LinkedIn gives job hunters refined search experience, adds remote work filter

Despite a robust set of tools for tracking down jobs, searching for one on LinkedIn could still involve a mess of tabs and quickly losing your way. However, today, LinkedIn is debuting a revamped jobs search experience that seeks to address several pain points while also adding plenty of new features.

From the LinkedIn blog:

With the new LinkedIn Jobs search experience, you can scroll through jobs details, save the job that interests you, and see all the most important information - like company size, how many applicants there are, and who in your network can help - right at the top of the page, quickly giving you the context you need to decide if a job is the right fit for you.

In addition to the refined search experience, job seekers will now find a new filtering option for remote work. Selecting the filter from the location box will filter the results to only include jobs that are tagged as fully remote. Your personal career preferences can also be set to denote that you're interested in remote work, giving recruiters a heads-up that you're open to the prospect.

Lastly, LinkedIn's Salary feature now lets you search by company, so you can see what people at the company to which you're applying typically make for your prospective role. And when you follow companies on LinkedIn, you'll now have the option to turn on job alerts, so you can know the moment a company you're interested in posts new openings.
