LinkUp is a unique job search engine that pulls jobs exclusively from employer websites. Other sites like SimpleHired and Indeed tap employer websites but also mix in postings from job boards.

Job seekers using LinkUp don't need to share any personal information on the system or field inquiries from recruitment firms. All the jobs come directly from the source and are typically currently available positions.

Linkup promises no duplicate job listings or job pollution.

Read below for information on the benefits of LinkUp, how to search for jobs on the site, how to apply for jobs, and how to receive regular job alerts.

Why Company Websites?

There are multiple benefits to searching for jobs listed on company websites. Firstly, you can find some job listings that are not on other job search websites. Secondly, there is often more competition for jobs on large job search websites like Monster and Indeed, whereas there is less competition for jobs listed on company websites.

If you know what companies you want to work for, searching for listings only from those companies’ websites can also help narrow your search, and save you time and effort.

How to Search on LinkUp

You can generate a list of job vacancies via a simple search on the top of the start page. Enter keyword/s like a job title, company, or skill, and a preferred location by zip code, city, or state.

Then click on the “search” button and you will see an extensive list of jobs.

Advanced Search Options on LinkUp

LinkUp also offers a more detailed, sophisticated search accessed by clicking on “advanced” next to the “search” button. You can specify jobs by keyword or exact phrase. You can even specify all jobs without a certain word.

You can also search by company, location, and time posted. You can then sort results by either best match or most recent.

You can search for jobs with particular job tags too. These tags range from “accounting and finance” to “automotive” to “legal.”

There are also ways to narrow your list of job vacancies after you click “search. You can narrow the list by clicking on filters situated on the upper left-hand side of the page. Filters include tags, cities, and distances. You can also browse jobs by employer name, including those companies with the most job listings.

You can also choose to save a job, email it to yourself (or someone else), or share it with others on social media. You can view similar jobs, and see all jobs at the same company. You can even have LinkUp alert you when the job is no longer available.

How to Apply For Jobs in LinkUp

Once you have generated a list of jobs, click on the job title to see a complete description. You can apply from the employer's job listing page by following the instructions. Those instructions will vary based on the company's hiring process.

Many employers will ask candidates to complete a registration form and/or application and may offer the opportunity to upload a resume and/or cover letter.

How to Set Up LinkUp Job Alerts

It is simple to set up alerts whereby the site will email you new listings that match your searches by email. Just enter your email address under "email new jobs that match this search" on top of the search results page and click on “send.”

You can also create a user login for LinkUp, either by using your email and creating a password, or by connecting through a social media account (such as Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, Twitter, or Yahoo!). With a LinkUp account, you can save searches, receive emails when a position is no longer available, and view your search history. This is also another way to set up regular job alerts.
