LinkedIn Made It Easier for Your Employees to Job Hunt Behind Your Back

LinkedIn just launched a new service for job hunters. It’s called Open Candidates. LinkedIn describes it like this:

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. You can specify the types of companies and roles you are most interested in and be easily found by the hundreds of thousands of recruiters who use LinkedIn to find great professional talent.

It’s a nice tool for job seekers because it eliminates the need to change your headingto something like “Experienced HR Professional Seeking New Opportunities.” It allows you to signal your availability and allows recruiters to focus their efforts on people who are actively seeking new jobs.

  1. A recruiter in one company can call one of the 25 or so recruiters/agency he or she knows and find out who in there company is looking for a new job. Agree it will be easier for recruiters to focus on job seekers, but it is certainly not confidential.

  2. Its funny because I am in recruiting and realized that all my colleagues , other recruiters could probably see that in my profile if i changed it … No not much help for me should I decide to start searching!
