The way in which employers and employees interact is about to be permanently changed by LinkedIn's new embeddable job applications, a web tool that makes applying for work as simple as sending a friend request.

This past April, LinkedIn rolled out a series of web applications aimed at simplifying the process of job hunting. Today, the professional social network hopes to complete their vision by including embeddable job applications on company websites.

Say, for example, you read a press release from Intel; at the bottom of the webpage, you'll likely see a LinkedIn "apply here" button right next to the Reddit, Facebook and Twitter icons. That button will automatically send your LinkedIn résumé to Intel's recruitment server -- easy as pie! Best of all, the embeddable job apps are easily customizable and only requires a small morsel of code.
