LinkedIn Company Search

In LinkedIn on February 26, 2011 at 4:04 pm

Google, Bing and Facebook aren’t the only hot shots in town getting an upgrade… Check out LinkedIn’s newly launched Company Search.  This will be especially helpful for the sales professionals and job seekers.  You are now able to filter through a set of results to include only companies where you have a direct connection or that are in your extended network.  Read more below, or on the LinkedIn blog:

Your professional network isn’t just about the people you know, it’s also about the companies in your network and how you’re connected to them.

Today, we’re very pleased to launch a new Company Search on LinkedIn.  Now you can search for companies not only by attributes such as location, industry, and size but also by how you are connected.  You can filter a set of results to include only those companies where you have a direct connection or broaden your search to include companies in your extended network.

Results are personalized for you based on a number of factors including the keywords used in your search, any filters you have applied, and your overall connection strength to that company.  When searching for a company, we not only look across the words used to describe that company but also the words that the company’s employees use to describe themselves on their LinkedIn profiles.

If you’re looking for a job, Company Search is a great place to get started.  You can refine your search to a list of target companies, filter to only those firms hiring on LinkedIn, and then quickly view the jobs that company has posted.

Get started with the new LinkedIn Company Search here.
