Is it bad form to not annouce new positions on LinkedIn?
I'm great at networking but I don't really enjoy making the obligatory "EXCITED FOR THIS OPPORTUNITY" soap opera speech on LinkedIn. The only thing I post on LinkedIn is my own personal blog stuff related to markets.
If I got accepted into a graduate program, internship, or FT position and didn't post about it, would a firm take it the wrong way and think I was ungrateful or something? I would still obviously add it to my LinkedIn experience but I wouldn't make a post about it or even check the "update network" button when adding it. idk I'm probably overthinking it.
I usually reach out to people directly and thank them for their help with a phone call or email. Are there any downsides to not making the new job post? I have zero interest in likes or showing off to the kids from my high school. Tbh I like my privacy and I don't even like the fact I have to be on LinkedIn at all.
