How can I keep my job search totally private?
embarking on a private job search, keep these tips in mind:
1) No updates are sent out when you view or apply for a job on
LinkedIn. Status updates or content you post may be seen by your
network or any others viewing your profile.
2) Some of the changes that trigger updates (activity broadcasts)
are: adding a current job position, adding a current school, adding a
new link to a website, recommending someone, following a company, or
adding a connection. You can turn on/off your activity broadcasts and
select who can see your activity feed and connections from the Settings
page. Your “Activity” section will always be visible to you when you
view your own profile.
3) If you have a Premium Career account, joining the Premium Career
Group will not send out an activity broadcast to your network, nor
will the Group icon show on your profile unless the person viewing
your profile is also a Premium Career subscriber.
