Make Your Job Search Activity on LinkedIn Private

LinkedIn is a social network for professionals, and many use it to search for their next job.

You may want to hide your job search activity, though, if you are currently in a job and don't want your current employer to know that you're looking elsewhere.

Thankfully, LinkedIn allows you to hide your activities related to the job search easily by following a few simple steps:

    ■Log on to your PC.
    ■Go to the LinkedIn website by typing in the address bar and pressing Enter.
    ■Provide your email address and password in the Email address and Password fields respectively and click Sign In.

    ■On the Home page, hover the mouse over the Account & Settings icon (icon with the profile picture) at the top-right corner.
    ■From the expanded Account & Settings list, click the Manage link representing the Privacy & Settings option.

    ■On the next page, under the lower section, make sure that you are on the Profile tab.
    ■Once ensured, under the Privacy Control section, click the Turn on/off your activity broadcasts link.

    ■When the Activity Broadcasts box appears, uncheck the Let people know when you…… checkbox.
    ■Once done, click Save changes to apply the changes in order to hide your job search activities on LinkedIn.
