From The LinkedIn Blog:

In this economic environment it’s tough to find a job. But LinkedIn can help. Today we’re excited to announce a major upgrade for job seekers on LinkedIn: the Job Seeker Premium Account.

We spoke with hundreds of job seekers to understand their needs and designed a package of features to help them stand out from the crowd, reach out to hiring decision makers, and manage their job search more effectively. The new Job Seeker Premium Account enables job seekers to:

  • Move to the top of the hiring manager’s list as Featured Applicant when you apply to jobs on LinkedIn
  • Send personalized InMail messages directly to hiring managers, even those outside their network
  • Save profiles, add notes and keep track of contacts from your job search with Profile Organizer

We’re also launching a new Job Seeker Webinar, hosted by career expert Lindsey Pollak, that provides guidance on how to use LinkedIn to find a job and take control of your career. The webinar includes a series of specific, tactical tips for how job seekers can make the most of LinkedIn’s free and premium features. The 60-minute session is held monthly and is free for all LinkedIn members, which you can sign up for here.

And don’t forget that LinkedIn has tens of thousands of high-quality job listings that you can search, view and apply to for free. So if you’re looking for a job, give LinkedIn Jobs a spin. We think you’ll agree with Fortune Magazine that “if you are serious about managing your career, the only site that matters is LinkedIn”.

    Regrettably, the “Job Seeker Premium Account” will be of no use to you, no matter how “excited” the LinkedIn employees are.

    I don’t agree with Peter Foster. It highly depends on your qualification, type of work, education, motivation and what not. I find the Job Seeker Premium Account to be an extra valuable asset if properly used!
