You are currently viewing What does Company name as “Confidential” mean on Linkedin?

I have always wondered, what is the answer to this ‘confidential’ question.

It could mean any of these things:

1. person is not working currently, does not want to show it

2. person works in a company which he/she does not want to disclose, maybe a secret assignment:)

3. person is freelancing or starting his own work, maybe in stealth mode

Whatever is the answer, it just makes me feel strange why would someone want to play undercover that too in public?

Is this not a paradox by itself?

It’s like telling everyone I am a spy?

Does it not defeat the purpose?

I have seen several people not updating their profile, maybe that is the simplest way to do it.

Each time I see such a profile it just makes me wonder. I start thinking of the psyche of the person doing it. It tells me a lot about the person.

Maybe it also tells me even what I should not be knowing:)

Sometimes WORDS speak louder than actions!

What do you think about this?

How do you view such profiles?

Is there some other reason?

Is there a better way of doing this?
