LinkedIn launches job search app

LinkedIn Job Search aims to give job-hunters a better, more streamlined experience than LinkedIn's (LNKD) core mobile apps. Customizable search options and recommended listings are part of the feature set.

The company claims over 40% of its users "are currently using mobile to look at jobs on LinkedIn." 58% of LinkedIn's Q1 revenue came from its Talent Solutions business.

Job Search joins a broader trend among Internet giants to offer an array of apps optimized for specific services, both to improve the user experience and (hopefully) have more than one icon on a user's homescreen. Facebook has been especially aggressive here.

The app is only available in the U.S. iOS App Store for now. Android and international markets should be supported in time.

    You nailed it.
    Lnkd is nothing but a SPAM and SCAM company.
    Still profitless after 15 years in operation, with a constant
    barrage of paid headlines to pump up the stock so insiders
    can dump.
