When it comes to finding a job online undoubtedly LinkedIn is the best professional social media platform and a powerful job search tool. LinkedIn provides us an opportunity to directly connect with the job provider/recruiter to get better insights into the job requirements.
LinkedIn allows employers to post job openings to the site (like any online job board), and you can search for these openings using the job search tool.
LinkedIn also allows you to use your connections to find new positions and ask for recommendations. Additionally, you can follow companies so you’ll always be notified of their latest LinkedIn posts.
You can search and find jobs on LinkedIn form the LinkedIn Jobs search tool. The problem is this space is mostly spammed by various recruitment and placement consultants which post duplicate jobs number of times. So, it is very difficult and frustrating to find genuine and quality jobs directly posted by the company recruiters and job consultants.
