When it comes to choosing a job, there are various factors that must be considered; things such as what’s expected of you, the kind of work involved, how much you’ll be getting in terms of pay and also where the job is located. For this reason, LinkedIn is helping job applicants with a new feature called “Your Commute”.
According to the company, the newly launched feature will basically tell job seekers how far the job they’re applying to is.
When you visit job listings on LinkedIn from your mobile phone, you’ll start to see a ‘See Your Commute’ module. From here you can enter your address to calculate how long it would take you to get to your new office walking, driving or on public transportation.”
Prior to this, users could always do a quick search on the internet as to where the company might be located; however, with this feature, users won’t have to pause their job application hence making the process a more seamless experience. In addition to this, users can set their commute preferences and include information like how long they will be willing to commute.
These features should already be live so if you’re in the market for a new job and would like to factor in these variables, head on over to LinkedIn’s website for the details.
