Tuesday Tip: Update Your Career Interests and Discover the Right Jobs

October 17, 2017

Finding the right job can sometimes feel like you’re looking for a needle in a haystack. One action you can take to help is to share your career interests, which in turn helps LinkedIn personalize job recommendations for you. Using the Career Interests dashboard, you can set your career interests by location, company size, industry, and the job titles you’re interested in pursuing. Here you can also turn on Open Candidates to privately signal you’re open to a new opportunity — in fact, this can help you show up 2x more in searches by recruiters, and ensure they’re seeing the types of roles you really want.

You can access your career interests directly from the dashboard on your LinkedIn Profile, or from the Jobs tab. A few quick adjustments to your career interests may be all that’s needed to help you find the way in to your next great opportunity.
