I shared the post below a few days ago and wanted to follow up as I’ve just closed the form.
The big change this year is that we’ve gone from 30 requests to 77. While this is a nice opportunity for me to e-meet so many of you for the first time, it is also substantially more than I expected.
The next step is on me – I will need to find ~50 colleagues/teammates who’ve still got subscriptions they can give away. I expect to have an update for all who submitted the form by Mar-15. And, I will do my best.
Finally, for the many of you who took the time to share context or write lovely thoughtful notes, thank you. Much appreciated.
I work at LinkedIn. Our vision is to provide economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce. One of our initiatives is called the #plusonepledge where every member of the LinkedIn team helps someone in their network with finding economic opportunity – finding a new job, a new contract, a new client, and so on.
As part of this initiative, I am able to gift 6 months of free LinkedIn Premium Careers subscription to 4 folks who are actively seeking a new opportunity. For example, LinkedIn Premium could be helpful if you’d like the ability to get in touch (selectively :)) with recruiters and hiring managers of jobs you believe you are a fit for.
After posting this last year, I received ~30 requests and ended up requesting (and receiving) help from a bunch of wonderful colleagues. I intend to do the same this year and will do my best to share these subscriptions with as many of you as possible – on a first come, first serve basis.
My only request is that you fill this form by Fri, 2/28. I’ll aim to get back to you by mid-March.
Job seeking is a tough process and, if you choose to use one of these subscriptions, I hope it’ll help you in some small way. If it doesn’t, I’d appreciate feedback on what we could have done better too.
