LNKD made the app available through Apple’s iOS App Store on Thursday. The new LinkedIn Job Search app is permits users to both search available job listings, using various filters to narrow results by relevance to search terms and geographical location, and apply online for jobs using data drawn from a users’ LNKD profile, InformationWeek notes.

Users can also track job listings that have been viewed and saved. The app will alert users when new jobs matching their search parameters are posted or when a submitted job application is viewed. While the LNKD job search app draws information from user profiles, activity on the app is not visible to others LinkedIn users.

The new LNKD app is only available for download to users in the U.S. Users can browse through available job listings, obtain more information in companies who post job ads, and save job listings that interest them for further review.

In Friday morning trading, LNKD shares fell almost 2%.
