are ppl fake in the corporate world just as they are on LinkedInSubscribe
I'm a first year econ student who is relatively new to the whole finance world. Obviously I was advised to get LinkedIn and initially I found it extremely exciting as I could read abt my peers, research job opportunities and follow interesting ppl in the industry and companies. However I'm really sceptical abt it now Cus all I see ppl do is suck up and polish their profiles by posting thousands of online course certifications with massive captions and loads of hashtags. I see loads of fake comments like "that's interesting"; "feeling motivated now" when I know the person personally and doesn't actually mean it. Feels like I'm using Instagram with kids posting "woke up like this" selfies.
Makes me wonder if this culture is very prominent even in the job space. Does fake enthusiasm and sucking up take you far in the real corporate world?
Ps. I don't have a problem with ppl doing online courses (personally done a few myself) but I feel posting what an "elating exp it was" just makes it seem like a facade. It anyway appears on your profile for the employer to see.
