We reported that Microsoft’s LinkedIn will soon be able to let users add services they provide. This was to help freelancers find new clients on LinkedIn. The company is also working on another similar feature which will be for everyone and not just freelancers.
Reverse engineer Jane Manchun Wong posted a screenshot which suggests that the professional network is working on a feature that will let job seekers signal their interest to recruiters on Android. This will only be applied for companies that you have created job alerts for.

The feature will help you highlight the things you are most interested in which will eventually help companies to learn more about your interests without even visiting your profile. If you’re a company then this will save a lot of time. However, your privacy might be at stake if you turn on the feature.
The feature is currently in the testing phase, meaning you’ll have to wait a while to test this feature on your Android phone.
