Actually – I think it’s kind of cool. By looking at your profile they learn more than in a 30 – 60 second phone conversation. Then, if they call you, it will be a much better connection – electronically and professionally.
I am so with Kay on thinking that the more info they get prior to talking the easier the conversation may go. After all it’s not really about the small talk, it’s about getting something accomplished with the help of someone else.
