Are you Using LinkedIn Updates For Job Search?

Did you know you can search all of the updates on LinkedIn

for job postings?

Start from your Homepage on LinkedIn. But make sure you

start from the toolbar at the top of the page. Why, because

when you hover over the drop down arrow next to people, it

will give you a selection to choose from. The list include

1. people 2. updates 3. jobs 4. Companies 5. Inbox and

6. groups.

You want to select updates because this part of the search

includes the 10 filters from LinkedIn’s SIGNAL. The filters include

time, location, industry, network, company, school, groups, topics,

seniority, and update type.

So the first search term you want to enter into the search box is “HIRING”.

This will return all of the updates on

LinkedIn that have the word “HIRING” in it. The next step is your choice as

to which filter you want to use. I

usually search for location next then industry. And from there you have 8

more filters to you for search.

A lot of times the quantites of updates will require filters. One search I did resulted in 389,900 updates. Way to

many to look through. You can search by degree of connection or just the most recent results. LinkedIn SIGNAL’s

filters can show updates to within the last minute.

Good luck in you search for people companies, or JOBS!
