New LinkedIn Feature Can Get You Hired Faster

The folks at LinkedIn have a new feature every job seeker should know about. Open Candidates is a new feature that makes it easier to connect with your dream job by privately signaling to recruiters that you’re open to new job opportunities. 

According to their announcement, "To enable the feature, simply turn sharing “On” and fill in some brief information about the types of roles you are interested in. Who among us hasn’t, at some point, tried to find work without our boss finding out? Now, you can privately indicate to recruiters on LinkedIn without worrying. We will hide the Open Candidates signal from recruiters at your company or affiliated company recruiters."

The feature is now available in the U.S, U.K., Canada and Australia
