Currently I'm employed in a position which I could stay in for a while. However, I'm not in love with it and would leave for the right opportunity. As such, I don't mind receiving contacts for possible jobs via LinkedIn, but I don't want to advertise myself as "seeking a new opportunity" either.
Recently I have received - via my LinkedIn profile - some invitations from recruiters to apply for positions they are trying to fill. While my skills are applicable and it is somewhat flattering to be noticed, nearly all these positions are in an industry which I avoid for ethical reasons. Does anyone know of a way to discreetly show this in my LinkedIn profile?
Some examples to make this clearer:
- A fundraiser who works for a charity receiving requests to apply for a job with a political organization to which he or she is opposed.
- A devout member of a religion being asked to work for a drastically different religious group (think a Roman Catholic nun working for a Satanic group).
- A pacifist being asked to work in a military setting.
- An environmentalist working for a major polluter.
