Expanding the ‘document upload’ feature on its platform, Microsoft-owned job-seeking platform LinkedIn is now allowing users to upload PDFs, PowerPoint Presentations and other documents directly to their Feeds as well as within group posts.

“Members can now upload documents and presentations such as PDFs and PowerPoints directly to the feed, in a group, or to the LinkedIn Page, where people can read and comment, sparking further discussion,” Margaret Taormina, Product Manager, LinkedIn wrote in a blog-post on Tuesday.

In July 2018, LinkedIn Messaging got the ability to allow attaching documents and since November 2018 the platform had allowed companies to upload PDFs and PowerPoint presentations on their official pages.

Now, the expansion to personal profiles is another opportunity that the platform has offered to users to showcase their skills and expertise in additional formats, which could be hugely beneficial, Social Media Today said.

To the surprise of millions of LinkedIn users, the high-profile job of Google CEO Sundar Pichai was up for grabs on Microsoft-owned professional networking platform and some wannabes even applied to become what would be a dream job on Earth.

Later, LinkedIn accepted it was actually a security bug that let users post an official-looking job opening on nearly any firm’s LinkedIn business page.

These unofficial listings showed up on a company’s “Jobs” page and looked like any other job opening posted legitimately by the organisation, Mashable reported on Sunday.

The job posting for Google CEO, put up by Michel Rijnders, evoked mixed responses from LinkedIn users.

One user posted: “Applying to be CEO of Google on LinkedIn. Sundar’s been doing a great job so far. $GOOG Q2 earnings were strong, so a little strange to see this opening”.

LinkedIn responded: “Thank you Michel Rijnders for bringing this to our attention. We’ve removed the posting and we’re resolving the issue that allowed this post to go live. LinkedIn is a place for real people to have real conversations about their careers”.

Usually, creating job postings on the platform needs a premium subscription, but Rijnders could post job opening for Goofle CEO on LinkedIn at no cost.

“The fake listings appeared on the tech giants’ LinkedIn business pages alongside their other job openings. The listings also appeared in LinkedIn’s job search. There was no approval process required,” the report added.

LikedIn said that “It’s not a place for fake jobs-we are committed to stopping fraudulent jobs from ever reaching our members through automated technology and the help of our members reporting any suspicious job postings.” (IANS)
