The Shit You Find On LinkedIn (rolling)

LinkedIn is fucking weird. I realised that I regularly get weird messages, unexpected contact adds and on the odd occasion where I look at the feed, a barrage of psychopaths sounding like corporate fucking robots.

Then I got this sent to me this morning.

I have no experience in this area whatsoever other than eating food everyday. I have no idea how or why this guy messaged me, but can’t imagine his criteria for ‘qualified’ is particularly high.

Use this thread to share the worst of LinkedIn.

ChatGPT really cooked LinkedIn and made it even more unhinged than it already was

That is so good to hear, and completely unsurprising. It’s beautiful that you’ve created such an environment that people would share this with you too.

Reminds me of this all-time classic

This will be the most vulnerable thing I’ll ever share.

I’ve gone back and forth whether to post this or not.

We just had to layoff a few of our employees.

I’ve seen a lot of layoffs over the last few weeks on LinkedIn.

Most of those are due to the economy, or whatever other reason.

Ours?

My fault.

I made a decision in February and stuck with that decision for far too long.

Now, I know my team will say that “we made that decision together”, but I lead us into it.

And because of those failings, I had to do today, the toughest thing I’ve ever had to do.

We’ve always been a people first business. And we always will be.

Days like today, I wish I was a business owner that was only money driven and didn’t care about who he hurt along the way.

But I’m not.

So, I just want people to see, that not every CEO out there is cold-hearted and doesn’t care when he/she have to lay people off.

I’m sure there are hundreds and thousands of others like me. The ones you don’t see talked about. Because they didn’t lay off 50 or 500 or 5000 employees.

They laid off 1 or 2 or 3.

1 or 2 or 3 that would still be here if better decisions had been made.

I know it isn’t professional to tell my employees that I love them.

But from the bottom of my heart, I hope they know how much I do.

Every single one. Every single story. Every single thing that makes them smile and every single thing that makes them cry.

Their families. Their friends. Their hobbies.

I’ve always hire people based on who they are as people. People with great hearts, and great souls.

And I can’t think of a lower moment than this.
