Not only used as a means of business and social networking, LinkedIn has recently launched a one-click “Apply With LinkedIn” button that employers can add to job postings on the web. After clicking the button, applicants will be able to customize their profile to correspond to the position that they are applying for.
Suitable to employer and applicant needs, the new widget helps keep the application process organized and professional without the use of numerous email attachments and separate resumes. This newly emerged online process could allow users to avoid the common applicant-employer mistake of submitting documents in the wrong format.
As the leading professional networking site, LinkedIn’s new “Apply” web plug-in will positively influence the application process in the future.
