LinkedIn Introduces Identity Verification For Indian Users; Here's What It Means

LinkedIn, a prominent professional social networking site, debuted a new verification function on Wednesday that allows users to gain the trust of other users through a new verification process. Ashutosh Gupta, Country Manager at LinkedIn India, revealed the ID verification function in a blog post, saying that users can utilise their Aadhar Card for the verification procedure. Linkedin implemented the feature in order to acquire the trust of its over 100 million users. Furthermore, social networking networks have long been vulnerable to a variety of frauds, including LinkedIn, where individuals pose as a business and employment-focused platform and prey on job searchers. To take on these issues, the LinkedIn verification ID would be a perfect tool. According to Ashutosh Gupta, country manager at LinkedIn India, "Having an ID verification means that the individual's government-issued ID is verified by one of LinkedIn's verification partners." Speaking of the specifics, ID verification in India is handled by HyperVerge, a third-party identity verification service that utilises DigiLocker, an online wallet for Indian government-issued IDs like the Aadhaar Card. Users who have a valid Aadhaar number and an Indian phone number can use the ID verification service. "You'll have a better chance of discovering the

Here's the No. 1 way to sound smarter when making small talk, say Harvard and Wharton …

Making small talk with someone you've just met can be terrifying. Common sense tells us we need to convince the other person that we're smart, so we casually drop our job title, education and accomplishments. But it turns out this is exactly the wrong approach.While writing my new book, "NEXT! The Power of Reinvention in Life and Work," I interviewed scores of people who pivoted in their careers, all of whom had to develop new contacts to make their move. Then I spoke to social psychologists about how to make those connections most effectively. I found that the answer is a lot simpler than you think: ask for advice.Seeking advice actually makes you look smarterIn a series of studies, Harvard and Wharton researchers asked students to solve brain teasers with a partner.Some were told they would be judged solely on the accuracy of their answers. Others were told they would be judged according to how good of an impression they made on their partner.The students were given three options for communicating with their partner:Saying, "Hey, can you give me any advice?"Saying, "Hey, I hope you did well."Saying nothing at all.Unsurprisingly, students rated on their accuracy eagerly asked for advice. But those

Here's why job recruiters ghost you and how to cope – New York Post

We’ve heard it said that your job is not your life, but when you’ve been looking for work for months without landing many interviews, let alone offers, it can be devastating. Consider San Diego resident Hannah Pitman. The talent acquisition specialist has been applying to between 75 to 100 jobs every week since last November, and has shared on LinkedIn that while she’s had a handful of interviews, what she’s mostly received is “a lot of radio silence.” Her situation is not unique. Another LinkedIn user, Veronica R. Chiesi Brown, reported that out of the 174 jobs she has applied to, she has scored three interviews, three rejections (2%), 32 (18%) auto-generated rejections and on the rest (80%) she was ghosted. It’s as if these women were sending the applications into black holes. “I am not begging for a job. I just want to be kept on the radar . . . Feeling forgotten has been hard but I am resilient, and I am choosing not to let tough times in the job market get me down,” wrote Pitman. That’s the right attitude, especially when you consider what many aren’t aware of — that for the most part, humans are to blame. This

CIA director made unannounced trip to Beijing last month – Axios

Burns arrives to testify before the Senate Intelligence Committee in March. Photo: Drew Angerer/Getty ImagesCIA director Bill Burns made an unannounced trip to China last month, a U.S. official confirmed to Axios. Why it matters: The trip to Beijing, which was first reported by the FT, was part of the administration's efforts to stabilize relations after February's spy balloon incident."Last month, Director Burns traveled to Beijing where he met with Chinese counterparts and emphasized the importance of maintaining open lines of communication in intelligence channels," the U.S. official said.National security adviser Jake Sullivan undertook a similar mission last month when he traveled to Vienna to meet Beijing's top diplomat, Wang Yi, though the White House announced that meeting at the time.State of play: While both sides have expressed a desire to keep relations from deteriorating further, Beijing blames Washington for their current state and has declined multiple requests for high-level meetings.Secretary of State Tony Blinken's planned trip to Beijing has still not been rescheduled, and Chinese Defense Minister Li Shangfu declined to meet his U.S. counterpart Lloyd Austin in Singapore — though the fact that Li is under U.S. sanctions might have been a factor.Secretary of Commerce Gina Raimondo did

Kentucky Derby home Churchill Downs suspends races following 12 horse deaths – Axios

The first turn at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky, in May 2020. Photo: Andy Lyons/Getty ImagesChurchill Downs, the historic home of the Kentucky Derby, said Friday it will suspend racing operations for several weeks after 12 horses died and others were injured at the Louisville racetrack over the past month.Driving the news: Churchill Downs said the suspension, which takes effect June 7, is necessary to review its safety and surface protocols.Races for its current spring-summer meet will go forward this weekend, while the remaining races will be relocated to Ellis Park in Henderson, Kentucky.What they're saying: The racetrack said it "has seen an unusual number of horse injuries over the previous month," and that initial investigations by horse-racing authorities had not identified a "single factor" behind the deaths.Still, Churchill Downs said it was relocating races "in an abundance of caution, and in alignment with a recommendation from" the Horseracing Integrity and Safety Authority to allow for a "a top-to-bottom review of all safety and surface protocols and integrity measures in collaboration and consultation with nationwide experts.""What has happened at our track is deeply upsetting and absolutely unacceptable," Bill Carstanjen, CEO of Churchill Downs, said in a statement Friday.The big picture:
