Looking to learn more about a company you admire? Have some connections at a company, but you’re not sure what they do? Maybe you’ll soon enter the job search and want to get a feel for the type of positions available. LinkedIn Jobs is a great place to start!
As an example, I’ll use Nationwide Insurance, headquartered in neighboring Columbus, and an employer of plenty of Denison alumni! It’s very easy
- Go to LinkedIn Jobs.
- Search a company, keyword, or position.
LinkedIn Jobs allows users to explore the positions and companies in which they’re interested and see how they’re connected. You can see below that I have three connections who currently work at Nationwide, and they’ve hired 21 individuals from Denison. If I were interested in the position, I’d have Denison in common with 21 employees. Having Denison in common gives me a great place to start a conversation!
You can also learn more about other select employees, including past employers, their university, and their skills, all at a glance:
Lastly, you can follow the company, get to know their values, see other available positions at the company, and explore similar positions outside the company:
LinkedIn Jobs allows individuals to apply directly from the page or save a job for later. It’s a great way to research companies as you begin the job search, so get out there and explore!
