Can people stop treating LinkedIn to feed their cravings for self recognition? Sure you met a homeless person who turned out to be an unemployed veteran, hungry, LGBTQ, but won't accept money and you invited him to interview and is a great performer. Or how you are a HR recruiter and why it hurt your feeling when someone ghosted you after giving you verbal acceptance because they found a better offer, or how you are a genius to share management lessons based on movie clips? Get therapy! EOR

On one hand I see your argument as valid OP but on the other hand if you don’t stand up for your achievements who will? Virtue signaling is awful though

My issue is only with virtue signaling. Like if I see someone in need on the street and I help them when I can, I don't have to post it on LinkedIn just so other people can give pity likes to make myself feel better about it. Helping others is what humans should do without expectation of any reward. It's rhe modern version of posting pictures with African kids on your dating profile when some people use to go to Africa for supposed charity but more so that they can boast about it and it made some people look cool.

I agree with this but why does it bother you so much? LinkedIn was bound to go down that path; networking tech is focused on building a community and communities are built when people share and relate.

It's a professional platform and posts like these flood the feed and you might miss something useful. For example - if I post about what I did (a nice gesture towards other) and only share it to make others like the post but has no value to others, it's useless to me. I would rather have people share professional news / industry articles or even request for help that matter to people. Posts about how people just behave and should behave but feel as if they deserve a cookie in the form of likes are pathetic.

Could anyone please tell me about the recruitment process for BCGDV (BCG Digital Ventures) ? I passed the 1st round and have a 2nd round with a Lead but unsure if there is a case study. Asked my HR coordinator who said it will be 45mins on past experience and competencies but no need to prepare. Still not sure about case studies and if yes, what type? Thank you

Working with an (external) headhunter for a role, and just found out they want me to proceed to the second round of interviews.

Does it look bad to go back on my word and drop out of the process now?

Looking for advice. I’m currently interviewing for a position that pays $20k more than I make now. It seems like the job would not be giving me much for my portfolio and may have some work/life balance issues (but tbh what agency doesn’t). I’ve got piles of student loan debt. I’m only in year 2 of my career. Do I take this job for a year, deal with the downsides, pay off a huge chunk of my debt, then get back to fun stuff? Or will it hurt my career to have a portfolio gap?
