Might aswell, I have nothing to hide
Why not. I've been using LinkedIn a fair bit recently
Added everyone on thread, after the first few I thought it made sense to add OcUK on a note! Wide range of jobs and locations here!
Technology Strategist / Sector CTO at Microsoft, Previously served my apprenticeship with BT which involved Staffs University via Yarnfield Park in Stone if anyone from the area was scratching their heads about my university degree!
I used linkedin a **** ton for learning about industries, connecting with people to network and get advice, or do business with so I am officially a whore, but it's useful. I hate it in many ways because it's so poorly built and the UI gives me aids with all the things that don't work properly, or consistently.
Random one; who's your most interesting connection? I have a massive mix of the most random people.
Thanks for the add and to read about the connection to Stone!
Some interesting connections on there!
I'm moving back to the UK in a couple of weeks, actually joining the ranks of Microsoft @blairw, going to one of the Xbox Studios.
Awesome, welcome to the team @mid_gen!
This is me.
This is me.
I've been with the company for 11 years, but as you can see I've done a variety of roles. Currently part of a small team running a quantitatively allocated set of funds.
Recently created a LinkedIn profile (been meaning to for ages) after reading this thread. Going through and adding in you guys soon
Happy to join with you guys.
Probs one of the few teachers here!
Fired out a load of requests!
Haha funnily enough i've just been moaning to a colleague about the Barclays application process!
Job or Bank account? Sent me a PM and I might be able to help.
Haha oh, it was bank account.
Seems to be an issue with the application process for the Premium account where it's not asking for the Joint Applicant information.
It just goes, Joint Info (tax status etc), Main Applicant Personal Info, Main Applicant Money Info, Credit Check, Submit application. Then annoyingly to switch it to a joint account i was told we both had to go into a branch within 7 days, which i'd rather not do.
If you can help i'll shoot you a PM, otherwise i'll just stick with Natwest
Sorry, not something I can help with unfortunately, try giving them a call, should be something they can sort.
