LinkedIn profile

linkedin-400850__180Some people include date of birth and marital status in their LinkedIn profiles. If you are searching for work and using LinkedIn as a tool in your search, including these details provides an employer or recruiter with the opportunity to discriminate against you, albeit, not obviously. Not all of the items listed in the LinkedIn profile are compulsory requirements, so just ask yourself; will providing this information help my search or potentially work against me?
