As more and more people search for better paying jobs, or an advancement in their career, many of them forget to look internally in the very company they work for. LinkedIn is looking to make internal jobs more visible, and has today announced a new feature to its service that will display job openings within a user own company.

The new Internal Job Recommendations feature is designed to help companies display their job listing to their current employees better because it says that most companies assume their job listings are viewed by its employees more than they actually are. "We not only received more internal applicants coming from LinkedIn, we also saw them moving through the process. And it's been unbelievably simple," said Recruitment Sourcing Manager Lee Robinsonfrom the Westpac Group.

 

In a blog posting about the new feature, LinkedIn said that: "It increases employee awareness of internal job opportunities by placing jobs in front of relevant employees as they're networking or beginning to look externally. Internal Job Recommendations will appear in the "Jobs You May Be Interested In" module on LinkedIn.com, corresponding emails, and even on your intranet via our new Internal Job Recommendations widget."
