Apply with LinkedIn
LinkedIn, the social network for professionals, has released a new social plugin that allows people to apply directly to a job directly with their account.
It is very simple. The company distributes a job ad and must include a « Apply with LinkedIn » button into it. Then, the applicant just have to click on this button to send the request to the company that can view his profile.
This allows the company to collect applications from people who do not necessarily have a resume ready to send. The company will also have access to the various recommendations on the profile of the candidates. This solution has several advantages for applicants: they will no longer need to fill out application forms online, they can see who in their network is working in the business in which they apply and they can easily raise more recommendations from professional contacts.
