LinkedIn stock took a nice little dive on that announcement...

I just went to try it out...

Not impressed.

Big problems with locality - I searched for jobs in my home town and "within 50 mi", and was offered opportunities in Great Britain. That would be one heck of a morning commute.

I'd be better off visiting each of their supplier partners separately. I suppose it would be handy if I could search all those sites at once and see aggregated results, but... it's not that. The listing providers are tabbed.

thumbs down.

Is it just a question of poor implementation?
The idea is good, imho.

yes, it's poor implementation. Conceptually poor, as well as being functionally faulty.

It's actually nothing more than searching several different job sites in an AJAXy tabbed interface. No different from using, say... Firefox?
