Taking social media to the next level is the LinkedIn Job Application Button. The website is launching a function that will allow job seekers to easily apply to positions through their profiles.

The button, called "Apply with LinkedIn," will let candidates on the job hunt "submit their LinkedIn profiles as resumes," according to Mashable. The LinkedIn Job Application Button will appear on Employers' websites beside the description of the position being offered. This new function will make things easier for both employers and employees. Companies can search through applications very easily with the built-in feature, which sorts through the candidates' data to narrow down the applicants.

With the LinkedIn Job Application Button, job seekers can provide employers a fuller insight into who they are with just one easy click. Stats for Social Media Resumes Trending: Older & Warm
