Just out of curiosity. As an Microsoft /LinkedIn employee, do you avoid using LinkedIn for seeking new jobs? What if recruiters reach out to you on LinkedIn? I would imagine your managers be fully aware if you were doing so.

    This is a weird question. Does Facebook allow employees to see the private transactions that happen on the Facebook platform?

      No engineers can’t unless we want to get fired, but I’m sure HR people are watching what engineers do on Facebook.

      Lol HR definitely is not watching, outside of a specific investigation

    We don't monitor/read employee's (or anybody's) LinkedIn usage.

    If an employee wants to leave, they are free to do so. It would be nice that if they did, they used LinkedIn. It would mean our product is working.

    Why would I not use the best job resource available to everyone else when I am looking for myself?

    We get a discount on LinkedIn Premium. I guess that includes some stuff unrelated to job searching, but still.

    I use my iCloud email address in my applications to new jobs. Am I in trouble?

    Yes of course. Even HR would encourage it.
