If you're embarking on a job search, consider these tips:

  • Just because you use LinkedIn doesn't mean you're looking for a job. Many people use LinkedIn to keep in contact with others and to help them succeed in their current position.
  • No updates are sent out when you apply for a job on LinkedIn or through the Job Search mobile app.
  • Updates you post may be seen by your network or others viewing your profile.

You may also want to review your current Privacy & Settings:

If you're participating in groups for job seekers on LinkedIn, you can choose to not show the group logo on your profile or prevent updates from being sent when you join a group.

Note: If you do want your network to know you're looking for a job, share an update from your homepage.
