See the local labor market trends with the Career Coach Microsoft Teams app

Finding a job could soon be a lot easier for students thanks to a new Microsoft Teams update.

The video conferencing service adds local job market trends to its Career Coach Microsoft Teams app, allowing users to discover the opportunities offered by employers in their area.

The trends will come straight from LinkedIn , with Microsoft’s social media network providing the latest information for job seekers everywhere.

According to the official entry on the Microsoft 365 roadmap , the update is still in development, but should be rolled out to Teams users around the world before the end of February 2022.

The tool will be available to both faculty and staff licensees, which presumably means the target for the update will be university and college-level students.

Career Coach already aims to help students identify career goals that align with their passions, interests, and strengths, and enable them to make connections with alumni, colleagues, and educators who can support them on their career path.

The news is the latest in a long line of updates and upgrades to Microsoft Teams, as the company wants to make sure it’s as useful as possible to users.

In a similar vein to today’s news, Microsoft recently revealed that it is working on a new feature that will allow LinkedIn profiles to be displayed in Teams .

The information is displayed in personal chats, which means that colleagues can learn more about their colleagues, for example when planning a project or looking for help with onboarding.

Microsoft Teams continues to go from strength to strength, with the company’s latest numbers showing that the service now has more than 270 million monthly active users (MAUs).
