Why I ticked the “share with network” button on my new LinkedIn job

2020 has been pretty tough so far on many people – I have been very lucky. Therefore, I was hesitant about alerting my LinkedIn colleagues on my new role – would it be bragging in the current economic and political climate?

I decided that actually sharing some good news, something I have been working on for around two years (and in some ways for fifteen throughout my career), was a nice thing to do to break the bad news cycle.

So, sorry, if it was seen as a humblebrag or other faux pas but I hope it made a few people happy as we prepare for global recessions and a ‘new normal’. Obviously we have differing degrees of LinkedIn contacts in terms of level of relationship but here’s hoping more of my contacts found this interesting/useful that didn’t. And here’s hoping the majority can share good news stories over the rest of the year.
