A few years back, when doing an occasional search for “Corry Haines” on Google, I found that LinkedIn had become the number one hit. This bothered me for a few reasons, chief among them that I don’t like to define myself by my employment, but also that it was the least interesting site I used.

Because I was employed at the time, and had never really put much effort into building my profile/connections, I decided to delete it on the spot. As a bonus, the deletion considerably lowered the amount of spam I got, through LinkedIn, email, and other sources.

LinkedIn has since become a more indispensable tool for recruiting teams, so it may affect future job applications, but I haven’t had any issues yet.
