Sexton recently published a blog post listing the eight biggest mistakes people make with their LinkedIn profile photos, and says avoiding these mistakes could dramatically increase the chances of landing your dream job.
One Page Slides The oldie: It’s high time to realize that it should go in your computer’s archive folder! Bear in mind that your picture should be recent, where you would look like your actual self. LinkedIn is not the right place for it. It’s probably good to tone things down a little and eliminate the party hype. Gloomy, dark, or photoshopped pictures where your face is hardly visible should be completely avoided. If you think your picture would work well for a dating website, then it’s absolutely not proper for LinkedIn.

Women spoke of serious incidents such as being exposed to pornographic material, to being physically propositioned and referred to as ‘fresh meat’, and to behaviours bordering on gross misconduct or even sexual assault. Bullying and harassment was reported by one in five staff, with the perpetrators being almost the same figure for being at the hands or a colleague or a manager.

Xiaolang Zhang worked on Apple’s driverless car project but allegedly planned to move to Chinese autonomous vehicle start-up Xiaopeng Motors, the company says in court documents.
He was arrested at San Jose airport, California, on 7 July. The FBI has charged him with stealing trade secrets. Xiaopeng Motors says it did not receive any “sensitive information” from Mr Zhang and said it was co-operating with the FBI. However, after visiting China in April he told his supervisor he planned to move to the country to work for Xiaopeng Motors.
The supervisor informed Apple’s security team, which found that Zhang had downloaded “copious pages of information” from secret databases and had taken hardware from its autonomous vehicle lab, the court documents allege. The FBI said the data taken included “engineering schematics, technical reference manuals, and technical reports”. About 2, “core employees” have access to the technical databases Mr Zhang is accused of accessing.
Grant King faces allegations of a cover up at Origin Energy. Janie Barrett She alleges executives right up to the top, including former chief executive Grant King, who is now president of the Business Council of Australia, covered up some of the compliance failures, some of which were serious and should have been reported to the regulators and the ASX. King referred questions from Fairfax Media to Origin, which strongly refuted the claims made by McDow and vowed to fight them vigorously in court.

She alleges management told staff she was being investigated and “made stuff up”, “is going to make us lose our jobs”, “is having a mental breakdown and calling it stress leave” and “is a faker and wants to hurt us”. She alleges the disclosure to staff that she was a whistleblower without her consent was intimidating and damaged her ability to get a job.

It might sound ridiculous, but when I was offered my dream job at Refinery29, a part of me was sad that I’d have to leave my gig at Costco Wholesale. Working for the big-box store was definitively not in my long-term career plans, or why I’d moved to New York City, but in the months I spent working there, I learned a lot. I even started to love it. When I applied for a part-time job on the Costco website, I didn’t think much of it.
I’d been out of work for more than a month and my unemployment checks and freelance articles weren’t enough to pay my Manhattan apartment’s rent, let alone my other living expenses. The store was just a few blocks from my studio, so I thought working there part-time would be an easy way to earn extra money while I continued the search for full-time work in my field.
