In between jobs? Stay away from “Looking for a new opportunity” and similar phrases on your
LinkedIn profile (unless you are a fresh grad)! One common misconception is that those who are between jobs should say so on their LinkedIN profiles but this can actually work against you! Noting you're unemployed is unnecessary because recruiters will contact you anyway. If you fit the requirements, they will message you regardless. Stating that you’re out of job can actually harm your chances of being recruited because of the negative bias around unemployment. Leave your most recent position up on your profile! It’s not likely that your previous employer will reach out to you and ask you to remove it. If they do, be sure to comply, otherwise just leave the position up as current while you hunt for a new job!
