I am looking for a job. Should I put this in my Linkedin name / status?

Answered by Meeta Malhotra

Linkedin is the best way to put your resume out there without actually saying you are job-hunting. This is a personal opinion, but no one wants someone who no one else wants and saying you want a job in your status smacks of desperation. My advice would be to focus on creating a compelling profile, building a strong network, making contributions that showcase your skill-set. If you are job-hunting, contact a headhunter.
