I believe those stats on “applied” from LinkedIn are actually just those that clicked through to the actual job application, not a reflection of the number of actual applicants. I’ve heard stories from recruiters whose jobs on LinkedIn show 200+ applicants and only 15 actual applicants in the ATS. Shouldn’t discourage you from applying

Interesting. Thanks for the info.

I don’t know how accurate it is, I’ve seen 10-20 applicants apply to a role and then 30+ days they’re still hiring for the role.

Bullet points on resumes, keep them to one line? Or is it okay for them to be longer like on LinkedIn?

With certain projects it's hard to describe specific responsibility and impact in one line.

🐠 fam, I need some help. I have trouble asserting myself when in meetings with more senior folks. I become quiet and have a hard time articulating my POV effectively and succinctly. It feels like my brain shuts off and I’m not quick at processing my thoughts fast enough to contribute quickly. However, with my team, I’m very sharp, assertive, articulate and authoritative. I’m able to think critically quickly and provide smart suggestions. My team sees me as very smart, but I can’t translate this
