I read an interesting article the other day about how LinkedIn is offering a premium to jobseekers to highlight their profile and ranking them higher in the results than those more qualified in the search results for employers paying for posts.
More infuriating, I keep getting emails (and I am sure I am not alone) to upgrade my personal Linkedin account to Jobseeker Premium. The email I just received really upset me since it said :
Here are a few companies where Premium subscribers now work:
and then (just happened) to list 3 companies, all of which are my recent/current clients!! Coincidence?? I'm not entirely sure….
I can't be paranoid here, as they were 3 for 3 !! AND 1 of these is a 30 person company!
If anyone else received this email, I would love to compare the companies they highlighted on yours…
