LinkedIn says I should give up journalism and consider a job as a home loan officer
Recently while I was on LinkedIn, the professional networking website, a targeted advertisement popped up trying to convince me to apply for a job opening.
I know that times are tough for the journalism profession, but LinkedIn suggested a completely different field of employment. The ad (shown above) said, “Picture yourself with this new job … Loan documentation specialist” in the home loan department at Wells Fargo. The ad included my LinkedIn profile photo and name as an extra enticement.
