Here’s how you can look for a job on LinkedIn without your present employer knowing about it

1. Open Candidates: LinkedIn’s ‘Open Candidates’ feature tells recruiters that you can open for a job switch and the site says “we got you covered”.


2. You can secretly tell recruiters that you are looking for a job and click on the tab ‘Let Recruiters Know You’re Open’.

3. If you have filled half of the information, don’t worry. Recruiters will go through the information provided by you and contact you if they think you fit the bill.
