If you’ve ever been on the job hunt, you know that no matter how many jobs you apply for or how many jobs you need, there will always be some roles that stand out to you more than others. LinkedIn’s new feature lets you pitch your dream job to an employer.

Four months ago, LinkedIn announced that it was releasing a “Top Choice” feature that would allow applicants to let hirers know that the role they’re applying for is their “Top Choice” or the one they really want.

This week, LinkedIn is finally rolling out its new feature to all LinkedIn Premium subscribers, moving away from its initial testing period, according to Report.

“Premium customers who apply to LinkedIn job postings using Top Choice Jobs are on average 43% more likely to receive a message back from a recruiter,” said Ora Levitt, senior director of product management at LinkedIn.

To enable this feature, all applicants with a LinkedIn Premium subscription must toggle the checkmark that says “Top Choice” under the “Upload Resume” option in LinkedIn’s “Easy Apply” option.

Below the checkmark is a field for users to explain why that toll is their top choice which will be shared with the employer.

To prevent users from using “Top Choice” for every application, LinkedIn has a limit on how often users can take advantage of the button, three times a month.
