The University of Tampa (UT) has announced that it will be partnering with LinkedIn to create the LinkedIn Students app.

The new app, which is a personal job exploration guide, will allow students to explore the initial steps of their professional careers.

According to the agreement, students will be able to search jobs on LinkedIn and HIRE-UT, UT’s career management service, through the app.

According to the university, students who download the app will be able to:

“Discover the best jobs and companies, based on career paths of similar UT alumni; be the first to hear about and apply to jobs matched to their background; read tips on resumes, interviews and more from top career experts on LinkedIn.”

The app will be updated daily with personalized tips to help the career process.

“Finding a job you like can be hard,” UT Director of Career Services Mark Colvenbach said. “But we believe our partnership with LinkedIn will help students be more competitive in their job searches by being better informed and prepared.”

Colvenbach also said that he believes the app will be able to aid students by keeping them informed and prepared for the competitive job market.
