When searching for a new job there are a lot of factors to take into consideration – career growth, salary, workplace environment and your commute. No one wants to spend hours of their day sitting in traffic or jumping across different public transport networks.
But not all job postings include an address, making it difficult to discern if it’s the right fit, which means you could be passing up on great opportunities or wasting time on a position that’s simply too far away. LinkedIn and Bing Maps have teamed up to makes this easier for job hunters with the new LinkedIn app feature.
Simply select a job posting on the app, scroll down and you’ll find a ‘See Your Commute’ map. This map allows you to calculate your daily commute via car, public transport and walk so you can decide if it’s the right fit for you.
And don’t bother factoring in extra time to account for traffic; Bing Maps does that for you. That way you get a true understanding of what your mornings and evenings will look like with this new potential job.
