I’m always intrigued to see how a specific group uses or thinks about a tool.
Job seekers think about LinkedIn a certain way, while wondering if their target audience (hiring managers, business owners, recruiters, HR) will find them and see their stuff in the right light.
I have to say, I don’t agree with the concept of many of them… like “get 4 million free contacts on LinkedIn.” That *might* help a recruiter (it might not), but I think most people will get zero value from indiscriminately growing their networks to the million+ range.
Another one talks about a mailing app which, if I understand correctly, violates the ToS of LinkedIn and has the potential to get you locked out of your LinkedIn account.
There are really interesting ideas/concepts in these posts but I’m not necessarily endorsing any of the ideas/strategies presented… I just thought you’d like to see what recruiters think about this crazy/amazing tool.
