Michigan Daily: I’m quitting LinkedIn (and you should too)

I love the Michigan Daily. I don’t follow many university newspapers in my RSS reader, but they’re so good. If you like your university’s newspaper, send me a link. Anyway, from Michigan Daily: I’m quitting LinkedIn (and you should too). “LinkedIn has become the epitome of everything the corporate world wants their applicants to be: never too loud, only outspoken in the right way and always perfectly professional. It leaves no room for imperfections, preferring instead to showcase a fictionalized highlight reel of corporate life, where the sexist coworker always gets their comeuppance and failures are eternally inspiring rather than demotivating. This is far from the reality of corporate life in which imposter syndrome and discrimination often run rampant through the beige-colored halls.”
