Relevant Hashtags – Keep up with the companies you care about

You can now easily discover hashtags most relevant to the companies. Say, you’re preparing for an interview, you can now search the hashtags the company is promoting and their conversations to stay up to date with information as companies and their employees engage themselves in such discussions.

Improved Company Pages – New company insights

LinkedIn has collaborated with Crunchbase to incorporate relevant funding and investor information directly within the company page. The improved pages could help you stay updated and confirm interest in a company. Sales and business professionals can look up the company’s trajectory.
