How To Let Recruiters Know You’re Open To Opportunities – Without Telling Your Boss!
LinkedIn has just introduced a powerful new feature and you might not be aware about it. No worries, that’s all the purpose of this article: telling you how you can use it, and why you have to!
This feature called “Open Candidates” is a way to signal that you’re open to being headhunted for a new role, without letting your boss know.
Until now, the only way to announce to your LinkedIn network that you were looking for a job was to simply write it the headline of your profile. It’s hard for recruiters to miss, but it’s a huge warning sign to your company that you’re considering a change.
How Does “Open Candidates” work?
Open Candidates makes it simpler to connect with your next role by privately signaling to recruiters that you’re open to new opportunities. You can even specify the kind of companies and roles you are most interested in and be found by the hundreds of thousands of recruiters and headhunters who use LinkedIn to find great talent like yourself.
Once you identify yourself as an open candidate in LinkedIn, you’ll appear in recruiters’ LinkedIn searches, even if nothing else about your profile shows you’re looking keen to explore new challenges.
