He is looking for a new job. It’s a tough full time job in itself.

But he complains he is not getting traction.

So I looked at his contact info. Uh oh.

He never enabled the public to see his email address on LinkedIn. No emailing possible.

Nor his cellphone number. No texting possible.

Recruiters or hiring managers have hit a brick wall. No communication to him. Has he lost opportunities? You decide.

Should he add his cellphone number and email address for anyone (1st, 2nd, or 3rd level connections) to have access?

His decision. I think it’s a no-brainer yes!

He needed to follow these instructions from the Help Center.

Job seeker or not, check yours too. Now.
