LinkedIn has today announced an update to its search, which will make it ‘even smarter and more streamlined’, so users don’t need to search for people, companies, or jobs separately.

The updates will also mean that the LinkedIn search will become auto-complete, and will include suggested searches.

According to Johnathan Podemsky, product manager at LinkedIn, 5.7 billion professionally oriented searches were carried out on LinkedIn last year.

He added that changes to the search will now include automated alerts, so users can save a search and be alerted by LinkedIn when any changes are made.

The new smarter search is starting to roll out to members today and will be available to all global members in the coming weeks.
