LinkedIn is a very strong networking tool, as well as a job searching tool. Therefore, it is possible to find a job from a LinkedIn posting, however, I would say that it is unlikely that a job offer itself would come directly through this tool. That being said, LinkedIn is a powerful tool for your job search right now. Leverage it as much as you can by research potential contacts at companies which you are targeting, connect with those individuals and build your network. Also, if you build a robust profile for yourself, it can be a great tool for others to find you.
