If you’re in the market for a new job, there’s no better place to start than LinkedIn, the world’s most popular business-oriented service for professional networking. And when tapping the power of your professional network to seek out new opportunities, your quick responses to inquiries from potential employers become paramount.

LinkedIn has a decent iPhone and iPad client in the App Store, but it’s a little clunky and can be overwhelming and daunting to use. Enter Job Search, a new iPhone app from LinkedIn that makes it easy to find that dream job while sipping your latte…

“More than 40 percent of you are currently using mobile to look at jobs on LinkedIn,” writes LinkedIn in a blog post.

The job-finding power of LinkedIn in the palm of your hand allows you to quickly and efficiently explore the opportunities offered by companies near your current location.

And to really zero in on that perfect gig you’ve been dreaming about, use location-based search to get automatic recommendations and notifications.

You have a lot on your plate, so let us do some of the heavy lifting for you. Based on your saved searches, jobs you’ve viewed, and your LinkedIn profile, we’ll surface new and relevant opportunities for you.

Search supports advanced filters like Title, Location, Company, Industry or Seniority Level.

As you’d come to expect from LinkedIn, applying for a job offer with your LinkedIn profile is a matter of few taps. Finally, privacy-minded job hunters needn’t worry as the app won’t notify your LinkedIn network that you’ve just applied for a job.

Features include:

  • Quick and easy search based on title, location, or keywords
  • Recommended jobs based on saved searches, jobs you’ve viewed, and your LinkedIn profile
  • Notifications when new jobs match what you’re looking for
  • A super-simple application process using your LinkedIn profile
  • Total privacy – your network won’t hear a thing about your in-app activity

Download LinkedIn Job Search in the App Store.

The app is iPhone-only and requires iOS 7.0 or later.
