Just using LinkedIn since long and being active at all possible times.

427. Looks like I need to start networking more!


How do you even get that many? Ionly have about 657


Lol. There were few posts of mine that blew up, mostly related to job opportunities or resume review or getting into Amazon. 2 days ago, I started answering questions on quora and it got 34k+ views in 2 days. That also caused many people to connect with me on LinkedIn.

I have about 300


When you say Networking Do you actually have a relationship with them? or are they just like random facebook friends? I'm an introvert, just started my career and trying to understand how Linkedin networking can get me referrals in the future.


It's the opposite in my understanding. You have a lot of unknown people on LinkedIn, but only close ones on Facebook. Anyway, the basic funda is to build your network and be active on the platform. Your posts, comments should be meaningful and contributing to the conversation, not just 'interested' or 'congratulations'. Doing this would eventually create a sense of familiarity within your connections even though you've never talked to them. Once you need to look for an opportunity, you can then reach out to them, and the chances are higher that they would reply and help you out. Also building your connections will help you with better job opportunities too.

I have close to 450 I think


322, gotta start making some friends.



I have like ~600 I think, I can never decide if I should be more active or not

Can you share with me a public or not-confidential due diligence case study which evaluates a company (either a start-up or a commercialized-stage company) that uses AI/ML please? I would like to see how your company helps assess these clients’ technologies. Why do they need these technologies? Are they licensed or patented? What are potential issues? Thank you!


Case study for homework after the initial HR screening phone call? Good or just a waste of time?


I love my job but does anyone else feel like quitting and going to train as a healthcare professional after this? It’s enough to send me back to school to go and do something meaningful


How do I politely ask someone who has started butting in during client calls to everything I say? It makes both of us look bad. She’s expecting a promotion this year to my level.


Newbie here. Sounds like a lot of accountants at B4 firms are unhappy because they feel overworked and underpaid. I would LOVE to know how many hours they are working each year. If you’re in B4 would you please tell me how many hours you typically work in a year? I want to know if it’s drastically different from what I’m working at a regional firm. I love my team, schedule flexibility, pretty much everything except the notoriety of working for a big four and the extra $ that might come with it.

How’s the culture at MasterCard (tech roles rather than advisory/consulting roles) compared to big tech and/or big4 consulting? Would it be a good exit from consulting?


How to handle politics with your own father who is wildly right and you are simply a moderate? My dad is not open in any capacity to anything besides fox. He’s a smart guy so it makes me sad that he’s so close minded about this. I want to be kind and respectful but the man doesn’t even consider other views or opinions.
