You will see your jobs listed there. Please note that it may take up to 24 hours for a new job posting to appear on LinkedIn.

❓ There are more applicants in LinkedIn than in Dover. Why is that?

LinkedIn tracks Apply clicks, not application submissions. If the number of applicants on LinkedIn is higher than the number you see in Dover, this likely means that applicants are clicking to apply but do not end up submitting their application. It is normal for there to be drop-off at this stage of the application process due to various reasons.
