Is LinkedIn destined to change the job market forever?

It's a tough job market out there, particularly for young people. Fool contributor David Meier believes that LinkedIn (LNKD.DL) might be able to improve that situation over the long term.

In the video, David shows how LinkedIn is disrupting the traditional job search market, and why this is good news for students and professionals. If LinkedIn is able to deliver on its mission, then investors will benefit as a result. Those investors who focus too much on LinkedIn's valuation metrics might be missing the bigger story here.
