LinkedIn helping with the fight
LinkedIn is providing free job postings for companies and services that are deemed essential during the COVID-19 pandemic as hospitals, supermarkets, warehouses, and logistics companies scramble for personnel.
Since the pandemic began, LinkedIn has seen a surge of job postings for the healthcare industry, as well as logistics and freight services.
The free job postings for the following industries will be free from April 1 to June 30, 2020:
- Healthcare, including hospitals, clinics, medical devices, medical practice, and mental health
- Freight delivery services
Aside from the free postings, LinkedIn has also contributed to a collective $22 million funding drive, going directly to front line organizations, while it’s also made a range of LinkedIn Learning courses available for free to assist people in adjusting to working from home, finding a new job and other impacted elements.
