My employer is a consulting company(similar to Deloitte, Accenture etc..) and we work with big clients. Can I include client names on my LinkedIn to attract attention from recruiters?

      Yes he can. I have done that too. OP just needs to make sure he isnt falsifying anything. I just say “worked as a consultant for client X”

      Sorry to disagree, but you have to anonymise, so it’s “banking client” not named client

    Hard to say without knowing the specific company, but a general rule of thumb I have heard is to only to talk about information that is already public. Basically, check Google news for the two company's and see if you can find anything (Also check your company's public press page). I know some consulting company's will come down hard on leaking client relationships.

    I’m not sure what type of consulting you do but where I am at we never disclose client names on LinkedIn or bios unless it is already public information. Our clients rely on us for confidentiality.

    Ever heard of an NDA? No you don't have permission to share unless you got specific client permission to share details of the work, and client name.

    If a recruiter isn’t attracted by client’s industry, then either they aren’t looking for that experience or don’t know how to hire candidates with consulting background. If latter, educate them. Unlikely.

    Please no, it makes it look like you worked full time there which is not the case
