How To Ask For Help (And How Not To)

Eli Amdur

Recently I got a LinkedIn invitation from a woman who wrote, "Eli, please see what you can do to help me become marketable again, thank you." I’m still trying to figure this one out because, you see, I have no idea who this woman is.

Her invitation said that she and I are colleagues at a company I’ve never heard of, the picture on her profile was that of a total stranger to me, and I’m not even sure I know what someone with her title does for a living.

But she wants me to help make her become marketable. Again!...
