One of those supposedly LinkedIn Professionals messaged me saying I need more followers/connections to get a job. She can help me get more and rebuild my profile. Smh

Like, listen woman, I have 100+ connections, employed and well paid and guess what,.... I didn’t even have 50 followers/connections when I got my first job offer. The only real connection you need is IRL not some online virtual connections you don’t even know sending you “connections to connect” requests. Stupid a$$.

    I don't see the point in creating a LinkedIn profile anyway.

    @kescherRant Only reason I have it - we had previous clients that needed an API of theirs and... I needed an account to manage it.

    Besides that... I get 15+ connections/day from HR's and... When they try to offer me a job, I just respond with:
    Are you keen on buying me out? My current work pays me X amount, will you increase that? Also, any benefits of joining your company?

    @kescherRant I feel you. You know that kind of nonsense they fill your mind with in school, yeah. But ever since I created it, I just left it as it is. And some companies you apply to want a link to your profile. Oh well. 🤷🏽‍♂️

    @kescherRant I don't think there's any good reason to, honestly.
