LinkedIn Launches New Tools To Help Job Seekers

The platform has added nearly 100 new 'Skills Assessments'

Professional networking platform LinkedIn on Thursday launched new tools and resources to help unemployed professionals get back to work.

LinkedIn’s new ‘Career Explorer’ tool helps job-seekers find new jobs by mapping their skills to open roles, and the new #Hiring frame helps to hire managers to share that they are hiring right from their profiles, enabling job-seekers to see open job opportunities directly in their feed.

To help members prepare for the new up and coming technology roles, LinkedIn has also added new ‘Skills Assessments’ based on top trending skills so members can showcase their proficiency.

These new additions come at a time when hiring in India continues to recover at a 12 percent year-on-year growth rate in August 2020, as per LinkedIn’s labor market data, but competition for jobs is 30 percent higher than last year.
