LinkedIn users’ motivation often leads to the completely opposite effect, glorifying a busy culture that isn’t. As burnout among young workers is on the rise, people have decided to post “LinkedIn roasts”, which take the usual “inspirational” posts and exaggerate them with comedic effect. Success stories don’t have to be bizarre, as no good deed goes unpunished in corporate culture, which isn’t what you would believe if LinkedIn success stories were your standards. This is exactly what some Twitter users have mocked in a viral thread. From the company founders moving to the Himalayas to appreciate a potential employee’s genius to increasing people’s workload by virtue of compassion, here are some false stories posted by people on LinkedIn.
I applied for a job and asked for 50k INR as a monthly salary but the recruiter had the budget of 50L INR so she went ahead and gave me 51L INR in Lenskart money.1L INR extra so I seek help and don’t fall for fake stories on LinkedIn.
