I have been using LinkedIn since the beginning and have had a LinkedIn Recruiter account for the last few years. I was doing a audit of my current account usage, as well as trying different formats to increase responses. With a current accept rate of 15%, I should be happy with the results, right?

I have very fond memories growing up. I had the best father and mother a child could ask for in parents. My mother was always there for me. She had a hot meal ready for our family every night. We always had everything we wanted, and more than we ever really needed. Both parents taught me morally what was…Continue
