Your LinkedIn profile is more like a public résumé. Recruiters from companies are using LinkedIn to find prospective employees and it is therefore important, especially when you are seeking a new job, that you keep your LinkedIn profile updated and active.

Don’t Let The Boss Know That You’re Updating LinkedIn

When you add or edit any field in your LinkedIn profile – say your education or current role – that change is instantly broadcasted to your entire LinkedIn network. See this page to know who all have recently updated their Linked Profiles in your network.

This can be a problem when the boss is also on LinkedIn and you are connected with him or her. If you would therefore not like your present employer to know that you are updating your Linked profile, open the Activity Broadcast option and turn it off (uncheck the box). Simple!
