Out-of-the-ordinary job opportunities on LinkedIn (infographic)

16 May 2013

LinkedIn has more than 220,000 job opportunities listed on its website, the business social network says, and its new infographic highlights some of the more unique roles.

Those unique job opportunities include a position as a ground electronics technician based at McMurdo Station in Antarctica, and an increasing number of jobs for ‘ninjas’.

“At LinkedIn, our mission is to connect talent with opportunity at massive scale,” Luke Baxter, group manager, Online Talent Solutions at LinkedIn, wrote on the LinkedIn Blog.

“In the past 18 months, we’ve more than doubled the number of job opportunities posted on LinkedIn.”

Baxter also wrote that LinkedIn has more than 8,000 internship opportunities posted on the site, just in time for students seeking summer jobs.

The infographic also charts the internship jobs that have generated the most attention.
