LinkedIn has launched a new beta product called Career Explorer, aimed at college graduates.

"Students now have the ability to explore different career paths based on their school, level of education, and desired industry," explains LinkedIn’s DJ Patil. "In addition to visualizing various career paths, they’ll also be able to find relevant job opportunities, top companies, estimated salary ranges as well as the people in their network who can get them there."

The tool provides recommendations for career paths based on work interests and the real paths others with similar profiles have taken. Users can create and save multiple paths.

It also provides stats and industry trends about potential professions, jobs, and  companies. It shows relevant job openings and additional info about how users can secure or find more info about the positions that are open. Users can then follow the employers that interest them.

LinkedIn is rolling out Career Explorer to students at 60 universities across the U.S. They’ll release it to the entire LinkedIn community in the coming months.

    After reading this article I can’t help but post this comment about my website that solves the college recruiting problem for students and employers and allows students from all over the world to prove that they are just as smart and hard working as any other student. www.NoodleStorm.com is a website where organizations can submit problems of any type (e.g. business, nonprofit, engineering, computer science, etc.) for college students to solve. The organizations can receive multiple solutions from students all over the world and then whittle through those solutions and pick the top candidates to come in for an interview. This will save organizations many thousands of dollars in recruiting costs and it gives every college student the opportunity to compete for top jobs. Students and professors from most of the top schools in the U.S. and from several international schools are signed up and organizations are submitting problems. Thanks everyone for allowing me to post this unabashedly self-serving comment.
