Hi Monique --

I just went through my archives to look at my "candidates like you" emails, and noticed something interesting. In my case, the titles that aren't tech writer and the like all seem to be "Sponsored."

A typical email has a Sponsored non-writer job (e.g., Associate Systems Engineer, Tech Support Lead, Project Manager, "Entry Writer/Customs Coordinator"), followed by a handful of local tech writer/senior tech writer/principle (sic) writer jobs, then maybe followed by a handful of non-local tech writer jobs. Only the non-writer job -- in several instances -- is "Sponsored."

I can only guess what that means, but wanted to offer that data point.

Sharon

Well, I reactivated the email from the custom alerts that I already had, and the result of those searches is what I expect: relevant results that match the alerts' criteria.

But what seems totally separate from the email for specific alerts is that LinkedIn is still sending me "Monique: <List of several companies> are looking for candidates like you" daily email messages where the majority of the posts are for lead engineering, account manager, and analyst sorts of jobs.

**** Any idea what LinkedIn settings control this "looking for candidates like you" email? I can't find anything beyond choosing "Daily Emails" or "Periodic Emails" in the Jobs and opportunities > Details > Email alerts about jobs you may be interested in...

And not likely related, but just last week I started noticing that when I looked at my LinkedIn page, there were messages in my LinkedIn inbox that hadn't been forwarded to my email account! I found that LinkedIn's profile settings had changed on me, and now I was receiving email on the "Recommended" delivery schedule, not "Individual Emails" as I'd previously selected. I understand LinkedIn wanting us to do more of our activity within their app/website itself vs. our personal email Inboxâthis way they get more eyeballs on their advertising. (A related change they've made is to send only part of the message in email, forcing me to view the full message on the LinkedIn site. And then if I reply from the LinkedIn app/website, I cannot include my personal email address in order to keep a copy in my personal email Inbox. Again, annoying, but understandable from their
perspective.) But changing things on the backend and leaving it to us users to discover is rather user-unfriendly.
