Anyway, going back to the button. Apply with linkedin button can be embed it on companies websites like twitter or Facebook buttons. The button basically lets you submit your LinkedIn profile as your resume. Once you submit your job application, you can  message your contacts at the company and ask for a referral – That is a really good feature, Way to go Linkedin. Also, you can manage you applications on your “Saved Jobs” tab.
