  1. Hi Jeff, i am curious if you could update this insightful post regarding the use and results of LinkedIn’s Easy Apply button. i ask as ive heard that the formatting can be inconsistent and even missing critical data. thanks!

  2. I don’t know about formatting issues. I do know that if you use your profile, you are not tailoring your application to the job. Thus like the broken watch that is right twice a day or the same generic resume sent to every job, you won’t get the best results because it is generic. DON’T DO IT! And how about a nice thumbs up for the quick response? 🙂
