Why do random people (aka juniors from your old alma mater trying to get a foot in the industry) feel it's ok to connect with you on LinkedIn when you have no clue who or what they are?

I'm actually okay with it as long as they send a note telling me why they want to connect. I HATE when randos connect with no followup.


Yea anyone who sends me an request to connect without a personalized message go straight to ignore

Agreed ^ tell me why first then I don't connecting

I am newly pregnant, vaccinated and boosted, and trying to figure out if I need to stop going into the office and increase the medium level of COVID precautions I had been taking. I had previously been going in 2-3 days a week and working remote the rest of the time. Also my husband travels a fair amount for work and idk if he should be trying to limit travel/office time as well. Will ask my Dr too but curious what level of advanced precautions others in this situation have taken. Thanks!


Hi ladies!
I’m interviewing next week for a Sr Account Manager role @ a digital mkt agency.
The interviewer asked me to send in my salary expectation before we talk. This is a little bit challenging to me. Talk numbers.
The position ask for at least 4 years experience. I have 6.
I want to ask for a fair amount because I do think I can bring much value to the company.
Also don’t want to compromise just because I’m out of work at the moment. Do you guys have a suggestion ? TIA!!!


What’s the smartest/best way to maximize Star alliance, Bonvoy, Amex corporate, and CSR points to take a trip for two from nyc to Italy? Newbie here- 1st time using my points to travel!

Did anyone receive additional amount (1.25 lac or more) in salary credited today.


This is my laptop. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My laptop is my best friend. It is my life. I must master it as I master my life. Without me, my laptop is useless. Without my laptop, I am useless. Before God, I swear this creed. My laptop and I are the defenders of the capital markets.
