LinkedIn announced a partnership with hourly work marketplace Snagajob in an effort to create new resources for jobseekers looking for this kind of work.
The partnership will begin with a special Lynda.com trial for Snagajob members. Various product integrations and opportunities for joint research are planned for later in the year, but these things were not specified.
“Snagajob members can access the one-month free trial to Lynda.com content today to immediately take advantage of thousands of courses to help them acquire and improve on skills like communication, customer service, management, and more,” LinkedIn’s Scott Roberts said.
“We will also be collaborating with Snagajob to partner on joint research of the hourly market to provide deeper insight into the workforce and career trends. We look forward to sharing more about our work together as we look for ways to bring the deep expertise and knowledge of the job market to help professionals everywhere achieve their professional goals,” he added.
LinkedIn recently reported its quarterly earnings, and talked a bit about its Lynda plans during a related conference call. CEO Jeff Weiner said we can expect to see Lynda content more deeply integrated across LinkedIn’s premium products as well as more of Lynda content in the enterprise.
