The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a huge economic toll globally with the latest UK unemployment rate at 4.8% according to the Office for National Statistics.

To lend a helping hand to those impacted, LinkedIn has launched a new tool called Career Explorer that helps you identify new kinds of jobs based on your skills.

It does this by utilising data gathered from their 722 million members to map career paths that professionals have taken. LinkedIn then merges this data with the current in-demand jobs.

Check out the Career Explorer and see where your skills can take you.

Unlike a job search engine, the LinkedIn Career Explorer tool matches a person’s skills with jobs they might not have considered before. It also suggests which skills you may want to learn to become even more relevant and provides you with direct links to the appropriate courses in LinkedIn Learning.

The Career Explorer can also show you relevant jobs and people in your network who are already in these roles so you can start a conversation.
