Professional Networking Tool
LinkedIn is my preferred way to interact with business professionals. I do, however, wish that the site would allow a longer time to deactivate an account or allow one to restore their account within a year. I deactivated my account for a “spiritual hiatus” and attempted to set my account back up and was unable to retrieve it. I built a great network before and now it seems like I am not getting as many recommendations for people that I knew from college and other businesses. 😏 I’m sure my post sounds like a combination of great things and not so great things, but I do really appreciate the fact that the tool is much more professional than most social media outlets.
Responding to recruiters new feature is terrible
In the past when I was contacted by a recruiter in my message inbox, I could respond directly to the recruiter. Now, the app forces you to respond whether or not you are interested in the job before you have a chance to respond. To me this is a 100% unnecessary feature and is an unprofessional way to contact a recruiter to express interest. The right way to treat a recruiter is to write that person directly and let them know your intentions, perhaps including some background for your decision. This can help keep communication channels open in the future and is a networking opportunity. This new feature is a result of someone “overthinking” the situation. This goes back to the old saying, “If its not broke, don't fix it”
It’s a shame LinkedIn has gone the lame -childlike FB direction allowing posts which mirror FB of selfies, family outings, dinner plates and gifs / memes flooding the “business network” feed and constant / annoying and unrelated to your profile or interests .....posts/ads which have no option to “delete / not see” in the message post options? They still have yet to set up a message system that is fully functional... who wants to go and endlessly click on and select a message and click on then ....3 processes to delete it??? Where is “select all” in the in the in-box to simply delete all checked messages? And where is the right sweep to delete an individual message or conversation?? If you want to be like everyone else’s “like” social platform and not unique any more for real business networking function / needs, than at least catch up to the rest of the social fluff sites which have functional message management.
