Apply with LinkedIn: What it is and how does it work

The button can be added beside a open job and applicants can apply for that job using their LinkedIn profiles. LinkedIn profiles are standard and easy to browse through. Companies will not have a problem as everyone is used to LinkedIn profiles and familiar with how they work. The button 'Apple with LinkedIn' is like the Twitter Tweet button on the Facebook like button. It can be embedded anywhere across the web and the company hopes to make this the standard button to help companies connect with job applicants directly. Currently many of the large companies have a long registration process before you can apply for job they advertise on their sites. This is apart from the many job portals across the internet and various countries.
