Job seeker thinks that they have optimized their LinkedIn profiles and now they will start getting job opportunities.

Your Linkedin profile is not getting any consideration by recruiters.

You must be thinking what the problem with your profile is?

Optimizing your profile is not going to solve this problem solely.

Here, I am going to show you which settings need to do to get noticed by the right people on Linkedin.
