Tags: irrelevant comments
Why are you making irrelevant post on my status………….Well think out of box.
Almost everyone today on LinkedIn is a victim of these so-called new problems [irrelevant post on their status] weren’t you; well I am victim and assuming you too..!
Many times I see irrelevant post or comment or job offer or some kind of promotional activities copied on someone else’s status which has no link or relation to original one.
Many of my connection are ready to fight against it. In fact I was also involved in one such a similar situation. I requested him to stop doing so but failed he is still on the race. Some stop some may never.
My question here come is does it really damage our status ?
To find this answer, first ask yourself a question, when you add something to your status what is your ultimate goal? Well mine was to reach maximum and assuming it was you’re too.
So when anyone comments on our status though relevant or irrelevant, it get spread to his connection as well and it goes on while the matter which is promoted is not their comment but our status.
Thus In fact it is like they are doing marketing for our status for free and that too without requesting.
Well my point is simple, when your goal is to reach maximum all these irrelevant comments are positive.
Take this example: Say your strength of connection is 500 and the person who post has another 500 or more than you get an extra reach of his connection and these goes on.
So they in fact are not spamming they are actually marketing your status to their connection that too freeeeeee! Wow!!
If you believe I am wrong, My point is misleading, please share it, I am no expert, I may have done many mistake.

I never thought that I would be a recruiter and I am sure that there are many like me.
When I was in school I never heard from anyone including from teacher about careers in recruitment even till HSC I was unaware about these industry.
All we wanted to become was Pilot, Engineer, Doctor and off course Cricketer.
It was only after graduation that I had a clear picture of what exactly a recruitment industry is.
Still had a big misconception that Human Resource Executive and Recruitment Executive are same. But later came to know that the role Recruitment executive is one of the functions of HR.
Finally almost six month old in this industry, now have a good knowledge about it and also eager to learn a lot.
There is no doubt recruitment is a sales job. But I came to know only when I started calling each potential candidate and consulting them about opening.
For a agency recruiter like me it is more than just normal sales. In any industry there are sales but it has to do only once, but in recruitment industry it is not twice but thrice.
1] Selling service to client.
2] Selling job to candidate.
3] Selling candidate to client.
And to add more worries to the job… We recruiter deal with the most unreliable product (candidate) in the world i.e. Human nature.
One thing that I don’t like about these industry is that either you will be awarded with gold medal or otherwise no award, neither silver nor bronze. No compensation for time, intelligence, money and efforts invested. You feel useless till you successfully placed a candidate and make a bill for your company
But I still enjoy working despite all these challenges.
Exactly don’t know the cause of attraction may be the money involved or adventure of helping a desperate candidate.
But a simple fact remains the same with any industry including recruitment that if you want to make your presence and leave your mark you need to work harder and smarter as well as need a little luck.
