Think of LinkedIn as a professional Facebook. Students often use Facebook to interact with friends and find others with similar social interests.

Roadblock in Your Job Search? Use the New Jobs Feature on LinkedIn
Have you spent hours, days, or even weeks scrolling through hundreds of job listings trying to identify the "perfect job title" that fits your interests? You're not alone. One of the biggest challenges job seekers have is knowing what types of jobs to search for in their job search, or even which jobs exist.
LinkedIn heard you, and as a result launched new job pages designed with the job seeker in mind. Now, job seekers and students who are unfamiliar with the professional landscape can browse job titles within various job functions (e.g. education jobs, human resources job, or entry level accounting jobs). LinkedIn surfaces popular job titles and listings, as well as top cities and companies for a particular job, making it easier for job seekers and exploring students to learn more about opportunities in various fields.
