RIM and LinkedIn have once again updated their revived LinkedIn app for BlackBerry. This new version allows you sync your LinkedIn connections with existing contacts in your address book. It also supports LinkedIn Jobs, Groups, and more including:
- Staying in the Know – With LinkedIn 2.1 you now have access to view all of your ‘Saved Jobs’ as well as View and Save Jobs that are ‘Recommended’ for you making it easy and convenient for customers to stay in the loop and to be the first to know about job opportunities.
- Real-time Access to Professional Groups – Put your professional network at your fingertips with LinkedIn 2.1. You can now easily and quickly grow your professional connections by accessing, adding, viewing and participating in Groups. Access ‘Groups You May Like’ and join these groups right from your BlackBerry smartphone. You can also see Pending Group Memberships and see and add content to Groups you’ve already joined.
- Syncing your LinkedIn Connection Information with BlackBerry Contacts – LinkedIn 2.1 keeps you connected with your professional network by giving you the ability to sync/merge your LinkedIn Connection Information with your BlackBerry contacts. A new contact can optionally be created if none exists.
This is an awesome update for LinkedIn and I highly recommend picking it up free in App World
