Does Amazon tracks LinkedIn profiles with "let recruiter know you're open to opportunities" turned on?
Any insight?

    Change your LinkedIn profile to “I’m looking turned on.”

    I'd be surprised if you even have a desk when you show up for work tomorrow.

      Will having 2 LinkedIn accounts help avoid this?

    In theory, it keeps your current company from seeing that you are looking. The irony of that was not lost on me when I set my status to actively looking last week

    Lol turning it on changes your profile on a Recruiter Account. As a company I dont care if an internal is looking and I dont think management tracks it. From a Recruiter's view when a project is created there are tabs for Matches, More Likely to Respond, Actively Looking. You'll end up on the last tab which is where most recruiters start their searches.

    Linkedin hides that status from your current employer, mean g if they have a recruiter account tied to your company. If they have a separate external recruiter account I guess they could see, but it's hard to imagine that happening.

    What do you mean - Amazon recruiters? It would make sense for any recruiter.
    But you already are at Amazon?
