Worst LinkedIn Cold Message Stories
Why don't we get a thread going of your worst LinkedIn networking stories. It seems like I get 1-2 undergrad students messaging me per week. I always try to help them, and give them some of my time, but the last few undergrads that I have talked to have completely wasted my time. Last week, I had a guy ask me to go for a quick coffee chat. I had some time early in the morning to meet the kid, so I obliged because I remember what it was like. However, 5 minutes before we were supposed to meet, he messages me on LinkedIn saying "something came up." These kids are going to ruin the networking opportunities for the rest of you. I'll still do my best to help out the community, but some of these kids do not understand common decency. Does anybody have some other cringe/funny stories?
