Now a #Microsoft division, #LinkedIn has rolled out silent changes that I will continue to share with you, just to stay ahead of the curve.

Let’s mute that chatter!

Here’s the easy fix: adjacent to your LinkedIn photo icon located in the far right top menu bar, you adjust your preferences and voila, you’re done.

You can manage these updates directly from the Notifications tab to determine which types of notifications you’d like to receive, shown above.

Here are your options (4)

  1. Mute a notification – stop receiving updates on a particular post on your feed; you may also disable future updates on that thread.
  2. Delete a notification – removes the notification from your notifications tab.
  3. Unfollow a notification – stop receiving updates from that connection including likes on updates, work anniversaries, job changes. Consider the connection and their relative importance to your network’s feed. You can always turn it back on, if you’d like.
  4. Turn off notifications completely – Stop receiving a certain type of notification, such as likes or job changes or work anniversaries, from the people you’re following.

Note: You may not see all of these options depending on the type of notification you’re managing. For example, muting a notification is only available for posts on your feed.

How many of you are annoyed or irritated with this feature?

Staying too long or complacent in your position but don’t know how to conduct a 21st century job search? Today, you were employed, but tomorrow you’re walking out with a severance package (or not even that?). I work with senior executives and mid-career professionals who wish to create a compelling, persuasive, optimized collection of documents: key-word rich LinkedIn profiles, coaching on job search strategies and ATS-compliant resumes, revamping your outdated version. As a former CMO and Fortune 500 executive, I earn trust from my clients by delivering value and results that exceed expectation. Let’s improve your odds and avoid rejection by ruthless resume bots. ATS is both a science and an art, and I’ve nailed it, helping hundreds and I can help you too. “I was told by a recruiter that my resume was an embarrassment and undersold my career achievements. I worked with D.B Wienke who totally impressed me with the top-notch results she obtained to showcase my achievements.” Matt, VP Procurement at a $1B privately-held company. Resume bots known as Applicant Tracking Systems (ATS) software are sorting, scoring and decisioning your resume based upon machine learning and Artificial Intelligence (A.I) developed to create an unfair advantage to quickly find the lucky 3 or 4 candidates out of 300 applicants. How? Your resume and your chosen job posting must contain the same keywords– 80% matching is the threshold. While you may be perfectly qualified, your resume may be rejected at the gate because it’s not ATS-compliant. Even LinkedIn uses ATS when using “Easy Apply.” Here’s the truth: 1. 97% of Fortune 500 companies use ATS software in their recruitment processes 2. 87% of recruiters use LinkedIn specifically to find candidates for jobs. 3. 94% of recruiters use LinkedIn to vet job candidates. Avert the frustration and depend upon my expert knowledge to hasten your desired outcome. Let's schedule a private consultation:
