For finance, do you apply for jobs on LinkedIn or use it as a stalking tool? Do you post your own ideas or share news to the timeline?

    Oh man, I love LinkedIn. A LinkedIn page tells you a lot about a person. I use it to:
    Stalk people I meet, estimate their TC
    Stalk people on dating apps, estimate their TC
    Stalk people my friends know to target my networking
    Stalk people who work where I'm applying to see what the team is like, how I would stack up against them, what questions I might get asked, how fast people seem to get promoted, internal mobility
    Find people I would potentially want to work for
    Find people who I can get a referral from
    Job postings and contacting recruiters

    Headhunters you find on LinkedIn are actually really useful for buy side jobs

    I am not too active on LinkedIn. Some recruiters contact me there and I guess it feels nice. I get contacted by people who want to get into management consulting and I would help them if possible.
    Then I guess it is a good tool to follow your network and what is going on around you

    To perform background check on someone that I encountered in a meeting or networking event lol. Or to see who got a new job or promotion. It is also useful to network with in house recruiters.

    [Blind] Check out this post! Let’s Post Like We’re on LinkedIn (Misc.)

    You guys should take a look at this relay thread that mocks "motivational" posts on LinkedIn. Hilarious shit

    I use it to make connections (and actually chat with them if they respond), stalk and keep an eye out for jobs or professional things I am interested in

  • Mainly to slide into DMs and pick up recruiters’ numbers. Then jobs keep flowing I to your Dm

    Use it for finding job postings, then find a connection at the company. Def use it as a stalking tool. Don’t post or read the posts bc I find it to be too localized (and not targeted). I sometimes share news but only if it’s a bigger company announcement. It’s great for digging on a person’s history, or getting a prelim idea of org structure. LinkedIn inbounds are great for recruiting since they’ve seen your background.
