LinkedIn’s new button – Apply with LinkedIn, launched today – allows job candidates to instantly submit their LinkedIn profiles to a potential employer’s website.Chief executive Jeff Weiner says Apply with LinkedIn is the “next phase” of the company’s open platform effort, giving companies access to a talent pool of more than 100 million LinkedIn professionals around the world. Companies including Foodspotting and Formative Labs have already added the Apply with LinkedIn plugin to their websites. Firms will have the option to customise LinkedIn’s new button and add up to three questions for the applicant to complete, such as a candidate’s willingness to relocate, option to add a cover letter, or customised questions.
