Enterprise networking service LinkedIn has expanded its offerings to allow users to apply for jobs on mobile devices.
The new feature – which will be available on the latest versions of the LinkedIn iOS and Android apps – will allow users to apply for jobs and save application postings.
The feature will also allow users to apply for job postings without needing to attach a CV, with the information on a user's profile page providing the information instead.
LinkedIn hopes that the feature will allow users to better expand their enterprise networks and connect with job postings.
LinkedIn associate product manager Vaibhav Goel said: “We have heard from many of you that you want the ability to apply directly from your mobile device, but that managing and editing résumés on a small screen can be challenging.
“With that in mind, we’re introducing the ability to apply for jobs without a résumé attachment from mobile.”
LinkedIn's job listings have caught heat in recent days as the company's advertising policies have come under fire. A job posting featuring an attractive woman was featured on an advertising image for IT positions.
The posting triggered a debate over perceptions of appearance in the IT jobs market and stereotypes surrounding the portrayal of IT professionals in the media.
