Has anyone here been able to land a job via LinkedIn?

I noticed that you can apply to a job on LinkedIn and it even tells you how many applicants there are for a job. Has anyone tried this and has it resulted in getting contacted for an interview?

    I haven't landed a job by using the apply button, but I did land my last job at a major Fortune 50 financial firm via LinkedIn. A corporate recruiter for the company found my profile on there and contacted me. I'm also getting anywhere from 4-6 contacts from recruiters each week on there.

    Were they from recruiters contacting you or did you have some sort of method that you used? (I.E. apply to a job via linkedin, add the recruiter, send a message to recruiter, etc).

    Saw a lot of interesting positions on LinkedIn but never applied. From time to time, recruiters do reach out but they never offer anything worth pursuing.

    Twice by a recruiter contacting via Linkedin. None by applications on Linkedin.
