LinkUp is a national job search engine, only indexing jobs found on corporate career websites. Currently, job seekers can access and apply direct to over 700,000 active jobs from approximately 22,000 companies. By only including jobs from corporate career websites, and not allowing individual postings, LinkUp automatically filters out expired jobs, work-at-home and other job scams. Access to the website is completely free, and registration is not required. Employers can run targeted, paid search campaigns sponsoring some or all of their jobs and pay per click as candidates are directed to the company’s website. In addition to the search engine, LinkUp also offers an application for Facebook recruiting that automatically replicates jobs from a company’s website onto a corporate Facebook page.
