Look for Company (or Companies) on LinkedIn

LinkedIn added a new Company Search feature, giving users of the professional networking site easier access to information on companies, as well as the ability to browse job listings. More from product manager for search and cloud Brad Mauney on the LinkedIn Blog:

Now you can search for companies not only by attributes such as location, industry, and size, but also by how you are connected. You can filter a set of results to include only those companies where you have a direct connection or broaden your search to include companies in your extended network.

Results are personalized for you based on a number of factors including the keywords used in your search, any filters you have applied, and your overall connection strength to that company. When searching for a company, we not only look across the words used to describe that company, but also the words that the company’s employees use to describe themselves on their LinkedIn profiles.

If you’re looking for a job, Company Search is a great place to get started. You can refine your search to a list of target companies, filter to only those firms hiring on LinkedIn, and then quickly view the jobs that company has posted.
