There comes a time in every professional鈥檚 life where it鈥檚 time to move on from a job. But if you abide by the old adage 鈥淒on鈥檛 leave your job until you鈥檝e got a new one lined up,鈥 you鈥檙e bound to encounter that awkward period of time when you鈥檙e actively seeking another job while showing up for your current one. And it becomes even more awkward when your boss knows you鈥檙e trying to leave. Luckily, LinkedIn has a new feature that will let you actively seek jobs on the sly.

The service, called 鈥淥pen Candidates,鈥 will let you set an alert that only premium job recruiters will be able to see. These recruiters will basically be notified that you鈥檙e on the market and looking for a job, but you鈥檙e still at your old one. Set it and then just watch the potential job offers roll in 鈥 nobody needs to know until you鈥檙e already set up at your next job.

The professional networking site also announced two more updates today, mostly targeted to help recruiters make their jobs easier聽鈥 which should translate to an easier job hunt for all of us.
