LinkedIn Surpasses 300 Million Members [INFOGRAPHIC]
April 18, 2014
Today at LinkedIn we’re celebrating a milestone – we’ve surpassed 300 million members, giving recruiters like you access to an even deeper and diverse pool of talent. You want to know the best part? 85% of those members want to hear from you, according to our Talent Trends 2014 Report.
Thanks for helping us reach this milestone, but we’re not done yet! Ultimately, our vision it to create economic opportunity for every one of the 3.3 billion people in the global workforce.
We’ve got a long way to go. So in the meantime, here is an infographic that shows how our network of professionals has grown and evolved over the last five years. One thing in particular is worth calling out: our members are increasingly mobile. Every day, we see an average of 15 million profile views, 1.45 million job views and 44,000 job applications in over 200 countries via mobile. In fact, we expect to reach our mobile moment (where 50% of views on our network come from mobile) in latter half of 2014.
That’s why we’ve focused on making it easy for members to discover jobs on mobile via search and Sponsored Jobs in the feed and immediately apply simply using their profiles, and making it easier for you to recruit on the go via Recruiter Mobile.
