How LinkedIn Is Thwarting Your Job Search

I recently transitioned from a staff position at Next Avenue to a freelance role and began searching for a new executive-level job. One of the many things I did to boost my chances of success was to edit the field just below my name in my LinkedIn profile to remove mention of any specific employer and to more precisely convey the services and expertise I offer.

Little did I know that this small change would sabotage my job hunting efforts: Just after I tinkered with the words in the upper field, LinkedIn sent out an automated email message to the 1,000+ members of my network encouraging them to “Congratulate Donna Sapolin on the new job” and also slammed their LinkedIn activity feeds with a “Say congrats on the new job!” message above my name and photo.
