What advantages does our Jobs section have over traditional job websites?

The fact that the job ads are combined with links to posters’ contact network and profile information means that the Jobs section on XING provides you with a number of advantages: When responding to the employer or recruiter you can refer to your connection path, revealing which contacts you might both be connected with. You can make contact with the poster more easily and on a more personal note due to the fact that you can view their profile information. You can view other connections to the company that is advertising the vacant position. And you receive job openings that may interest you, based on the information you have entered in your profile.
