Thing 6: Pushing the brand too far?

After a brief break (end of term, allotment rush period), Thing 6 is taxing my brain a bit. I read an  article this week about how we share too much information online. And LinkedIn seems to encompass that for me. I'm not sure how wise it is to post my curriculum vitae online, maybe if I was a professional businesswomen, seeking to network and push my brand, I'd consider it. Or if I was a manager, or ruler of the world. But I'm just me, a lowly library assistant with a varied employment history - from measuring broad bean flowers to working in a supermarket cafe to confirmed and habitual bibliophile. Perhaps I'll change my mind in the future.

I'm already on facebook, and keep that to strictly friends. The outside world is not ready for the onslaught of photos of my cat sleeping.

  1. Like facebook - you can decide what you share at what level on linkedin. My hubby has his CV on it - however a 'casual observer' would definitely not be able to access it.
