The bizarre world of recruiting

Linkedin is a weird place. You upload your work history, connect with people (some of which you worked with), and get contacted by companies looking for people with your profile. At least that’s what it should be. The reality, however, is a little different. Let’s start with the work history. Besides adding a detailed list of my work experience (both the companies I worked for and the side projects I had) recruiters always ask me for a good ol’ CV in PDF format.
