The new LinkedIn Your Commute feature adds another tool for prospective employees as it shows them commute times for prospective jobs. This new feature is based off previous research that indicates a strong link between a person's commute time and general happiness and is being implemented as a tool to bolster both the employee and employer. The LinkedIn Your Commute feature is currently only available on mobile and will only work with businesses where LinkedIn already has location information.

Users looking to take advantage of this situation will simply need to input their starting point, their preferred mode of travel, how long they would be willing to travel and the time they would like to start their commute. This data will then be factored into LinkedIn's job recommendations and only show the person to employers that meet those criteria.
