I think more experienced people just don’t bother updating their linkedin with these details because they’re already “secure”. Interns and new hires are probably still trying to reach their end destination so they’re trying harder to do everything they can

LinkedIn is the new Facebook; fcuking nuts!

it is blown up. Why name interns and new hires only ? My linkedin feed is crowded with experienced folks and leaders with pictures and write ups of different team parties they go to or the grey people they meet up. While it is nice to see all the updates and encourage people to come and work for them but sometimes it becomes too much. Some might say it is good way to market the firm then in that case what wrong did the interns did? they are also marketing themselves. 🤷🏻‍♀️

It’s an equivalent of “show and tell” that professionals can’t seems to let go and grow out of. They all want some freaking “Likes” which is a creation of social media and an increasingly insecure people
