Join May Chow for an in-depth discussion in this video LinkedIn mobile apps, part of LinkedIn for Veterans.
- We recognize that most of you spend the majority of your day on your smartphones. Additionally, Linkedin's homepage might not be accessible from government computers. Therefore, we make it easy for you to connect with opportunity with our Linkedin mobile apps. - [Voiceover] There are three must-have apps: Linkedin, Linkedin job search, and Linkedin learning. Simply do a search for these on your smartphone's app store and download them free of charge. The Linkedin mobile app is focused on easily allowing you to connect with your professional network and professional content.
There are five main sections: home, my network, messaging, notifications, and me. This app is really just a scaled-down version of the Linkedin website. The home tab allows you to share updates or photos, and review updates and posts by Linkedin members. My network shows you other people you may know who are on Linkedin, and allows you to accept or deny connection requests. Messaging gives you a quick way to reach out to other Linkedin members, and read your in-mails.
And notifications give you updates about your network, or on how others are engaging with your content. By clicking on the me tab, you can access your profile quickly, and see who's read your profile. Oftentimes, you'll meet another professional contact, but you're not at your laptop; just look them up on your phone, and immediately connect with them. Linkedin job search makes the job search an easier, on-the-go process.
Use the search box to identify opportunities with specific companies, job titles or locations. Jobs that fit that description will appear on the screen. You can then create a job alert to receive a daily notification of any new jobs that become available. The discover tab will show you other potential opportunities that are currently available based on your initial search, and based on the searches of candidates like you. Track stores every job you've viewed, saved or applied to all in one place.
And notifications will show you all the alerts that you have received based on your activity. The Linkedin learning app is an outstanding way to learn skills anytime, anywhere. After you've logged on to the app, you'll see the courses that you're currently taking, or have taken. You'll also see suggestions for recommended courses based on your profile and activity. Finally, you can browse the library to review the more than 9000 courses that Linkedin offers in its catalog.
- These three apps will be great additions to your smartphone. They will allow you to always have access to opportunity. Take a few minutes to download all three apps, so you can use them anytime, anywhere.
