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.
