LinkedIn will launch a button for employers' websites called 'Apply With LinkedIn' that allows job candidates to submit their LinkedIn profiles as resumes, according to a report.
Twitter and Google have both launched new buttons this week, and now it seems LinkedIn will also introduce a new way for third-party sites to integrate its services as well.
A 'source briefed on the feature' told GigaOm that the new feature, which will be displayed alongside job descriptions on partner sites, will launch later this month.
Employers are an important demographic for the newly public company. As GigaOm points out, hiring solutions are LinkedIn's highest earner, generating 43% of the company's revenue.
Although other social networks can easily compete for ad dollars, LinkedIn has long dominated the professional corner of social media. Integrating itself further within the jobs space is a smart move.
