Job scams have been in teh game for a long time, and with the increase in social media users all over the globe, these scams have grown at a serious pace. Most of the scammers publish luring job posts on social media platforms to woo people. However, LinkedIn, one of the most powerful job-related social media platforms, has come up with something new to safeguard its users and make sure they don’t fall for such kinds of traps.

LinkedIn has started helping people on the journey of going through jobs the same. The jobs that will be posted on LinkedIn are supposed to be verified. These verification tags on LinkedIn will display all the important information about the job posters along with company details. It has been mentioned in the official blog post of LinkedIn that the platform will now start showing verified information related to the job poster and the company.

How will it affect job seekers and job posters?

This will be of great help for the job seekers as they will be able to differentiate between verified and unverified jobs on their own. All the verified jobs on the platform will get the information along with affiliation with the official company page, verified workplace or work email, or their government ID verified via CLEAR. This will help land decent jobs instead of the scams going on in the market related to the same. The best part about the whole scenario is that LinkedIn has decided to keep all the verification tools free.

Not only this, but Linked has also started sending Message-warning to make sure that if any users get high-risk content, then they are alerted firsthand about the same. For example, if a message on LinkedIn from someone is asking you to take the conversation on any other platform, then you will get a warning for it. Apart from that, you will also have the authority to report the content immediately. A major highlight regarding this feature is that the sender will not even know that something like this has happened.
