Today LinkedIN is unveiling their latest business opportunity tool – the Apply with LinkedIN web plug-in.

Our goal with Apply with LinkedIn is to help every professional put their best foot forward, anywhere across the web, when they take that leap to apply for a new position, a dream job.

LinkedIN wanted to make it easy for candidates to submit their profile for any job application on the web with one simple click.

There are hundreds of organizations that are part of this debut, with some exciting new job opportunities being highlighted today; Netflix, TripIt, and Photobucket to name a few.

Along with profile submissions, LinkedIn is working closely with the top Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) to help them and their customers match the best candidates for the right jobs.

Check out the Apply with LinkedIN plugin and showcase here.

    Many active LinkedIn users have few marketable skills and are desperate for jobs. Making it easier for these people to send out large numbers of resumes to big companies only increases the amount of pointless resumes sent out there and makes using LinkedIn even worse IMO. I’m not sure what the answer is exactly, but somebody with actual job skills has little reason to ever touch LinkedIn. I’d rather they focus on that problem first – make LinkedIn useful for employed people with skills. That would provide more value to many people that don’t touch LinkedIn except to maybe update their resume once every few years.

  • @WillyDMZ interesting comment Willy – I hear your point. Maybe someone closer to the LinkedIN announcement and release of this tool will respond with more clarity.

    I, on the other hand, do see value in LinkedIN for ongoing professional networking. But like with anything, it all depends on how it’s used

  • Really surprised LinkedIn didn’t already do this. With the information it has on people you could even set jobs for filters: only those with masters degrees, must have x years experience in y industries and z recommendations. Think how easy this would be for employers, but this really is too late for mass adoption.

  • This is an excellent tool. It’s appears it will serve as a central source of locating potential employers/employees, their connections, recommendations, etc. LinkedIn has provided a platform for true representation of an individual and businesses. I believe it will ellicit accountability, credibility, proper dissemination of information.
