To Promote “Taken 3,” Liam Neeson Will Endorse Your “Particular Set Of Skills” On LinkedIn

Liam Neeson is badass, and exactly the kind of person I would want to have my back should I find myself in trouble — or unemployed. The actor, who plays ex-CIA operative Brian Mills in the “Taken” movies is hosting a contest to promote “Taken 3,” giving fans the chance to have Brian Mills endorse their “particular set of skills.” Imagine the amount of profile views the winner will get from having Liam Neeson tell the world how proficient they are in Photoshop and Microsoft Excel. I WANT TO WIN.

To enter, all you have to do is follow this page on LinkedIn to be entered. The contest runs through December 23, and the winner will be announced the week of January 4, when Neeson will record the video for the lucky winner. [Mashable]

Instead of photographing her in professional clothing Florencia wore an off-the-shoulder shirt with tousled hair. She looks kind of like an ’80s teen idol. Keep reading »

It seems odd to recruit “beautiful women” seeking millionaires through LinkedIn, a professional website, where you have no idea whether a person is single or not. What if I was dating someone. I mean, I’m not, but WHAT IF? Keep reading »
