iPhone app promotes hiring through LinkedIn
LinkedIn has introduced two new mobile services. The first, Recruiter Mobile, is an iPhone app that manages job applications, as well as talking with candidates and hiring managers. Recruiters can track candidates' profile updates, and respond to people via phone, text, email, or LinkedIn's own InMail. The app is a free download, but requires a special link provided by LinkedIn.
The other new service, Mobile Work With Us, is a smartphone-friendly version of an existing desktop feature. Users can search for friends, coworkers, and other contacts on LinkedIn, and discover job openings at their associated companies. The option appears at the top of members' web profiles.
