    People around the world come to LinkedIn daily to strengthen their professional brands, network, and garner insights that help them better do their jobs. Recently, we discovered they’re doing something else: searching for coworkers. About 30% of members who search for people on LinkedIn view their coworkers’ profiles. Why? Good question! What we’ve heard from members is that the professional information on LinkedIn is more comprehensive and up-to-date than most companies’ intranets, and it’s easier to search for coworkers on LinkedIn — especially if you don’t have their…

But what a huge contradiction it is to claim this while spending Monday to Friday juxtaposed between catered meals and ping pong tables. Sure, I try to justify it by working…

    20 Feb 2015 | 9:00 am

The best tip I can give college-bound students and their parents is to start as early as possible. There’s a lot of work that goes into preparing for college. From standardized tests to extracurricular activities to taking the right classes, it’s…

    As an Arabic speaking professional, I know only too well the importance of conducting business in our local language. Language is, after all, essential to every aspect of our lives. We use it to inform the people around us of how we feel, what we want, and it helps us understand the world. At LinkedIn, we understand how important it is for professionals to have a platform to communicate in their own language. And as LinkedIn’s very first employee in the region back in 2012, to be able to announce today that our members can now access LinkedIn in Arabic fills me with utter pride. The launch…
