ies who will make those calls, and send those emails, ‘till hell freezes over. So you’re dealing with people who are simply doing, or attempting to do, their job. Yes, it’s you’re right to be dismissive of people who stumble in their sloppy attempt to reach you. And some are insensitive—the world seems to be full of that these days. But taking those calls and politely turning them off may be a way to solve the problem. Otherwise they will continue to attempt to reach you, which is the situation that motivated this rant in the first place.…
a possessive pronoun as in your blog makes me embarrassed for you. You are (you're) making yourself appear ignorant when your grammar totally negates what you're attempting to accomplish with your blog.
There is a reason why the larger career consulting firms pay their consultants minimum wage and their sales reps six figures.
And please don't set up a twitter account where you tweet daily that unemployment sucks, employers are unfair, you're broke and your vehicle is about to be repossessed,the economy has ruined your life. That's where a lot of those career consultants got their start and why they are giving you all this goofy advice about personal branding and blogging.…
role in HR was the most enjoyable and therefore am attempting to be an independent Recruiter in my "golden years".
Oh, what I would give to spend an afternoon listening to whatever Sandra was willing to share! Thank you all for your contributions.…
knowledge, or prompt a new way of looking at an issue...and the attempt to drive traffic is nothing more than saying : "if this white paper speaks to you, we have a solution to the problems"..and that's not being sinister if it's honest.
I love white papers..i have written some, and they worked because I designed them to be teaching tools and discussion prompters..think of them as a way to be a resource for your market.…
ck accept I noticed something was awry. I clicked Accept, I clicked again, and again, an again. I logged off and logged back in and clicked again. But they weren't "Accepting". So after trying off and on over several days I figured Linkedin was having one of their typical programming problems and wrote customer service explaining the problem.
Below is the reply I received:
> Thank you for contacting LinkedIn Customer Support. You are no longer capable of mass accepting invites. You will need to go in and accept them one by one.
> We apologize for any inconvenience.
> Have a great day Jeff!
I have not received a reply as to why I am unable to mass accept but I think it's pretty save to assume that Linkedin is attempting to stop Open Networkers by making it massively inconvenient. (FYI I have over 9400 first level connections)
By my count that's at least 4 or 5 attempts at shutting down Open Networkers.
This wil obviously dramatically change how Open Networkers work on Linkedin. Be prepared to Accept each and every invite individually if you are "tagged" as an Open Networker by Linkedin.
Typically I would sign my post with my Linkedin email address but then I'd have to go in and Accept all the damn invites I'd get from people reading this post.
Ehh I'll put it in anyway just out of spite but don't expect me to Accept for several days, possibly weeks, maybe a month. Worst case 2 months.
like some just allow things to simmer till it reaches a boiling point and at times act in the heat of the moment with not looking at the bigger picture.
I do have one question for you though, as a resume writer how do you guide an individual that attempted to go at it and work for themselves only to find (for whatever reason) it was not for them. Let's say for sake of this conversation that this realization is within 90 days. I have had clients in the past, right or wrong, discredit individuals for these failed attempts. I would curious to hear the advice you would offer in this situation.…
