Did you know that an email address is visible on someone’s LinkedIn profile if you are directly connected to them? This is a huge advantage to a job seeker because if you can connect with someone on LinkedIn, you can then email them directly. If someone doesn’t check their LinkedIn mailbox often, having the ability to email them directly gives you a better chance that your message will be seen.
“The primary email address you’ve registered with LinkedIn is only visible on your profile to your direct connections on LinkedIn, with one exception. If a person who already knows your email address uploads or syncs their email contacts to LinkedIn, they’ll see it on your profile since they already have it.
Besides your direct connections, we will not share your email address or other contact information with another member unless both of you choose to contact one another.”
So if you’re looking for a creative way to get in front of someone, see if you can connect with them so you can have access to their email address.
