Check Out LinkedIn’s New Jobs Browsing Experience!

Have you spent hours, days, or even weeks scrolling through hundreds of job listings trying to identify the "perfect job title" that fits your degree? You're not alone. A challenge WGU students and alumni have is knowing what types of jobs to search for in their job search, or even which jobs exist.

LinkedIn has launched new job pages designed with the job seeker in mind. Now, job seekers and students unfamiliar with the professional landscape can browse job titles within various job functions (e.g. Information Technology, Healthcare Services, Education, or Human Resources). LinkedIn surfaces popular job titles and listings, as well as top cities and companies for a particular job.

As you browse job functions be sure to check out salaries as these can vary between job titles. Easily navigate to the salary explorer, and also explore our WGU Job Board to search for job listings for students and grads, and take a look at WGU’s employer research page for insight into companies you’re interested in to make informed decisions about your career.

Finding your dream job has never been easier!
