What’s the right way to think about adding LinkedIn Learning training to your profile? I’ve set a goal to do a course a week, so adding them all to my profile seems excessive. But I also want to highlight some learning. What rule of thumb do you use?

Definitely not discouraging learning. Read, take classes, write, apply, practice, etc. Will only make you better.

But I have a good friend who always posts that stuff on LI and it just comes across as desperate. I get marketing yourself, but again, if you're gonna do it, "Look what I / we did!" is WAY better than, "Look what I know!"

No hiring managers would put ounce of consideration on this

I wouldn’t add it, but there’s so many that look interesting! I need to start doing some

No one looking at profiles cares about learning programs completed. They care slightly about certifications.

I’m not saying don’t do the learning. Learning is great and will help you in all sorts of ways. But flashing completion badges on your profile reeks of desperation because everyone knows how easy they are to earn.

Does anyone have any tips on how to deal with patronising managers?

It's been going on for weeks now where they don't explain things they need from me properly (they make it seem very small and simple then change the ask later), they give my male counterpart better opportunities and briefs, they grill me on how exactly I spend my time daily.

I know it's not the end of the world but it's causing me stress and work crying which I never did before.

We “accidentally” adopted Carly as a feral from a TNR program 3 years ago. But when we kept her indoors after the spay before releasing, she refused to go back outside! I think she’s won the lottery. This is her on her favorite Little Mermaid blanket. She’s very timid is still flinches when we approach her but she lets us pet her from time to time. 😇

I am working the position of two employees since my colleague recently quit. I am up for payment increase evaluation. I do similar work to a sales engineer in health IT and make around 80k currently. I was thinking of asking for 130k hoping for 120k as the plan is for me to continue working this position that use to require 2 people. Is this unreasonable? I also found out, based on inflation, I am now making less now then i did in 2015 when I was paid around upper 60k. Good company though.
