Hi everyone, I've had people ask me about the green "open to work" photo frame on LinkedIn and whether I think they should use it. I have mixed feelings but personally, I don't like it.

Most recruiters, especially those at larger companies, will have "LinkedIn Recruiter" accounts that allow them to search based on whether someone is open to opportunities via their profile settings. So mostly, the green frame is window dressing.

I wrote a blog post that goes into more detail about the photo frame and show you where to change your settings. Please let me know if you have any questions!
