"@ Linda, @ Sarah: IMHO, LI has been trying to squeeze every last dime out of recruiters while simultaneously more and more limiting what we can do/get for that same-said dime, and as a near-monopoly, they do it BECAUSE THEY CAN.   No…"

"Linda I completely agree with you, and had the very same thing happen to me when I was in agency working on an MSP.  I was sent the invite to join a "talent conference' and when I rsvp'd I was declined due to "it not being…"

"Thanks for being honest, Daylon.  I don't see the value in being certified by LI for a LI product.  It means nothing in the grand scheme of recruiting for me.   I have had a bad experience with LinkedIn recently, regarding a…"

"I took the test more out of curiosity (got a free code) - to see what it was all about.  Fact is that I don't use hiring manager reviews in LI, and wouldn't import leads into it (I use my ATS), and once I have an outside email…"

"Will it get you a placement? In the end is that not the only question to ask? Interested in learning more in hearing original announcement, but now- not so much.  Thanks for sharing Daylon. Curious to hear what others have to say. WWLD"

"IMHO, while gaining knowledge is a useful end in itself, if a successfully- passed certification or exam won't get you a new or better (paying) job for passing it, then it's not useful. Keith "SPHR_Emeritus"…"

"What's the value to this certification? Whether or not the testing methods are valid, the bigger and more important question is: why does it matter if you're certified or not?  I'm not sure whether or not this is like paying for…"
