To begin, click Me in the top right corner of your homepage.

Under job seeking preferences, you will be able to edit your job application settings, sharing your profile after clicking apply, commute preferences, and more.

To begin changing your settings, click Job application settings.

Here you will be able to save and manage your resume and answers, manage your resumes, and save Self-ID information.

To delete or download a resume saved, click the three small dots next to your resume document.

Click Delete or Download. You can also upload a resume here so it’s handy for future jobs you apply to!

Click Back to return back to the Job settings page.

The next setting allows you to choose whether or not you share your profile with the job poster when you apply to a job. Click the white circle to toggle yes or no.

You can also set your Commute preferences to get job recommendations based off of how far you’re willing to travel. 

The Commute Preferences page allows you to set how far you want to travel based on where you live, how you commute, time, and when you start! Fill this page out if important to you.

Click back to return to your settings.

Signal to recruiters at companies that you’ve created job alerts for that you’re interested in working for them. Click the white circle to toggle yes or no. You can also manage your job alerts here, which allows you to edit and change any saved job searches. To manage, click Manage job alerts.

The last setting allows you to manage any job applications where your information is being stored after being created or added by you while applying to jobs on LinkedIn. If it is being stored, it will show up here. That’s it, you’re done!
