Note:  I’m not endorsing this service since I do not know the results people have gotten from it, but it’s important to know it exists and is an option for enhancing your online job search. My sense is that the service is most useful for someone contacting recruiters and hiring managers in a particular field.  I encourage you to research the service to determine whether it is right for you.

If you are a LinkedIn member and you are looking for a job, you might do well to subscribe to LinkedIn’s Job Seeker Premium Account service. For just $29.99/month, you get organizational tools and direct access to recruiters that you do not get with a regular LinkedIn account. You will also be featured as a job seeker to help you get noticed in the big LinkedIn pool.

There are more expensive versions of this service as well. If it works, I hope you won’t have to subscribe for more than 2 or 3 months. Ideally, you’ll get your value back a hundred fold and think that the LinkedIn Job Seeker Premium account was worth it.

For more information see LinkedIn Job Seeker Premium on the LinkedIn site.

Of course, it won’t help to get the attention of recruiters and hiring managers if your LinkedIn profile is not up to par.  The Essay Expert’s LinkedIn Profile Services will help you ensure that your LinkedIn image makes the right impression.  I recommend working on your profile first, and then signing up for the premium service if you’re interested.

If anyone has used this service and has results to report, please share them in the comments.  I’d love to know whether you have found value from upgrading.


  1. All of the research I have seen thus far indicates that it won’t help *much*. My thought is if you have the money to spend, why not? Showing up as a featured listing could give you an edge. If you’re budgeting and looking for work because finances are tight, however, I’d save that money and keep using the free services.
