People were skeptical when LinkedIn added the #OpenToWork feature a few years Linkedin Professional Social Network on iPhone 4 LinkedIn can help you land a job. This is one strategy you need to use.GETTY ago. Many job hunters worried that this tag surrounding their profile gave off an β€œI’m desperate” vibe. At that time, recruiters said it had no effect on them and that they ignored it. Fast forward to now. Things have changed a great deal because of the labor shortage. As we start seeing more layoffs and many people quietly job hunting, more people have been using this tag. But is there a better way to get recruiters’ attention without telling the universe you are job hunting?

My input:

Matthew Warzel, president of MJW Careers, noted that whether or not to use this feature is a personal decision involving your comfort level with publicly declaring that you are looking for a new job. Some job seekers may prefer to keep their job search private.

I also recommended you use the #OpenToWork tag but designate it so only recruiters can see it. Keep in mind this is only one passive way to job hunt. It’s not a one-and-done approach.
