The cuts during the talks were extremely obvious
By on May, 28, 2021
The cuts during the talks were extremely obvious. It's still early in my career, but I have not heard a story, business or personal, where using LinkedIn has added value and this course spends too much time talking about it. These courses are not the best way for me to learn personally and I may have gotten more out of reading the presenter's book myself, but I feel like I learned more from reading, Dale Carnegie's "How to Win Friends & Influence People"
