Business-oriented social networking service LinkedIn has launched a new app to help students and new graduates get their dream job. The app called as ‘Tinder-style’ will work to help young people nearing the end of their studies get a foot into a competitive job market.
Called LinkedIn Students, the app attempts to connect soon to be graduates with fellow alums and entry level jobs that fit within their area of study. After surveying students nationwide, the professional networking company decided to put all of its college offerings including alum networking and job recommendations into this standalone app. Over the next month LinkedIn will also be ending its services for high school students, including its “Field of Study Explorer” and “University Rankings.” Headquartered in Mountain View, California, LinkedIn reported more than 400 million acquired users in more than 200 countries and territories in 2015.
