  4. On clicking the Settings, a new page will load having four options: 1. Communications and Privacy 2. Account 3. Job Preferences and 4. Block Companies
  5. You have to select the 1st option “Communications and Privacy” which is already the loaded page by default.
  6. Select any one of the two options – “Immediately looking for job” or “Not actively looking but open for opportunities”.
  7. Click on the “Customize” button.
  8. You will find the section “Communication from Recruiters” under which there will be a field “Job opportunities and messages from recruiters” with dropdown option. From the dropdown, select “No email”.
