Dumbasses of LinkedIn: Your weekly thread for all things asinine, stupid, or complete BS that you see on LI.

Drumrolllll please! It is time for your third installment of DoLI! Again, since it is very much low hanging fruit, please limit things to two Gong rep posts per week tyvm!


I figure since we are ALL on LinkedIn, and we all shit on it to varying degrees, we could compile a mass thread to highlight some of the annoying, idiotic, or just plain dumb shit we see on that platform.


Very much inspired by those posts about hiring someone for showing up late to an interview cause they saved a dog or something, here is one post that crossed my LI feed this very morning!



No, sir, if you learned nothing from why you lost you are still, in fact, a loser. Simple.


And for one more....

Hindsight is 20/20. If we all knew what we knew now, we wouldn't be where we are at currently. You can't say "Don't make the same mistakes" because no one has ANY clue whether or not a company will blow up or not.


Happy Wednesday, my Savages. May your wits stay sharp, your mountains stay blue, and your commission checks be overflowing.

This is the type of shit that makes me feel vindicated in my opinion that LinkedIn is for boomers.

Pink Floyd is a band. They released an album in 1979 called The Wall. Arguable the most common song on the album is called "Another Brick in the Wall," of which lyrics are 'All in all it's just another brick in the wall.' So this is a photo of just another brick in the wall.
