Speaking of LinkedIn, I noticed that it doesn't federate also.
Morever, some months ago I saw somewhere that ActivityPub could also be
used to function like a federated job employement network, so I assume
that if this would be true, people who use an ActivityPub account could
also apply to the job positions posted through ActivityPub.
Personally, I tend to avoid registering at thousands of websites, I like
to do some exercise by walking or running to the job employement centers
that the government maintains --- because these already have my
"registry" anyways, my "worker card" --- or those in which I don't have
to touch a web form nor an app in order to join the job opennings. In
all cases I am also OK if I have to send an email, but only if I can do
so using the standard email procedures, not some web form. It is true
however that the country were I live (Brazil) seens to be neglecting my
potential as a citizen who cares for the freedoms of the software that
the very end/novice user uses.
As Stallman once said, we don't have to go to the street make faces in
order to get a living, we can do other stuff not related to technology,
and this is also a thing I'm doing, I'm picking up any open position
which doesn't require prior experience.
