LinkedIn debuts a Tinder-style mentorship service

By : |August 4, 2017 0

LinkedIn is introducing a new free service on its platform that connects users with potential mentors that can help them with professional advice.

According to TechCrunch, the Tinder-style mentoring service is free and currently being rolled out only in San Francisco and Australia. To start with, the professional network has roped in a handful of potential mentors, who will come up in the form of a list- Tinder-style, to users who indicate that they are interested in getting some mentoring.

Before signing up as a mentor or mentee, one has to give some detail about who you’d like to connect with, for example in terms of industry or school, and what kind of advice you’d like to give or receive. From there, you’re able to pair up and start chatting. The good part is that either side can terminate the communication at any point.

LinkedIn’s new move is a positive step and should come in handy for users in need of professional guidance and advice. The professional network also hopes that the service would boost user engagement on its platform.

While the service is currently live only in San Francisco and Australia, it is expected to be rolled out to other locations across the globe soon.
