    yeah, I appreciate the replies. I think you're all correct, tbh. I'm just desperate for attention and validation (and hey, maybe a new job, too?).

    I got an offer by reaching out to 10 people in a linkedin group with the same training/education as me and asked to talk about where they work. They all accepted then I picked their brains for a bit then those I clicked with, I asked directly how I could go about applying if I was interested in a job. Only 2 out of 10 I talked with interested me enough to even inquire about employment. Good luck man, times are tough out there but you've got this.

    That's really awesome, dude. I appreciate your reply. I'm still employed; I even love some of my co-workers. It's just been hard on me lately. Stress, not seeing my favorite co-workers as often due to corona, depression, no real gym to go to at the moment, etc. I'd leave in a heartbeat if I had the advanced computer skills that I'm working so hard to gain (e.g., programming in Python, etc). I've already got a few relevant certificates (e.g., Certified Public Accountant (CPA), and Microsoft Office Specialist: Excel Expert.), but I don't have the programming skills yet. I want to get out of business and hopefully one day be happy.

    It totally isn't. Lots of things aren't 'required', but there are some advantages to having a LinkedIn (imo).

    I graduated last semester and made a profile. Found an ok job on there for the time being, I just need the experience. The cool thing about it is potential employers will contact you on the site. I have zero connections and donโ€™t plan on adding people not my thing cuz. Iโ€™ll try to pick up some sloots tho.

    Man would love to help a brother out... But i've actually met some miscers irl and that's what worries me. Some real weirdoes on here

    I got my current job from linkedin btw. Not sure what your profession is but try to add recruiters or post stuff of value to get some activity on your page. Also make sure you get a legitimate headshot or at least something of high quality. Take some time to write out your bio and add the skills needed to help you stand out when applying

    I understand the job hunt struggle brah, I sent out 150 resumes this winter and failed 6 interviews before I got an offer. But joining a random miscer's LinkedIn is like sticking a sign on your back that says "PLS DETECTIVE ME".

    Good stuff. Picking up girls? Yeah I'm not good looking enough for that. Otherwise, I'd just make a Tinder and cut out the bullchit.

    Nah, I understand. I've met several miscers IRL throughout the years. I do need a professional picture (very badly). I will probably pay for a photoshoot or something soon. That and I need to put up some accomplishments aside from certifications (e.g., real work projects or something). I want to write some good code and put up the program or something or a github link. Idk. Just gotta keep on the grind. Thanks for the reply.

    Yeah, I get it. I won't be posting my profile then. It's all good. It was a dumb idea. You guys are my sanity check.

    No problem man! And good luck! Sounds like your on the right track

    Another thing from talking to recruiters, something they all say is employers like numbers and stats. That's how you stand out. How did you improve margins, sales, efficiency etc...

    If they can't accept you at your worst, then they don't deserve you at your best! (as the saying goes).

    Thanks, sir. Yes, I just added some GitHub code under my 'Featured' section. That particular code takes what someone does in 8 hours and does it in a few minutes with 100% accuracy. I need to add more stuff like this tbh.

    Honestly though - its whatever. Its really turned to shyt and is like barely a step above Facebook.

    If you are in a position where you REALLY need it and to find a job, it will probably be of little value to you.

    If you are in a position where you have a job, and are in demand - it will also probably be of little value to you (though it will vary in that case, but you will be like a sloot getting blown up on a dating site at that point - and will very likely be good with where you are).

    Its really not that good, and didn't help me out at all when I needed it. Still doesn't hurt to have though.

    So true, man. I've become really sad about some things in life, so getting new connections is neat and it is, in a way, related to furthering my career (which I've taken a lot more serious these past several months). Happiness won't come from LinkedIn though, lol!

    The constant spam of chitty virtue signalling makes it intolerable to click on the front page

    Also recruiters sending out bulk emails to everyone is annoying, for every half decent opportunity I get about 20 retards offering me the opportunity to work as a junior on a short term contract without healthcare

    I tell them to fuk off and not bother me unless it's a lead or director position and the following month they spam me again with starter jobs lmao

    It's a good place to get easy job offers if you have value.

    Low key place to chat to sloots as well provided you tread very carefully.

    Having random connections from who knows where in the world probably won't help much, you want to build a good network in your industry and geography
