Has anyone here ever set their linked in to “open to finding a new job” and got busted by their current firm? Is doing that a risky click?

If you’re a Partner or Partnership track associate, then that is sketch. If you are in a position that otherwise lacks equity, I feel like that setting should always be on.

Huge risk!! They all see it. Or other hiring firms see it and inquire with your bosses (because everyone knows everyone)

Yes. I was a partner at my last firm and a very good friend of mine was hiring. He called me about one of our associates found on there.

I toggle on and off the open to recruiters option periodically, I don’t use the public setting that shows in your profile photo.

Echoing the other comments that you shouldn’t turn on the “open to work” badge unless you want to be looking for work. This is like activating your Tinder profile while in a relationship and assuming you won’t get caught because your SO doesn’t have it on their phone.

It’s not a question of owing anything, it’s about getting caught and fired. I can think of several occasions off the top of my head where associates were fired when the partner found out they were looking for a new job.

I switched firms this year to a boutique (~15 attys) that pays out sizable year end bonuses (I was told during the hiring process at least 75% of our base salary for associates). The year is winding down and no one is talking about timing, amounts, etc. My self-eval was due yesterday and I’ve tried to politely ask about “expectations” in that context with other associates but no one is spilling the tea. Is there an industry standard timing for this? Am I being too polite?
