LinkedIn Launches Job Portal for Recent Graduates

The crowded jobsite market just got a new player. Business networking site Linkedin which is also used by professionals for job hunting launched a job portal for Internships and Jobs for recently graduated students. The interesting thing with this job portal is that it is not country specific. When one clicks on the jobs listed it leads to the results of the Linkedin search of all Jobs listed there. So while the jobsite might be marketed to students it can facilitate as a job search for any professional. What would be seen now is how Linkedin would market this site to employers for employment branding initiatives. There is an India sales team too – so it would be interesting to see how the traditional job portals counter this niche threat from the networking site. Linkedin has been growing too. It crossed a 100 million members worldwide, recently and India membership saw a 76% growth over the previous year too.
