Linkedin and the business of false advertising to make money on jobseekers
100 weeks ago
Linkedin is a big piece of shit. Jeff Weiner is just another big asshole using your personal data to violate your privacy and become rich.
But linkeBin are also involved in the most gigantic scam ever.
Most of "job ads' on linkedin are fake. Ads are posted by legitimate companies like salesforce.com, Splunk, avaya, , Oracle, but they correspond to no openings. The people in charge of posting on linkedin are just collecting resumes.
They are just filling their database.
The jobseekers think jobs are real and applies but to no avail, they'll never get any answers. nor will they have any feedback on their applications.
In the mean time, linkedin makes money with premium accounts, making firms pay for ads (most of them fake but it create traffic) and create the (false) impression that everybody must be on linkedin to get a job.
In reality, the HR pricks which are the main users of linkeBin are creating red and black lists and being on linkedin is a guarantee you'll never get the job you want as you are stamped from the beginning.
