Linkedin Adds a ‘Job Search’ App to its Collection

 Linkedin came out with a job search centric app on Thursday. The app helps to ease the user by having built in filters like seniority level, industry and location, and the ability to save both searches and individual jobs for future reference. This sixth standalone app will also recommend positions to the user based on openings they’ve viewed and saved job searches.

Parker Barrile, VP of Product for LinkedIn Talent Solutions told Mashable  “Mobile apps work best when they are very focused on one specific use case or value proposition,” he said. “So whenever we see a use case among our members that we believe is meaningful enough or broadly based enough to merit its own app, we’ll build that app.

Although the app is being brought with a clear objective but it’s uncertain for now whether the strategy will work as LinkedIn’s news reader app, hasn’t been in the top 50 for US-News apps since the end of April, and Slideshare, LinkedIn’s newest standalone app released in April hasn’t hit the US Media according to App Annie.

Job search is available for iPhone users, but is only available in the U.S. for now. An Android version will be let out later this year, but there is no timetable for when international users will have access to Job Search, according to a spokesperson.
