LinkedIn is gettings its own Snapchat-style stories feature. According to report, it’s currently being tested for U.S.-based students and recent graduates using the LinkedIn app, hence the name: “Student Voices.”
The feature lets you post short videos — but not photos — as a collection for others to enjoy. The post vanishes after seven days, though can still be viewed by visiting the user’s Recent Activity section, accessible via their profile.
Product manager Isha Patel told TechCrunch that it’s sort of an extension of their resume, but more personal:
It’s a great way for students to build out their profile and have this authentic content that shows who they are and what their academic and professional experiences have been. Having these videos live on their profile can help students grow their network, prepare for life after graduation, and help potential employers learn more about them.
According to TechCrunch, LinkedIn confirmed that they plan to roll it out to other sets of users eventually as well.
