LinkedIn rolls out new profile design and Premium Spotlight subscription for newbies

It is now early June, which means a fresh crop of college graduates are eagerly entering the workforce — and likely have very little clue how to get the job they want. LinkedIn is capitalizing on the times in an announcement Wednesday, which highlights the company’s latest profile redesign, premium features, and a new pricing tier catered to newcomers. Premium members will gain early access to the new layout, font and custom background elements of LinkedIn profiles, as well as suggestions to improve profiles, a fuller look at all people who viewed profiles, and the option to “open” a profile to all LinkedIn users. But the big draw for new grads will be Premium Spotlight, a low-cost, entry-level Premium tier designed to convert jobseekers into power users.
