Dear LinkedIn self-help guru,

I have been on LinkedIn for several years now. I check it most mornings, mostly to connect with someone at my university or to share a Medium article.



Open Letters are sent to the world and beyond. Here we say what must be said, whether it is harsh, humorous, or even a teensy bit passive aggressive. Share your open letters with the world, the meta-physical, or your micro-managing boss.
