learning from linkedin

According to a recent piece of LinkedIn mail:

Fact: Adding 5 connections makes you 3.7x more likely to receive a job offer
Oh boy! With odds like that, I'd be a fool not to make 5 more connections.

I'm going to start adding this signature to all of my outgoing mail:
Fact: Telling people about my blog ( makes you 3.8x more likely to get your startup acquired
Because 3.7x just wasn't good enough.

That's probably true. I've got more than five LinkedIn connections, and despite threats on my profile, I still get spammed by clueless recruiters on a regular basis.

Given my dearth of recruitment offers, maybe you should replace all your work experience with mascot doodling and McJobs ;)
