful. I get messaged often from agents about specific roles and having tehm in my contacts helps with my job search. I like the feature which allows agencies to see that I am looking for work, but it doesnt show that I'm looking for work on my profile unless I allow it. I quite like the layout of the Job search, its good to have a list of roles on the left and then a window on the right showing the selected job, it makes trawling through them a lot more efficient.

What do you like best?

The ease of use is amazing! I can easily search and find jobs in multiple categories by simply choosing related keywords. Igor example of how easy it is to use: It takes less than a minute and only a few clicks of a button and I can have a very customized, filtered list of jobs in my search area. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

I really don’t have a dislike with the job search itself; however, the added filters and further detailed information requires a premium subscription thru LinkedIn. By adding this service, it can narrow down jobs for which your most qualified for, as compared to other applicants. This is a great option, so you can create a shortlist of jobs you like, yet filtering then just as recruiters do for job applicants. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Having an optimized LinkedIn profile will greatly improve your competitiveness during job search. I say this because recruiters and hiring managers review LinkedIn profiles of job applicants, prior to scheduling interviews, A LinkedIn profile optimization can range from very cheap to very expensive, so so find someone within your budget and get a review of you LinkedIn profile. I have used DigiMarks2020 to further enable a professional appearance for others to review my qualifications.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

The issue of adequately filtering jobs to my search criteria. This solved the problem that I encounter on most other job sites. The benefit is that I can run customized searches and be very picky on the job details that I’m looking for.

What do you like best?

LinkedIn Job Search is the ultimate job search app. I often look for work overseas in my field and the filters this app has, allows me to narrow down to the country and state/ province of my preference. This feature prevents me from wasting time going through multiple job listings online that takes more time to read and assimilate. The requirements and qualifications are clearly listed. Also, with the 'easy apply' feature you can just with the click of a button send your application to the company with ease. Job hunting is not an activity that I like to do and I doubt anyone on the planet like that activity, but LinkedIn JS makes that less stressful. Job hunting is a numbers game and with this app you can apply to many job offerings over a very short period of time. I have received multiple calls and emails as a result of this app. I highly recommend its use. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Only rarely you are diverted to a company's website instead of the easy apply feature, which then requires you to create an account before applying. But I guess that is a requirement of the employer. Apart from this, LinkedIn JS is an awesome app. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Everyone searching for work right now needs this app. It is very easy to use and makes the job search process less troublesome. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Reduced time and energy during the job application process. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you like best?

LinkedIn is undoubtedly the social network for job-seeking professionals. It just strikes the perfect balance between finding something fast and finding something great. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

Just sending your resume blindly with the automated job search function will not give you the desired results. You will have to spend time building a brilliant profile that clearly highlights your skills, qualifications and abilities. Not each message you receive once on this social platform goes to be helpful. Not solely should you filter all of this spam, that takes time, however you’ve additionally ought to confirm that your own valuable experience isn’t being deleted by others as a result of it being seen as spam in addition. Not every business professional is active on LinkedIn. It will take time for connections to create and conversations to get started. You’ll spend a lot of your initial time with introductions as you work on building connections. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

Recommendations to others considering the product:

Build your network before you need it and enhance your knowledge on different technologies to fulfill your dreams. Best way to reach out to everyone professional with minimal effort.

What do you like best?

I really like that linkedin job search breaks the site down into saved jobs, applied jobs, salary, interview prep, resume builder, and has a search bar in which you can browse via city, state, or zip code along with title, skill, or company. Moreover it will pull up job matches for your previous searches automatically which is extremely helpful. I also like the idea of the "based on your profile" feature but it is not always accurate. For those whom are business owners it is also beneficial that you are given the option to post a job as well. I also love that there are no advertisements or other things of the sort as compared to sites like monster or indeed. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What do you dislike?

As i mentioned before, the "based on your profile" feature needs work. It does not always accurately pull up relevant jobs or locations for theses jobs based on my current residence. This tool needs to be significantly improved for anyone to make good use of it. Moreover, i dont like that linkedin often brings you to an external site when clicking on some of the job postings. I would rather have it open on the linkedin site and then give me the option to leave the page to look at the company website. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.

What problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Linkedin Job search has been beneficial in performing and saving multiple job searches and you can chose the type and frequency of alert when a new job match pops up. It allows you to import your linkedin profile to jobs which certainly beats typing everything out again. Review collected by and hosted on G2.com.
