[URL="http://www.LinkedIn.com"]LinkedIn[/URL] is continuing to differentiate themselves from "those other" social media sites and in a really great way. They are further positioning themselves as a professional social network this week by adding the "Apply With LinkedIn" button allowing users to directly apply for positions using their LinkedIn Profile as their resume. The button is being offered to businesses offering jobs and can be embedded much like a Facebook like button or a Twitter "Tweet This" button.

[URL="http://mashable.com/2011/07/25/apply-with-linkedin/"]Mashable[/URL] reported that LinkedIn also added other features to make applying for jobs easy and organized. "LinkedIn also makes it easy for you to manage your job applications with a “Saved Jobs” tab, so you can always double check who has your application."

[URL="http://techcrunch.com/2011/07/25/linkedin-debuts-embeddable-job-application-tool-for-companies/"]TechCrunch[/URL] wrote about the usability features for employers posting the jobs: "The new plug-in (initial details on the feature were originally revealed by GigaOm in early June), puts an “Apply with LinkedIn” button to any company website. Companies can customize the look and feel of the “Apply with LinkedIn” module to feel like part of a specific branding. And companies can manage submissions by routing applications to email address or a web app for applying for a job. The plug-in can also integrate with Applicant Tracking Systems, and only involves a small snippet of code to embed on a site."
