Interesting. I wonder how much of a drop in applicants that gives you. I wouldn't have bothered applying for a job with a company that required a linkedin account.

Conversely, the fact that you don't have a LinkedIn account is a red flag to many employers potentially looking to hire you.

Clearly, it's not enough of one to stop them from reaching out to me and asking if I'm looking for work.

Actually applicants went up quite a bit (well over 100%). My guess is that this is probably from the fact that it takes two clicks to apply.

Notice any difference in the quality of applicants? Subjective I know, but curious nonetheless.
