LinkedIn Profile Error

LinkedIn in error has added a previous job role to my list which I have never held.This evening I received a notification via LinkedIn about some contacts within my immediate reach which I didn’t know about. After sending out a couple of invitations which make sense to have within my network, I clicked into my profile to see the above item listed.

In the last approximately three years with BreakFree and subsequently Stella Resorts Group, my roles have been within the realm of development and business analysis. As you can imagine, I was a little shocked to see an incomplete previous position listed on my profile.

At a guess, this error must have happened in the last month or so; as I don’t remember it being there the last time I logged in. What is peculiar, is that the title of the position is for the right company and overlaps with my time with BreakFree and Stella Resorts Group. If it was going to error in this fashion, I would have expected a totally random job from an unrelated business or industry.

I don’t have a way of explaining it, so for the moment it has been removed and I’ll be keeping an eye on it in the future.
