What’s a first connection? What’s the Inmail? And why is setting up a profile so stressful?

2. But you didn’t, so you thought you were done with it

3. When you realise that you are a working adult and need to have one

Hello again!

4. You, wondering why everyone is so polite in the comments

But I know this person’s brand on Twitter and it’s not this cool

5. When you realise how great it is for stalking people 

I have a new co-worker. Let’s see how good their professional history looks

6. But you also find out that people get a notification when you open their profiles

SNITCH!

7. When someone you don’t know send you a connection request

If you’re not a recruiter, please go away!

8. You, every time someone visits your profile
