There are exasperating times when I teach LinkedIn, especially when a topic needs to be demonstrated and–poof!– it’s temporarily not there anymore.
And then I tap dance my way through the void.
I’ve gotten good at the verbal explanation that the LinkedIn gnomes work behind the scenes and never give any forewarning that they are toying with the function I want to show. I explain, “Honestly, it was there a few hours ago when I last looked, but no more…”
Or like last week when LinkedIn was down for an hour, and the business of professional networking reverted to caveman grunting. But it soon came roaring back.
And so did I!
I must learn to roll with the gut punches of the LinkedIn labyrinth.
