Every now and again (and against my better judgement) I open LinkedIn. It is astounding how much of the feed there consists of recruiters, promoted content, and people sharing congratulatory posts about their own employers.

What a strange and depressing place.

  1. @jack Lordy, it’s just awful. I had to be on it more than I’d like (i.e., at all) the last year for job-search reasons, and it’s just a special sort of sad.

  2. @petebrown LinkedIn is one of Dante’s circles of hell — what got to me every time was the barrage of false hope (“here are 10 jobs you’ll be interested in!”) vs. the reality of a) a stupid algorithm that never quite figured out what I could do and b) the casual callousness of recruiters who NOT ONCE acknowledged my candidacies.
