With the LinkedIn mobile application you can search for people, companies, groups, and jobs from the Search tab of the LinkedIn mobile app. LinkedIn has made search 300% faster in the latest version of the application.
- Next, I want to give you a quick overview of how you can search for people, companies, groups and jobs from the Search tab. I'll select it in the bottom right hand corner and you can see right away any recent searches that we've made. You simply type your query in a search bar at the top of the page. So I'm going to look for myself, Brad Batesole. And you'll see right away I appear. And I can simply select the option there and just like that, I'm now viewing my profile. I'll tap the Back icon. And if I want to clear that search, I can select into the field and choose the x option there on the right hand side.
Now we can see that my recent searches involve myself and Jobs for the title, Marketing. If you're looking for particular keyword, let's say graphic design, you'll notice that information becomes available to you as it populates. You can see companies, jobs, as well as other people. Now if I didn't select a particular person, in this case, I simply chose graphic designer and searched for it, I'm going to have a list of information available to me. Here I can see second degree and first degree connections related to this topic.
I also have the option to filter for more results here towards the bottom of the screen. So I can tap in for jobs, groups, schools, and even companies. In the upper right hand corner is how you can filter this particular search. I've already searched for graphic designer and I'm going to tap that filter option and it allows me to refine the search. So I can say, you know what? I'm only interested in first degree connections. I can search in a particular location, in this case United States. And we can even add in current companies or industries. Once you're done refining your search, you select Done in the upper right hand corner and now we can see that James Donell is the only person that matches my particular search query.
I can go back. And again, I can tap into this box and choose the x icon there. And you also notice that if you do a search and you don't hit Search right away, you also see some of these categories associated. So I can tap in for jobs, tap in for people or I can tap in for groups about that particular topic. I'll choose the x and there we go. We're back to our research searches. If you want to clear all of your recent searches, just there towards the top of the screen, below the Cancel word is an x icon. I'll tap the x.
I'll click Dismiss. And just like that, we've cleared all of our recent searches. Take a minute and explore the new search feature and see if you can find an interesting group or maybe a new person to connect with.
