So I'm starting at a new job in a few weeks. I've quit my previous jobs some time ago so my 'current position' on LinkedIn has been empty for a quite a while, even though I've already settled on a new position.
This has the uneasy result that recruiters think I'm unemployed and are flocking on me like crazy. This makes me want to update my 'current position' with my upcoming job.
My question: what are potential considerations in doing this? Will it come across weird to my new employer? Will it seem unprofessional? Could I seem somehow less employable for having no job for such an amount of time?
Should I feel comfortable doing this?
