I left a job with the intention of taking 6-12 months off to take some trips, work on the house, and execute an ambitious volunteer project. Just to be safe, though, I maintained a Premium LinkedIn account to a Premium account, specifically, Job Seeker.
I went about the things I wanted to do and exactly 12 months later I ramped up my job search. I set up various searches and alerts, reached out to a select group of contacts, and started going through my personal contact entries and evaluating whether or not to add them as LinkedIn connections.
I was a job search machine. Then I hit a speed bump. Less than two weeks into March, I started seeing a strange message and most of my search results blurred out. Had I broken the Internet?
