I like the "Easy Apply", it doesn't need to go to the company's website to apply for it. It's easy to apply for openings by LinkedIn Profile instead of uploading resume. Also, in the website - not in the app - I can see if I have any connections that works for that company to request he/she to introduce me to the company.
I can see if the companies that I follow in LinkedIn has been posted any new job positions.
It doesn't use the skills from your profile, it uses just keywords. For my major that is architecture, it suggest me computer architect every day, although it's totally different industry. Or with key word of "designer", it offers me web designer, UX designer, floral designer and similar ones that are not relevant to my educational background and work experience.
Still, there are lots of companies that have open positions but they don't post it online.
I always recommend it to my sister, cousins, and friends to use LinkedIn Job search parallel to other job-boards and apps. It's important that you customize your preferences, and set different job alert with different keywords, because the LinkedIn job search is more about keywords/skills than job title and your industry.
Instead of updating your title in LinkedIn to "actively looking for a job in ...", it's better to turn on the feature of "Open Candidates" in your LinkedIn profile, to connect with your dream job by privately signaling to recruiters that you’re open to new job opportunities.
You can customize the following preferences:
Shared career interests with recruiters
How actively are you looking for a job
How soon would you like to move to a new job
Job titles you are considering
Types of jobs you are open to
Industries you're considering
The size of the company you'd like to work for
I got job via LinkedIn. In fact, the HR of my current company used LinkedIn Job Search and he found me and contacted me in LinkedIn. The best part was because I could privately signal to Recruiters that I'm open to new job opportunities.
