Maybe Ive just been spending too much time on LinkedIn.

What say you, r3v?
LinkedIn is the worst these days. Its nothing but people pumping their own tires about how good of humans they are. Honestly, all I see there these days are people solely doing things so they can brag about it to their LinkedIn network.

We get it, you like reposting inspirational speeches from 'entrepreneurs' whose sole job is to do inspirational speeches on how their life is so much better than yours. Now piss off and go do some actual work.

End rant.

Youre certainly not wrong. Im sick of all of that and have continued to unfollowed appropriately. But due to the nature of my job, I do need to use the site, just gotta filter out all of the

Steve jobs said a thing 15yrs ago, and you should live by it bullshit

Or frickin recruiters.

So tired of wasting time with them, and 9 out of 10 times theyre trying to fit a square peg in a round hole.

Whats worse is I get multiple recruiting agencies trying to hire for the same company. No, Im not going to commute to Intel..

The messages recruiters send me...my god.

My favorite to date was

Subject: Youre a wizard Harry...

First line: A finance wizard!

Man, Id kick my own ass if I sent that to someone.

Unreal the amount of crap I get from LinkedIn. This one is at least memorable and worthy of a self-ass-kicking.


IDK about y'all, but I remember the days when it was waaaaaaay more job seekers than recruiters. I was in b-school through the dotcom crash and 9/11, graduated into a slow-ass labor market and took years to catch up. Labor market is extremely tight right now, wages going up, etc. It's stupid hard to find good people. It won't always be like this so take advantage while you can. No excuses for lame Successories(TM) quotes, though.


(Well that makes me feel old.)


ALL of that said I think a career thread (if there isn't one already) makes sense for R3v'ers.
