Do you accept invitations on LinkedIn and never talk to them?

Title.

I’m guilty of this.

We’re gonna win so much, you may even get tired of winning. And you’ll say, 'Please, please. It’s too much winning. We can’t take it anymore. Mr. President, it’s too much.' And I’ll say, 'No, it isn’t!' We have to keep winning!

If they reach out I’ll always respond but if they invite me, then never say anything I’m not going to just start talking to them.  Linkedin went from a ghost town to sort of alright from like 2016-2017 and is now a dumpster fire.

Should have clarified the title. Talk = replied. They message you asking about something and you just ignore it.

oh, usually i always reply

#FreeCVM #FreeTurd #2007-2017

I rarely accept invitations on Linkedin from somebody unless I have at least some kind of connection to them already.  

I usually respond if it’s a “legitimate” message.  But if it’s painfully and obviously a sales pitch or some kind of automated message, then I just delete it.

Guys, please help me figure out why the guy didn’t respond to me on linkedin. Many tanks.

Dear sir,

Hope you’re doing well. Wanted to use the networking leverage of us both being charterholders to ask you a qeustion - I know the answer is always no with this sort of this if you don’t ask, but at least wanted to see if you’d read my message.  Your firm is hiring for what I would classify my dream job. I’m anticipating I won’t be called back for an interview - which is fine - but my goal is to at least speak with the hiring manager for your currency analyst team. That work is honestly fascinating to me; seriously. I’ve developed somewhat of a bad habit of staying up all night to watch European economic data get released. Which is why I ask if you wouldn’t mind setting up an introduction for me? I just want to meet people, and if not for a potential career to at least entertain some stimulating global macroeconomic discussion and a couple more people in our networks. I’m sure you get these sorts of messages all the time, but life’s too short to not try I say. My resume is attached, and again, I would jump through multiple hoops to just talk with your currency analysts. 

Thank you
CEO10k/DAY, CFA

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It be like that sometimes.

This is not good, drop the dear sir first of all.  ”I know the answer is always no with this sort of this if you don’t ask, but at least wanted to see if you’d read my message”.  Yikes.  It was also very transparent about the job, on networking you have to play the long game.  At times its even too transparent to contact people while there is a live job posting if its a small group.  Often informational interviews have about a 50% hit rate.  Talking about bad habits staying up all night waiting for release, also very, very bad.  “That work is honestly fascinating to me; seriously. ” JFC, seriously.  “I just want to meet people… to at least entertain some stimulating… more people in our networks. I’m sure you get these sorts of messages all the time, but life’s too short to not try I say.”  This reads like you shooting your desperate shot on tinder.

Those bloomberg checks are hot - we all know why you are staying up late. That said, I’m surprised you didnt get at least a response - the guy couldn’t setup 15 minutes to chat with you?

Thanks for the feedback. I’ll change my approach. Couldn’t agree more with the long game aspect. I’m going to switch up and just start asking to grab coffee with these guys.

Taylor is BAE. A lot of people do respond to me in all honesty. Some don’t and then I glitterbomb their office, but, that could have all been avoided in my opinion. 

¯\_(ツ)_/¯ It be like that sometimes.

Yeah just keep it short, two or three cordial sentences, be polite and thankful, but don’t sound desperate.  It’s a fine line.  The good thing is networking is a good way to practice this stuff.

Basically,

“Hello, I recently became a charterholder and am interested in ________ and I was wondering if you’d have a few mintues to speak over the phone or grab coffee to talk about your industry?  Hope all is going well, thanks again!  -Name”

You can add a bit more context about your interest or background in the message but don’t go overboard.  Also have good questions prepared and be familiar with topics in their industry.

If you grew up on in the rustbelt, every pretty girl in HS/College looks like Taylor Riggs, it’s a pretty non-descript blond white girl look.

would not consider hot.  i would say the hottest is prolly a younger becky quick or amanda drury.

I love my cheese. I got to have my cheddar.

Becky Quick???

#FreeCVM #FreeTurd #2007-2017

oooo, Taylor from Bloomberg has a CFA, someone should send her a link to the WC, I’m sure she’d enjoy our thought provoking conversations.

We’re gonna win so much, you may even get tired of winning. And you’ll say, 'Please, please. It’s too much winning. We can’t take it anymore. Mr. President, it’s too much.' And I’ll say, 'No, it isn’t!' We have to keep winning!

…young Becky Quick is a great call, i’m with you on that one bro. She isn’t the flat hottest money-honey, but she got brains too, which makes her very sexy.
