How long do you spend on those? Shouldn't take that long...

Huge waste of time. No one reads them, no one cares what they say. So many times I've wondered if I could get away with writing something totally ridiculous because I know no one is reading them.

Self reviews are the worst, honestly

I agree, hundred percent. Self-reviews are somehow outdated. Do they even read those?

Hey friends, I've been in sales for over ten years in retail/ hospitality.

I'm focusing my efforts to make a switch into tech sales and id like to work for AWS.

Does anyone here use LinkedIn for prospecting, and have success with it? I have Premium, and I send dozens of messages per week, and if I’m lucky one person will respond. And most of the people I message work for companies that are already purchasing from us, but there’s no business relationship. Super frustrating.

The other question is: how many of you receive unsolicited messages on LinkedIn and just ignore them?


Sorry to waste a post like this, but can you like this message for me so I can DM people?? Thank you!!

I’m looking for a role in Category Management, Trade Management or just Sales in general. I am very competent and have valid credentials. Any help is appreciated.
