NEW YORK - LinkedIn Corp. launched a Web button yesterday that lets job applicants submit their profiles on the networking service’s site to employers that interest them.
The button, “Apply with LinkedIn,’’ appears on job listings on company and jobs websites. It’s LinkedIn’s version of efforts by others, such as Facebook, to spread beyond their own sites across the broader Web.
LinkedIn said thousands of companies have made the button available. They can customize it to include questions or ask for a cover letter.
