LinkedIn Targets the High School Crowd

LinkedIn Targets the High School Crowd

In an effort to grow its user base further, LinkedIn recently launched University Pages, a service meant for high school students looking to better explore their career paths and college options. Starting on Sept. 12, the company will be accepting users as young as 14 years old in the U.S.

In the following video, Fool contributor Steve Heller believes that any move geared toward attracting more users gives LinkedIn a long-term runway for revenue growth, particularly within its talent solutions segment. The greater number of users connected to LinkedIn's professional network, the more attractive its platform becomes to paying recruiting customers, and the easier it will be for LinkedIn to leverage its pricing power on said customers.
