I publish a job on LinkedIn in which the optional Profile Description field has been populated. The job is published on LinkedIn job board, but the Profile Description field is missing from the job.

LinkedIn no longer processes the content of skillsDescription field.


LinkedIn Team informed Recruiting Posting that they do have performed some changes in their system on the Profile Description field, which is not getting picked up anymore from our feed by their services.

They informed Recruiting Posting Product Team that they are currently working on a fix for the Profile Description to be published again.

To keep a check on this fix, please monitor this KBA that we will update as soon as the situation is back to normal.
