How to Review LinkedIn Job Applicants
Click the Profile Matches tab to see additional potential applicants for this job.
In this example, LinkedIn analyzes the job listing and then looks through LinkedIn member profiles to see what is a match for the position based on the job description and skills requirements. When you click the Profile Matches tab, you are taken to a results page.
LinkedIn displays the name, headline, photo, and location of each potential applicant and a score that indicates how closely they match, based on a 10-point scale. This helps you determine whether the person in the search result has the right skills as indicated by his profile.
At this point, you could go through the search results and look for applicants you'd want to approach to see if they'd be interested in the position. There are links in each search result box to save their profile or send them an InMail message.
If someone is a second- or third-degree network member, that degree is shown next to their name. Scroll to the bottom of the page and click the Show More link at the bottom to see more search results.
