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

Just realized I mistakenly misspelled the person’s name I sent an email to as part of an interview process. I so hate doing that to someone, do I follow up with a short - “Sorry X I realized I misspelled your name in the prior email, have a nice weekend” or do I just let it be? One letter off, this is what I get for responding on my phone, dang autocorrect.

Unpopular opinion- maxing out your 401K is overrated. I would rather have the money for other investments that I can access now ( ie real estate). Thoughts ?

How do you know when you have enough money? I got laid off in the spring, but don’t feel a pressing need to get a new job right away. Have 3 rental properties, all paid off, get about $3k/mth net from that, have about $200k in a 401k and another $200k in more-liquid investments. I spend less than $2k/mth and feel happy and comfortable. Not married and no kids... but would like that one day, so thinking of maybe saving some more money for that. Anyone been in a similar situation? Any advice?

I would not want to lose that money, appreciate your ideas! Thank you.

Would like to end up at Microsoft or Google long term but am worried about Facebook being a resume killer given recent news. For reference, have worked at Deloitte for 2.5yrs in the Cloud Sec space (more strategy than tech)
