    I loved this post! For me, it took shifting to work with people with disabilities that massively shifted my mindset on what is important. Reducing the complexity and bandwidth/energy spent trying to be something you are not unleashes your ability to focus building on your strengths...and when people do that it is pretty amazing to watch! Just wondering are you open to taking requests or ideas for things others think may be useful in your blog in the resume/brand space? I have a few common questions around some emerging trends that your readers may be thinking about and you did such a great job with this post, would love to see you tackle some of them....let me know if you would be open to some topic ideas and again great post!

    Sorry, Lynda. This has nothing to do with MyTweetPack or LinkedIn. Let me try to explain it a different way. If you go to the bottom of your beBee profile there is a place where people can links to their website and other social media profiles. Add the link to your Twitter profile as one of your links. Then, when people on beBee hit the Twitter share button on one of your articles on beBee it will automatically populate your Twitter handle in their tweet. Then, you will get a notification that someone has tweeted your beBee article and you retweet, thank them, etc. Does this make sense? If not, call me when you're free and we can walk through it over the phone: 970.692.3270. Heck, it'd be good just to catch up post NLV! ;)

    The core of this buzz is excellent. Personally I am developing a new twitch about marketing labels such as millennials, gen x, boomer etc - for if we are able to be conditioned to the label, maybe we will be the depicted stereotype. That is about the label.

    The wisdom of a life in work carry timeless principles - maybe the the third item I see differently i.e. network on social media, because I prefer the simpler "network intelligently" . Social media is "media" and young people know that, and for them it is superfluous to say that networking today is virtual - the reality of mobile is a day-to-day reality for each successive generation that is making their way into the work world and those yet to come.

    Young people are not extending their nervous systems, they are extending their inner circle so there is no loss of immediacy of people in those closely knit and small private groups. Where young people do feel the pinch and pain is in finding a job, even one that is well below their capability and in this regard the market is steadily becoming dog-eat-dog.

    I have no qualms in the advice given here, very sound and to the point. The labels well as honourable Jews may say, they are Meh!

    @David B. Grinberg this applies to all. I am finding that 40+ somethings are in the job market or want to be and they are having the same difficulties.

    If there was any one piece of advice that draws us to your well designed post it would be the word value. I am you are a certain value. The question to answer is how i am valuable to the employer or customers i seek. The fundamentals you have displayed here are excellent. Putting teeth in them requires developing a value set that potential money making opportunities want you.

    I find that all too many people rely on education, experience and other very tangible things when presenting themselves. What a potential company wants to know in the end can they make money with you. I use the word money in a very broad sense. Not just profit, but also your interaction with others and how you will impact the total landscape.

    Knowing your fit within the structure before you interview or sell will show through in the process. Projecting yourself within the organization once in, is something that creates value going forward.

    #4 Thanks for sharing you valuable feedback Neville. Yes, I concur that labels can indeed be divisive, especially in the workplace setting. In fact, I like to say that age is just a number. However, the media and society at large continue to perpetuate labels for various generations and then articulate their purported strengths and flaws, etc. This strikes me as a right of passage per se of every new generation coming of age, as the media tries to dissect their attributes or lack thereof. I recall, for instance, when I was growing up Gen X was dubbed, "The Lost Generation" and other unflattering terms. I'm sure that Gen Z will be the next demographic to come under scrutiny by media and society as they start to enter the work world. Thanks again for your thoughtful comments, kind sir!

    @David B. Grinberg that's a lovely read! Now a thought... what if we stopped talking of gen X or Y, Millennials, baby-boomers and the like and just spoke of human beings? At 57 years old your blog is totally relevant to people my age and those of my parents' age. Labels may be useful to put things in context but don't you find they can be damaging too?

    #22 you are absolutely right an endorsement for a job or a project costs virtually nothing in time or money and often gets dry, particularly when similar endorsement is also offered for a competitive candidate,for the same the same job or project.Of course, you will not be able to discover that ,until you both apply for them.

    #17 Yes, Mohammed - you are spot on. Most of my congratulations came from close family and friends - but it is interesting to see how many people like to push a button on social media, without understanding does it make sense. Just like when someone on LinkedIn endorses me for a skill that I do not have. This is all part of the automation of the platform that asks users to endorse someone - does Jennifer have Accounting skills? (No, Jennifer does not- but then someone endorses me for it anyway!) And then someone is caught up on the social media haze - blind to what is in front of them - they just want to get that box out of their way!

All of us are guilty of just hitting a button before reading and my reflection is one that basically on thoughts about how we can improve the way that we interact on social media. I mean lets be honest - most people from my high school days would not even know it was my birthday if not for FB telling them it was. :-) As far as reaching out to the 600+ in my network that had no idea that my new job title 'OWNER' meant that I launched a 2nd company - yes, I did start to reach back out to some to share my excitement on my new business launch - but, then I realized there is not enough time in a day for me to reach out while running both businesses effectively right now. And to be frank - most of this happened on LI - which I am not as enamored with anymore. :-)

    @ Jennifer Schltz.It has to be conceded that knowledge about people is not necessarily imposed by the prestige of social media .Your real support network will not come from 500+ connections,simply because most of them don't know you and so many might not be interested in what you did or doing.My advice is to make an alternative list of connections of the people you have warm feelings for and are constantly in touch with you.Think offline before you start preparing the alternative the list because they are likely to be the people whom you would like to talk to if you were passing hard time or whom you enjoy working with them .I am sure when you have reviewed all the names you may consider not more than 10 % of the 500+ connections who are often from your intimate loved ones inside your extended family and offline friends.Sometimes,anyone you would like to call him now is not who is going to congratulate you for starting your new business! We sometimes thrive for something that doesn't worth the thrife.My warmth congratulations Jennifer.

    @Jennifer 🐝 Schultz, you brought up a good point. I remember when many of us added beBee Ambassador to our Linkedin Profiles, we were bombarded with messages congratulating us on our new jobs. I'll never forget logging in and seeing that I had over 200 messages. I thought there was a glitch. Very few read what the change was. I read @David B. Grinberg's comment and he made a great point about sharing what you (or for that matter anyone who encounters a similar situation) are doing now. At the same time, it would take quite some time to go through 1700 inbox congrats ;-) I know I've made the mistake of reading what the new job is without knowledge of "how it came to be," and congratulated others too. After my own experience, I am careful now. Congrats to you on owning your business, quite awesome or as @Mamen 🐝 Delgado would say, quite crack!

    The downside of the social media haze is that everything is done at speed, but the upside is that it saves having a rolodex on one's table, plus you actually get to recall what those people looked like who got put into your rolodex.

    Jennifer, first let me congratulate you for embarking on a new, exciting and meaningful business venture. I wish you all the best with it.
    Second, as one who thrives on emphasizing the positive (for better or worse), just think how you would feel if nobody responded at all -- would you feel better or worse? While what you describe might not be the best example of social media engagement, it's engagement nonetheless (albeit minor).
    Now what if you turn the tables to your advantage by leveraging some or all of the 600 readers who did bother to engage with you? How? Contact them and let them know more about your new business. Seize this as a business and networking opportunity, not a popularity contest based on comments. Most people I know are already overwhelmed by information overload and other time constraints associated with the work-life balance and related personal/professional life challenges and events.
    Just something to ponder. Keep buzzing!

    It is frustrating, Jennifer! I just published a similarly themed post on LinkedIn "How REAL is Your Network?" It occurred to me that despite having an incredibly active network via a variety of platforms, when it's time to take action and do something specific, not too many will actually step up. Great reminders here to make an effort to connect in a more genuine way to build a more meaningful network.

    These outward ideas of complaining express the challenges others may experience in your complaining. There is a deeper and more disturbing aspect of those who gain the habit of complaining. Bitterness. This word, like it feels when you say it out loud, infects not just the outside world but deeply harms your ability to see success from your own psyche. These are awesome reminders of facing our day looking forward and contributing.

    When we start blaming others and/or list out a set of complaints, then we become forgetful of ourselves, our shortcomings, our own weaknesses. The habit of complaining is no good at all. Instead, when we sprinkle a little perseverance, and ponder over things and hope for the best, then this very feeling makes us cheerful. So, why blame others, and spoil our attitude?

    I had a conversation with an individual and he said people should have resumes to complement their LinkedIn and bebee profile. I told him mostly what people find on a personal resume will be on their online profile. He kept insisting there should also be a separate resume along with an online profile. A recruiter would based their interview most on an applicant online profile. An online profile should be updated as often as possible. Remember to insert key words, recent training and phrases.

    Nearly the only action I get on Linked in, is my fake Parody profile. I post nothing with it, I produce no content - but every week, I get at least 2 emails from other suffering candidates. Go see Richard Dumbasse - your DICK in the office.....I need to add a Spirit Animal to that profile.

    I just clicked APPLY on a job ad, was taken to another page with APPLY and APPLY WITH LINKEDIN, tried the LI option.
    Like I have often seen, this merely populates an ATS form from the LI data - AFTER I give them permission to my LI data!

    No thanks. I bailed! Like Liz Ryan said in this great summary post of hers by @Ivette K. Caballero, in the link Don't Waste Your Time with Online Job Applications -- Here's Why!

    Well, Steve, I already burnt them all long time ago... But here comes another recruiter who absolutely wants it. I told him "please, have a look at my LinkedIn" profile, but he wants my CV... So, okay, I saved one from the flames and I will give him, just to be kind with him...

    #11 You are certainly right. I read in an article that refusing to upload a resume could be perceived as failing to follow instructions. It's like half empty and half full. Can't win them all.

    I agree @Erroll -EL- Warner - to me a professional profile found on beBee or LinkedIn should be all you need - and most of the time has all your career history on it anyway. As far as your question on will employers ignore your application if instead of uploading your resume - you direct them to your LinkedIn profile? It depends on the employer. I would look at it - but - others are still stuck in 1980 and will think you couldn't follow instructions. I know... it's frustrating! #6

    07/09/2016 #10 Jennifer 🐝 Schultz
    Steve - I am in agreement that the resume needs to evolve - but until employers top asking for them - candidates will keep wasting time developing them. We need more companies ready to adapt to change - there's so many that don't even understand social media platforms and how to use them to their advantage. The ones that do are typically large Fortune 500 or 1000 companies that understand the need to move forward. :-) #5

    #4 I agree with Jennifer, although I would hope Steve is right ASAP. There are just too many black hole applicant systems and HR personnel acting as a front line filter with their own requirements.

    Regardless of medium, I agree that "Content is, was and always will be king." It speaks volumes, like a picture is better than words. And seeing something professionally done on paper can speak volumes - if only for that purpose. I have gotten a call, and ultimately the job, the day after a change on my LI profile.

    Another evolving item, per Liz Ryan @humanworkplace, is making your content your "human voice" story. Like Barbara Greene said, β€œIf you tell me, it's an essay. If you show me, it's a story.” A personal story of who you are and what you bring to any employer is better than bullet-point duties.

    As @brian-mckenzie states, yes research has shown you have 6 seconds. I would say that is still true on a LinkedIn-only format. See https://www.linkedin.com/pulse/why-perfect-job-lasts-six-seconds-jared-j-wiese.

    There is nothing I love more than pushing my experience, education and expertise through a key word grinder to match the ad shingle to find it gets 6 seconds of attention. Resumes are long dead. Unfortunately, too many big companies wont even talk to you unless you are in their talent seive. I have never had a job where I sat with HR for an interview, and in 30 years of working - the resume was not introduced once in a successful position. Not once. I don't want your job, I don't want go work for your company - I want to fix your glaring problem, get paid and move on.

    #4 Ok @Jennifer 🐝 Schultz. I have seen many companies posting jobs and ask for CV and Resume. No provision for LI or any other website hosting resumes. I think that's out dated. If a prospective candidate enter LinkedIn in that location that said upload resume will they go to LinkedIn or ignorant the applicant?.

    07/09/2016 #5 Steve Blakeman
    #4 I hear what you saying Jennifer but I still believe that the resume is on it way out. Admittedly it may take some time as those old school employers inevitably adapt and the resume will end up as defunct as the CD ! I do take you point about jobs below management level at this point in time but again I see that evolving too. Thanks for commenting!
    Jennifer 🐝 Schultz
    07/09/2016 #4 Jennifer 🐝 Schultz
    Thanks for sharing Steve - as much as many of us would like them to - resumes aren't going anywhere anytime soon. They are still the number one requirement that 99% of the employers that I know, ask for, even after reaching out to a candidate on LI or any other social platform. And applicant tracking systems are built around the necessity of having a traditional resume. While LI can boast great user numbers - they don't represent employers who have below management level candidate needs in industries like manufacturing, home health, retail, and hospitality at the hourly job rate. Millenials may be described as not possessing a traditional resume - but, what really needs to happen is the resume needs to morph and change, to more of a one page career profile, which is already happening, but many "old school" employers aren't ready to accept change.

    After reviewing this thread, as the co-administrator of the Business Hub Hive, I couldn't help but notice that there are bees commenting here who have yet to contribute to the aforementioned hive.
    Some have shared content, which is against the stated rules. The hive is open to content written by the author, which is what @Phil Friedman, the other co-administrator, and I refer to as "original content."
    Perhaps, it's time to stop talking about quality business content and start writing it. And, that's not an invitation to debate what is appropriate content for this particular hive. We've been down that road already. The rules are clearly stated.

    #71 My thinking is BeBee is blurring the lines between professional and personal relationships. Personfessial relationship.

    I am not sure how i see this. I have always felt that my professional life is devoid of personal preferences being met while seeking win-win within a group of professionals.

    Seeing Social Media as a part of a larger scheme of brand building and possibly marketing, i don't know that as a growth platform any of them offer a 100% solution.

    I enjoy the banter back and forth as it hones my communication skills while at the same time learning. I have enjoyed ours.

    I have to earn bucks too, my business doesn't really lend itself to social media. Yes i have been propositioned and asked to hold money for several folks.

    #70 So you use it, Personally. That's all good. I have really enjoyed you comments!

    My #1 goal on beBee has been to help and share. I have aspirations of building professionally at some point. Most of us have to earn a buck.


    I think I'm with you - perhaps more than you realize. My point is not that Professional = only $. That may be an effect. But if beBee is trying to get Professional, that is certainly an aspect.

    I have the max of 5 "Services that you offer" on my beBee profile. I have been approached several times about "an offer too good to refuse" shall I say. And a couple times for advice. Free. Mentorship. Kinship. I am no LION.

    #69 You have passed me on that question and observation. I don't use social media for the purpose of developing, expanding or finding professional contacts and $$$.

    I see a lot of folks on LI that dominate the screen and would imagine use the platform to gain dollars.

    I would think that if you have been unsuccessful in growing your contacts on either platform the averages would eat you alive.

    I have read more about using social media for branding than i have marketing.
    Jared Wiese, 🐝 adding VALUE & RESULTS
    26/10/2016 #69 Jared Wiese, 🐝 adding VALUE & RESULTS
    An example of what I have seen is business people well in their careers posting on both LI and beBee. They get professional traction on LI, but only comments on beBee. They get work and $ from contacts on LI, but only cheers or jeers from followers on beBee.

    What are others seeing?

    #67 I think I agree with you. I love "what is present is the soul of business".

    I am not suggesting posts here like "This is how you do X. Then you do Y." Dry. No soul. No personal.

    beBee tone would be more like:
    "Are you looking for X. Maybe struggling to get your head around Y. Have you thought of Z.
    Here's something that might help..."

    #65 You don't know what you're missing until you discover you lost it or didn't have it.

    The self help styled business posting you are requesting is a dual edge sword. Business is brutal. It has goals, missions and teams to address those items.

    Microsoft demonstrated how instead of attacking a landscape, buy it, destroy all but yours or in some way own the game field in which you play. My guess is this is what happened or is happening to LinkedIn.

    So be careful what you wish for. BeBee is a great site that you can find an affinity of issues covered. I agree on one hand that the practical hands on business writing is limited. But what is present is the soul of business. The folks who discuss the back office workings of the emotional challenges of leadership and management .

    Thinking that an age group will be the panacea - might not bee.

    Some Millennials may be as set in their ways...

    #31: "In our youth we are full of knowledge" and confidence. Millennials don't want to be lectured. They think they know it all. It is that wisdom Harvey writes about that they eventually realize they need. But how does one cater to them or get them to want to post here? How To posts? Lessons Learned series?

    Communication can't be defined as "one more skill" but the "only skill" that makes a difference for any leader,because it's like a glue that sticks everything inside and outside the organizations together.By communication you convey a message or an image that can change customers mind,and also by communication the leader turn his/her org vision and mission into effective strategies and successful implementation.If an MBA can adjust the org tone and wave length of the communication process inside organisations and change positively employees perceptions,I can advice most top executives not only to seek an external intervene of an expert coach ,but also go a head with PHD.Thank you @John White,MPA for shedding a light on this crucial issue.

    Nice post @John White, MBA. when I joined MBA, I was blank for what I will learn and had no objective. All my colleagues used to say MBA is just a degree and nothing more. So, I emphasized, and focused. Tried to understand and done lots of presentations, case studies and more. After completing my MBA, I found a change in my confidence, presentation, research skills, personality and felt so good of this. Now whenever anyone comes to me for the MBA suggestions, I tell them what they will be learning and how it can change their life.

    Great post @David B. GrinbergToxic managers create an environment of mistrust and secrecy and fear drives behaviours that lead to poor decision making. Front line employees who hold the trust of the customers and business in their hands, soon become contaminated. If not turned around the business stalls, shareholders and stakeholders become discontent and the joy is gone. Sadly, it is all too common.

    @David B. Grinberg So well you've exposed the gross and tainted image of monster managers. Ugh...always such monster managers resemble good looking outwardly with their fake smile and showy courtesies. But, when they find the right time to sting, bite, spit venom, make hissing moves to scare and vomit vulgar, abusive words, then they show their real hidden faces and character. Simply, they dangerous, diabolic and disaster to all ..and nothing more!

    I just want to share something I found when googling my new manager.. keep in mind, I know have the position.. : "Systems Analyst, K***** W*** who was a racist & bi-polar person who tried to micro-manage me & other employees. Worst executive officer ever, very unprofessional. Was always cursing & making derogatory remarks about other employees who worked there. He even had the gall to insult both the CEO & President of the company out loud with viscous`remarks. Avoid this guy. Also the treatment of employees is terrible. The only place I can think of worst is a Chinese sweat shop or working for Electronic Arts." and the worst part is, it's all true. How can you begin to resolve things like this when the CEO and all other higher up's ignore the problem? At first, I loved the job, but now it is becoming taxing on my mental health.

    Bad bosses are very arrogant, bombastic, and egocentric. Their behavior stem from been intellectually challenged by subordinates. They strive because many CEOs are totally disconnected from their organizations. One CEO said he ignore complaint from subordinates. Such action allow bad bosses to strive. It give room to corruption and illegal activities within the organization. Simply, bad bosses strive because of incompetency up the hierarchy managerial structure.

    @David B. Grinberg your post has become a veritable support group. Through the discussions here it has expanded to include every aspect (some completely unexplored) of "Monster Managers." To anyone who has such a manager, one hard lesson I've learned -- Do not let them cause you to see yourself as a victim. Yes, you were wronged, and that's not okay. But don't see yourself as a victim.

    #62 @Gerald Hecht Per your comment, kind sir, it's true that SOME "monster managers are so far above us in the food chain that it doesn't matter." However, others are front-line supervisors and mid-level managers who are hurting bottom-line productivity and profits -- which is what the C-Suite ultimately cares about most for Wall Street, shareholders, and corporate bad image. A company can't but a price tag on broad negative media coverage, which is why they all spend so much on PR.

    Wow @David B. Grinberg, this is a big topic..thanks for highlighting. There is another group of monster managers, the ones who play on insecurities with their mental torture hidden by the congenial facade. These are 'management psychopaths', appearing to care but really being more evil than every bad deed anyone can see. What makes them dangerous is their duplicity and skill. They can wreak havoc on the poor unsuspecting employee, based on their own narcissistic behavior.
    Your awareness of corporate challenges is incredible, and your human concern for others shows in the topics you choose to highlight David. Thanks for being a journalistic super hero David!

    #4 Any candidate will be job ready and feel the need to attend an interview after reading this book Well this books explains everything a candidate goes through before, after and during an interview. Being a coach, trainer and recruiter for more than 5 years don't be suprised when I say I simply had no clue where to start when I quit my last job. That lead me to analyze and train myself to showcase my skills in a way that others understand meaning to sell myself. I loved reading this and will share it with my candidates as I'm confident that it will add more life to the entire interview readying process. A great book Thank you @Emilia M. Ludovino

    Congratulations Fatima for your article. To β€œhear” and to β€œlisten” are two different things. Just because you can hear me, doesn’t mean that you are listening. The definition of β€œhear” is - to perceive with the ear the sound made by (someone or something), while β€œlisten” is defined as - give one’s attention to a sound. What you may interpret as a subtle difference between β€œperceive” and β€œattention” is a massive gulf in understanding. Simplified, this can be explained as – hearing with our ears but – listening with all our senses. And this kind of listening I call Emotional Listening or Third Level Listening. Emotional Listening or β€œthird level listening” means, i.e. to listen to what is said between the lines. This is a skill that is practiced by coaches globally and, taught in my executive coaching programs. You explain it very well. :). Have a wonderful day!
