In an effort to support organizations that are working to combat the novel coronavirus pandemic, LinkedIn is now offering free resources to all essential services worldwide. The professional networking site wants to speed up the hiring process by offering free job postings between April 1 to June 30.
In an announcement, LinkedIn explained its strategy to help these organizations in finding the right talent for critical roles:
Free job postings for healthcare companies
Starting today, LinkedIn will allow healthcare companies, including medical-practice, and medical-device, and nonprofit organizations and essential services such as freight delivery services, supermarkets, and warehouses to post jobs for free. Notably, the offer is valid for the next three months.
Improved visibility of jobs
As a part of LinkedIn's efforts to make it easier for job seekers to spot open positions, the company is bringing two major changes on its platform. Based on the LinkedIn profile, those job seekers who match the specific skills mentioned in the job posting will see them on their homepage. In addition, automatic alerts would be sent to people who are equipped with the relevant skills.
LinkedIn calls for volunteers
Considering the increased need for volunteers to help nonprofit and healthcare organizations, the platform has now expanded its Recruiting for Good program. With that in mind, LinkedIn's own recruitment team is going to source and screen the right talented people to fill the volunteer and paid positions.
According to LinkedIn, your organization’s LinkedIn Company Page and the job advertisement should list one of the aforementioned industries to qualify for the free job posting offer.
