Searching for Jobs on LinkedIn

You can use LinkedIn to search and apply for job opportunities that are posted by companies and recruiters, based on a keyword, title, or location. If you don’t want to apply for a job at the moment, you can save it by clicking Save above the job description. You’ll be able to access your saved jobs at any time to begin the application process.

Here’s how you can search for a job that suits your professional skills and specifications.

To search for a job:

Click the Jobs icon at the top of your LinkedIn homepage.
In the Search jobs field, type a job title, keyword, or company name. Keep in mind that you can use Boolean search modifiers to help refine your job search.
You can use the Search location field to type a city name, state/province/territory name, or country name. Your desired location may be pre-filled for you, but it can be updated by typing a different one into the textbox. A dropdown list will appear where you can select your desired location.
Click Search.
Use the filters at the top of the page to further refine your search by Date Posted, LinkedIn Features(including In Your Network, Under 10 Applicants, and Easy Apply), Company, Experience Level, and more. Click All filters to view additional filter options.
You can click the Sort by dropdown at the top of your search results to sort your search results by Relevance or Post Date.
The number of days the job has been posted for, is listed at the bottom of each job summary.
Click a job title to view the job details.
Click Easy Apply or Apply (options may vary). Learn more about applying for jobs on LinkedIn.
