Do I really need a LinkedIn profile?

Q: Do I really need a LinkedIn profile? Context: I’m an accountant and I work in a small firm. For privacy reasons, I deleted my LinkedIn profile half a year ago. I feel uncomfortable sharing e.g. that I’m doing an MBA or that I’d like to find new opportunities.

Hi Sandra,

I’ll start my email by saying thank you. You probably don’t know why – allow me to explain:
I spoke to Iza [note: one of our Career Angels] last week and she told me that you are the author of the Challenge Accepted meetings, as well as the materials that have helped me organize my thoughts on my current professional situation. It’s taken me a full week to write this email, because I wanted to do it properly.

The Challenge Accepted group, as well as the Career Angels who attend the meetings are an inspiration for my job search – but also privately.

So far, I had lived with the – limitingconviction that a manager must advance upwards. This belief was strengthened while speaking to other managers, during interviews, talking to headhunters or even career advisors.
