I tried to search for "fediverse" on LinkedIn and, surprise surprise, I didn't find many promising results.
Are there any companies, startups, or enterprises working to further the #fediverse somehow? I'm sort of looking for a new employer and would like working for someone who aligns with my personal goals.
Thoughts or leads?
@ayushsharma22 "fediverse" and "linkedin" feel like two mutually incompatible environments.
I'm having a hard time imagining a company, startup or enterprise furthering the fediverse.
@Gargron I think this is much less likely. I believe most of people on the Fediverse do keep a LinkedIn account. The reasoning is:
1. Most people need to work for a living.
2. Most people on Fediverse are in tech, or tech-adjacent fields.
3. Employers in fields #2 do look at, and/or recruit through, LinkedIn.
How often one does check their LinkedIn account is another topic. Myself, probably every 6 months, to check up on friends.
As a social network, I find it disturbing.
@Korgdisso @temporal @Gargron @stunder I still keep a LinkedIn profile hoping I'll find an employer who shares my non-work tech interests, the fediverse being one of them. But LI isn't what is used to be. Now it's more self-congratulations, virtue signalling, and has almost nothing to do with tech. Which is bad because we still need a place to connect professionally since normal people still aren't on the fediverse.
This Mastodon instance is for people interested in technology. Discussions aren't limited to technology, because tech folks shouldn't be limited to technology either!
