trainThere it goes. The 731 am express to the city. The train I normally take. Or so I thought.

There was some sort of issue, I found out later, and to preserve the schedule, the train authority expressed a train to the scene. So as I looked at the train bypass my station, but on the far track, I felt a bit empty.

I felt left at the station, so to speak.

I mentally compare the emptiness I felt at watching the train go by to the experience I fell when I read your resume cut-and-pasted on your LinkedIn profile.

Yes, right train (you).

Wrong track (a true self-branding strategy misfire) using a backward-looking resume to make others want to get to know more about you presently and your future, via factoids.

Use LinkedIn smartly and express yourself, not lazily via sentence snippets. That’s the ticket!
