Do you make your secondary LinkedIn account obvious?

Last updated by Tiago Araújo [SSW] about 2 years ago.See history

If you’re working with LinkedIn Talent Hub solutions and don’t want to use your primary LinkedIn account, you will need to create a second one. The issue is that the secondary account will show up when people search for your name:

linkedin secondary profile
Figure: Bad example - Bryden Oliver showing twice on LinkedIn Search

Unfortunately there is no way to disable/hide your secondary profile if it is associated with Talent Hub:

linkedin unable hibernate
Figure: LinkedIn doesn’t let you disable/hibernate an account that has a Recruiter License

The only workaround is to make your secondary account more obvious by adding a clear description:

linkedin clear second account
Figure: Good example - Secondary account clearly states that this is a 'Recruitment account' and is not current
