I think we all know LinkedIn has become an essential part of the job hunting/application process.
It’s often easy to see when someone is gearing up for change - the number of connections they have suddenly increases, they join more groups, they have a flurry of recommendations appearing on their profile - all tell-tale signs that they are about to start or are already job hunting; all great news for recruiters who have the tools and knowledge to spot that kind of thing. They will find you if you are what they are looking for. That’s all fine.
However, by limiting your use and interaction with LinkedIn only to times when you’re actively pursuing a move, you could be missing out on its true worth.

Sounds good, doesn’t it!
