Why Employers Should Use the New and Improved LinkedIn Pages

One particularly exciting aspect of Pages is that it offers admins an impressive new set of functions to better engage with their communities through key interactions. With the LinkedIn mobile app, it’s now possible to write Facebook-style update posts, respond to comments, and post documents like Word files, PowerPoint presentations, and PDFs. Additionally, by categorizing your page with hashtags of your choice, you can both contribute to and stay tuned into topics within your given industry. This makes it quite a bit easier to both discover the information you want and become more discoverable as a brand.

In addition to its useful new community interaction features, Pages allows you to think more precisely and strategically about what content you create on LinkedIn. It does this by providing a feature called Content Suggestions. Simply put, this presents you with trending topics based on your industry and the nature of your audience, enhancing the overall relevance and quality of your material. The Career Pages feature, meanwhile, gives you a more specialized method for engaging potential hires. Candidates can view this section of your page to learn more about your company culture, current openings, and other key information.
