Today marks the end of my journey at LinkedIn. Nearly seven and a half years ago, I joined LinkedIn as a new college graduate and realized a dream to join a large company as a Site Reliability Engineer. Over that time I have had the privilege of wearing many different hats both inside and outside of the SRE organization. I have been lucky to make some amazing friends over my time at LinkedIn and work on some really fun and challenging problems. I have learnt a lot about what it means to be an engineer but also how to connect with my peers. A special thank you to some amazing people who have been a part of my journey; Nina Mushiana, Doris Tong, Michelle Carrega, David Cintz, Benjamin Purgason, Ashi Sareen & Lauren Jolda. Thank you to everyone else who has been a part of my time at LinkedIn.
Recruiter Reachouts One of my colleagues Benjamin Kane wrote this article about how he plotted recruiter reachout’s on his LinkedIn profile. I thought it would be interesting to do this myself so here’s how it looks. The final result Observations It’s rather obvious but after I got my first full-time role at LinkedIn, my reachout’s started growing. After my promotion to Staff SRE, there was a reasonable jump on reachouts. As Covid started, reachouts became sparse In July 2020, reachouts again jumped thanks as companies started hiring again Files Python Script SQL Script plotly script
