Why when I check my spam box (where all my LinkedIn correspondence go) am I excited to find the email with the subject line, ‘people are looking at your LinkedIn profile.’ I immediately click to see who it could be. As the page loads, my heart rate speeds up, delusions of grandeur run through my head. I get excited. I’ve finally been discovered!
Oh it’s just Bill from high school again. Looks like he changed his profile pic and title line. What the hell is a senior implementation analyst anyway? Did he not have the authority to implement change with the designation of junior? Besides Bill, it’s a few other no names who think that slapping a happy pic above their title line will get them noticed on this irrelevant social media network.
It seems that 2 people have viewed my page anonymously. Hmm, maybe they are the ones who hold the purse strings. Maybe I should update my profile while I am here.
37 more other people have viewed me as well!
No, I’m not dumb enough to upgrade my account. Sorry LinkedIn. I’ll see you next time in my spam box.
