Where the heart is
So I get THIS e-mail message from Linked In:

Quote:
Bonnie, congratulations!

You have one of the top 5% most viewed LinkedIn profiles for 2012.

LinkedIn now has 200 million members. Thanks for
playing a unique part in our community!


Considering the paltry number of views on my profile, that actually seems kind of sad.

Maybe y'all could spike it up a few more notches? Who knows, I might be up for one of those iPad Minis the CEO gave everyone at Linked In. I mean, shouldn't there be a prize or something?

I got one of those...I think it is a virus, or at best spam.

Your resume just needs some embellishment Matt. You could always list that you are a valued member of BOL and define every job duty you've ever done to make it look like you are the ultimate banking guru....

LinkedIn, in my opinion, is as much about networking as it is job searching and resume-posting.

For me, keeping all my banking contacts up-to-date gives me the feeling that I could get back into banking at any time, should I choose to do so.

Anyone wanna hire me for a lot of money?? smile

I got a similar email, except I think I was only in the top 10%. I assume it was just LinkedIn trying to drum up business.

I've connected with a number of old colleagues through LinkedIn that I want to stay in touch with, but only professionally, so I wouldn't want them as facebook friends.

The downside is that it generate calls from headhunters. I'd guess most the people that looked at my profile were headhunters.
