Here’s what happened:
New Notification (distant acquaintance): “Hi Judy! Long time no see. I’m looking for a new job, thought maybe you knew of an opening at the Skip Level.” Great! Let me do your job search for you!
New Notification (some random guy): “Judy, Thanks for your interest & being part of my LinkedIn network. Glad to connect to fine people like you seem to be ! I hope be able to add value to each other. It’s a pleasure to stay in touch and to be friend. Let me know if there is anything I can ever do for you.” Sure, I will definitely let you know if there is anything you can ever do for me.
New Notification (another random guy): “Judy! You were highly recommended as a great source or candidate now or in the future. HS has been retained to recruit 4 High Potential VP Generalist for roles.” WTF is this guy talking about?
Repeat the above ad nauseum.
THAT’s why I don’t have a LinkedIN account (anymore).
