See the instructions below. Additionally, you can get a refund if you have already paid for jobseeker upgraded service. Make sure that you have your military service somewhere in your LinkedIn profile as they verify the service.
This membership gives you the full unrestricted view of profiles as well as a full list of who has viewed yours.
Upon joining this specific group, the Military member/Veteran will AUTOMATICALLY be enrolled for 12 months in the “Job Seekers” level of membership.
I understand this to mean; that no longer will a credit card be required to activate membership. Yet, LinkedIn still asks to have your Military service clearly denoted in your LinkedIn profile.
