If you're looking for a job, you aren't alone. There are hundreds, if not thousands of people out of work or hoping for a better job or even a different one. That can make finding job postings in your area difficult. And if you're changing your career path, it can get even trickier. It's like finding a job becomes a full-time job in itself!
By the time you see a job posting on one of the major job search sites, so will thousands of other job hunters. In many cases, the posting will be from a third-party recruiting company, which means you're not even sure if the right person will get a chance to look at your resume. Wouldn't it be nice if you could see the job posting first and apply directly to the company without worrying about scams?
That's what LinkUp is about. Instead of having its postings come from third-party sources, LinkUp’s system pulls job postings directly from company websites. It searches more than 50,000 company sites a day for new job opportunities to update its 2 million job postings from all over the country.
One cool thingLinkUp allows you to do is browse for a job by company. Want to work for Amazon? You can see at a glance what jobs are available. You can then filter results down by state, city or job type to get just what you want. This also means you can find "hidden" jobs that companies don't expressly post on other boards.
While there’s no silver bullet for job search engines, LinkUp is looking to be a good addition to your job-seeking arsenal.
