LinkedIn brings its verification tools to job postings

Posted on

After launching its verification features last month, LinkedIn is now bringing verification to job postings, the company announced Monday. The company will now start showing verifications related to a job post, with verified information about a job poster or their company.

When you see verifications on jobs, it means there’s information that has been verified as authentic by the job poster, LinkedIn, or one of its partners. The verified information shows if the poster is affiliated with an official company page, has verified their corporate email or workplace, or if their government ID has been verified through CLEAR, a secure identity platform.

“We’re showing these verifications to help you gain confidence in your search and give recruiters a chance to build trust with potential candidates,” the company wrote in a blog post. “Job verifications are just rolling out, and as we expand access to our free verification tools, you’ll see even more of the jobs you’re exploring.”

Last month, LinkedIn introduced new ways to verify your identity and where you work. Unlike Twitter and Meta, LinkedIn’s new verification measures don’t include paid subscriptions or blue ticks. At the time, LinkedIn said it believed that verification should be available to everyone, which is why the verification features will be available for free.

Unlike Twitter and Meta, which bundled verification with additional features, LinkedIn chooses to keep its verification features focused on confirming users’ identities in hopes of providing an extra layer of protection when it comes to fake or scam accounts.
