LinkedIn Debuts Tinder-Like Mentor-Matching Service

LinkedIn Debuts Tinder-Like Mentor-Matching Service. Need career advice? LinkedIn wants to hook you up with someone who can help. The business-focused social network this week unveiled a new service that is basically like Tinder for finding a mentor. As TechCrunch first reported, the new service aims to match members who are looking for career advice with those who can provide it.

"This is a lightweight way to identify and connect with other members and it works well with the informal, casual nature of today's changing workforce where you often need advice for certain situations such as job searching, salary negotiation or on the job questions," LinkedIn says. The service is free for mentors and mentees, so don't expect to get paid if you're the one doling out advice. Until this new mentor-matching service rolls out for everyone, those looking for career advice can check out LinkedIn ProFinder, which connects members with freelancers.
