The need for students to get a job in time is an essential part of the education. Linkedin, being the world’s largest professional network, has considered the need of job and launched LinkedIn Placements for the students on Wednesday. The main aim of the plan is to make graduating students across India easily find their first job. This is for the first time that the networks like this have taken the initiatives to ease the students with the facilitative employment.

The initiative has been taken forward by the 40 Linkedin employees. It enables the students to apply for jobs from anywhere around the globe. The facility is provided to place the logins at any time and find the respective solutions. The network is the first to pilot the Placements facility in India. It is planning to come out soon with the innovation first in India.

Ganesan Venakatasubramanian, head, engineering, Linkedin India in a statement on launching the solution said, "Our conversations with students, placement officers and recruiters involved in campus recruitment point to an unmet need for efficiency and effectiveness".

Along with this, Linkedin has recently rolled out a revamped messaging service along the lines of modern chat apps. It has departed the older email like unpopular design of the platform. The new messaging service has been rolled out exclusively for the English language users, accessing its platform via a desktop or through an app.

The biggest social networking site for professionals provides a "little extra personality" to user’s chats by helping them to add on GIFs and stickers to the chat. The company said in a blog post regarding the statements and also provides the privilege to attach photos and documents to messages. The company was also looking at offering the voice and video calling functionality with the message platform. It provides an improved push and email notifications as for now. It has finally skinned the messaging app to the latest chat style format as Facebook’s Messenger and WhatsApp.
