Trying to sell yourself without coming across as a jerk is hard enough. Start throwing in buzzwords and credentials and it's just about impossible. Joseph & Joseph Productions takes the absurdity a step further by reading LinkedIn bios out loud in their YouTube video posted Tuesday, June 2. It exposes just how horrible trying to "cultivate a personal brand" really is.
"Come inside my brand," a vested man beckons at the video's start. Keep watching and you'll suffer through even more gems like:
>> "Ray Fisher KNOWS how to make an impression."
>> "What makes Darren Hill so special?"
>> "I rebuilt the homes of the survivors of an avalanche."
>> "I'm a tie-loathing adventurer and thrill-seeker."
Moral of the story? The next time you update your LinkedIn profile, take a second and read it out loud. You'll thank us later.
