I’ve already got an About.Me page, as well as a LinkedIn profile, but this week I will be updating those to be more current. It’s kind of annoying because no employer (at least in my experience) is going to look for someone through or check out someone’s About.Me page or LinkedIn profile. The only time I ever hear the words ‘LinkedIn’ it’s when someone at work is complaining about that time they signed up for it and haven’t stopped getting emails about it since. It feels like I’m doing a lot of work on something that isn’t relevant, and this professor constantly says, “Don’t do something just for a grade” when that’s exactly what this is.
But, the key to being professional is giving the client what they want, and in this case my professor is the client and I am the professional he has hired, so I will give the client what he wants.
