Should you Link to LinkedIN?

When you are posting in the Seeking a position or responding to a help wanted ad, should you post your LinkedIn url?

Not that I would ever do that....

I voted for private message because the situation could vary so much. Sometimes you don't want it out there that you're looking.

Great point. Note to my employer, I'm not looking.. unless someone is waving a bundle of $$$ in front of me.

Everyone is going to look at your LinkedIn page now. You should update it to show the exact size of bundle they should wave at you lol
