LinkedIn rolls out its career guidance and mentoring program in India

By : |November 16, 2017 0

LinkedIn is rolling out its career guidance service named ‘Career Advice‘ in India that will connect users with mentors who can help them figure out anything to do with their career, whether it’s ideas on how to find a new job, feedback for why they are not getting ahead or feeling satisfied at work, and maybe even to pivot to a new career altogether.

According to the company, more than 80 percent of professionals on the site have indicated a willingness to be a mentor or have one. The new feature will allow members to lean in on experienced individuals on the network and get guidance on any topic or even inquire about what the next job role should be.

“To get started with Career Advice, go to the dashboard on your LinkedIn Profile and find the Career Advice hub. From there, enter your preferences for the type of advice you’re looking to give or receive and we’ll recommend members based on what you’ve specified, mutual interests and what we know about you professionally,” LinkedIn wrote on its blog page. “We’re also exploring ways to specify if you’d like to mentor certain communities, like people facing unique barriers to economic opportunity. When you find a match, you’ll be alerted and you can then send a message to start a conversation about the advice you need.”

LinkedIn‘s Career Advice feature is rolling out now to members in the US, UK, India, and Australia and will be expanding globally in the coming months.
