The world’s largest professional network, Linkedin, launched Linkedin Placements on Wednesday, aimed at making graduating students across India easily find their first job.
Developed locally by more than 40 Linkedin employees, Linkedin Placements enables students to apply for jobs from anywhere and anytime and stay informed. The professional network is piloting Linkedin Placements first in India.
Linkedin recently rolled out a revamped messaging service along the lines of modern chat apps, departing from its unpopular design that resembled email.
The new service will include features such as GIFs and stickers to add a “little extra personality” to user’s chats, the company said in a blog post. The messaging service now has improved push and email notifications and messages are organized in a chat-style format with conversation threads akin to most messaging apps today such as Facebook’s Messenger and WhatsApp.
LinkedIn, which operates the biggest social networking site for professionals, has started to roll out the new messaging service to English-language users accessing its platform via a desktop or through an app.
Users can also attach photos and documents to messages. The company also said it was looking at offering voice and video calling with the messaging platform in the future.
