#LinkedIn’s new option: Open Candidates

curveThis blog post is a short one. I have thought about posting something on LinkedIn’s new Open Candidates option. Basically it allows you to self-identify as a job seeker without anyone (your boss and colleagues included!) knowing. It signals to recruiters who subscribe to LinkedIn Recruiter premium service that you have tossed your hat into the “I’ll consider making a change ring.” No one else knows.

This article from Andy Sellers in London says it as best as anyone else, myself included, can. Here it is: https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/linkedins-new-open-candidates-feature-recruitment-andy-sellers?trk=hp-feed-article-title-channel-add.

I hope this helps some of you. Feel free to pass it along.
