But where else am I going to see everyone copying and pasting the same vague advice on "5 ways to get a raise today!" in order to look like a "thought leader"?

You do realize that social networks show you content based on what you've engaged with in the past, right cryptomitter?

Considering where it is, while some of it will indeed be that, a lot of it is just whatever they're getting paid to push this month

linkedin was actually a pretty cool concept, but just turned into a social feed where its at times amusing to watch folks blow their careers up on.

I do hope someone fills the space and manages to keep it professional.

4,680,000 results just for the term 'bitcoin' on LinkedIn. LinkedIn is nothing but wanna-be 'influencers/entrepreneurs' and cryptobros now.

What's LinkedIn? I live under 3 rocks.

I'm unsure about LinkedIn. The connections I get seem to generally go nowhere, but they've added a lot lately. I wish the site had the newsfeed during my last 3 job searches.

Also, LinkedIn had in-person events?

LinkedIn is a great site for recruiters who refuse to read resumes.

That would mean they'd have to throw some back, and that's less 'candidates' they'd be throwing at companies - are you nuts?

Free pizza delivered on time?

I, too, have been contacted by agents telling me I'm an excellent candidate for a franchise. Apparently I have a degree in fast food.

You're not totally wrong, but I question the reasoning.

I'll never forget the time that I saw someone give a speech a few days after Columbine where he said he "entered 'hate' into a search engine and found (enormous number) of sites dedicated to hate!"

/I was like 12 and I knew that that wasn't how it worked.
