LinkedIn & the Spirit of the Day

1 April 2011 at 2:47PM 1 comment

The folks at LinkedIn are having a whee of a time for April Fool’s Day. Here are the “People You May Know” connection suggestions that came up for me today:

I love the subhead on Professor Heisenberg’s profile! One notices that half of these suggestions are British, two are German and two are Americans.

The profile for Mr. Hood of Nottingham, England is extraordinarily amusing:

I’m a bit concerned about the negative number of connections. One would hope to see connections to John Little, William “Will” Scarlett, Much Millerson, Friar Tuck, O.F.M.Cap. and Richard “Rex” Plantagenet.

The profile of Mr. Holmes of London is also amusing:

Of course, Mr. Holmes has a LinkedIn Recommendation from a Dr. John Watson, M.D., also of London:

So – A big shout out to the Wizard of In, or whoever at LinkedIn put this together. Thanks!

My Core Ideas

1. "I can't tell you the best way to get a job - because there is no one best way. After 21 years of recruiting, I CAN share things I've seen candidates do to guarantee they DIDN'T get the job."

2. "Most companies don't realize how their recruiting process impacts their candidate pool, and their business. Attention to simple things will result in big improvements."
