What feature should LinkedIn implement to make it a more useful part of your online presence?

Answer by Arpana Prajapati:

Building more insightful Career Pages could save users a lot of time looking for information across the web, and make LinkedIn the default search platform for all-things-career. For example, current Product Management skills page could become even more valuable to me by displaying these additional insights:

  • Product Managers that are 1st degree to me, PMs who worked at company as mine, PMs who went to the same school as mine.
  • Adding an angle of mentorship. Allow people to indicate their interest in mentoring career aspirants.
  • LinkedIn Search trends for Product Management. LinkedIn Employment trends for PM. Projections. Ranking against other MBA career options.
  • Courses taken by such professionals across Lynda, Udacity, Coursera, EdX, as indicated on their LinkedIn profile.
  • Trending careers based on post PM experience.
  • More importantly, returning this career page on top of search results. I don’t see it in search at all, right now. I had to click on my skills to visit this page. See below

When thinking from all-things-career perspective, LinkedIn could also consider strategic capabilities around:

  • Freelancing ecosystem such as UpWork.
  • Crowdsourcing or Competition ecosystem such as Kaggle.
  • Sales pipeline ecosystem.
