How to remove open to work on LinkedIn. If you already have a job and want to take a break, you can easily disable the open-to-work features on LinkedIn. In this tutorial, I’ll walk you through the entire process step by step. So, without further ado, let us begin.
How to Remove ‘Open to Work’ on LinkedIn
The tutorial works on both your mobile device and your computer. Check that you have the LinkedIn app installed on your smartphone. You can get it from the Google and Apple app stores.

‣ Open a linked app on your smartphone
‣ Tap on your profile picture in the top left corner
‣ Now tap on the view profile
‣ Now tap on the edit button located in the Open to work section. For reference, you can view the video above for reference.

‣ Once you are in, click on the delete button at the bottom down below
Why Should You Turn the Feature Off?
Linked is a job search and networking platform that helps you find work and connect with others. LinkedIn is a popular platform for recruiters to hire candidates directly from the app.
Add “open to work” to your LinkedIn profile to notify recruiters you are looking for work. You can use this feature to indicate that you are looking for work.
Even though you have complete control over this decision, it is still recommended that you keep the feature enabled, albeit by switching it to something else, such as the ‘I’m open to remote work’ option or, if you aren’t, simply keeping the ‘Flexible, I’m casually browsing’ feature enabled.
When you need work and begin looking for it, recruiters will consider the fact that your LinkedIn account has been active; that you’ve been out and about looking for work. It makes a favourable impression on you.
Furthermore, if you remove the feature entirely… There’s nothing wrong with that in and of itself, though it may seem strange to some recruiters given LinkedIn’s primary focus on jobs.
So, whatever job preference you end up setting for your profile (or not), make sure it reflects positively on your overall profile in terms of job hunts.

How to Enable Open to Work on LinkedIn
If you want to add this frame to your profile, you can do it in two easy steps.
We’ll be with you every step of the way to make sure everything goes well.
1. Open LinkedIn and Go to Your Profile
Log in with your personal profile, since this option doesn’t work for businesses.
2. Click on ‘Open to…’
This button is under your profile picture and your contact details.
3. Click on ‘Finding a New Job’
This is your opportunity to demonstrate that you are actively looking for work. This is a signal to other LinkedIn members, as well as businesses and active users who work as recruiters.
When you click on it, LinkedIn will open a pop-up window where you can modify your job search preferences.
What information can you add?
‣ The job you want and the opportunities you’re looking for. Start writing and the platform will suggest various related options.
‣ The location of the job you’re looking for. LinkedIn offers various locations by default, but you can type whatever you like or click the ‘remote work’ box in ‘Finding a new job.
‣ Start date. Select immediately or flexibly, biding your time for the right offer.
‣ The type of job you’re looking for. Full-time, contract, part-time, work experience, or temporary. Ideal for selecting the type of contract you’re looking for.
Lastly, select who can see your Open to Work on LinkedIn badge: anyone on LinkedIn or just recruitment specialists.
4. Click on ‘Add’
After you’ve made your changes, click ‘Save.’ If you choose to notify any LinkedIn user, you will be advised to write a post informing your community of your new status.
When you’re done, your page will look the same as before, but there will be a green tag on your profile photo with the hashtag #opentowork.
