How We Hire
Every job at LinkedIn is unique, and so is our hiring experience. We’re here to help you along the way.
The LinkedIn hiring process
Our top priority is facilitating a fair, inclusive and transparent process for every candidate. Here's how we do it:
Search open jobs to find the right opportunity for you and express your interest by submitting an application.
Once your application is received, our recruiting team will review your application to see if you meet all basic and some preferred qualifications listed on the job description.
In the meantime, you can get to know the LinkedIn platform: See online course
A member of our recruiting team manages every job opening. If you meet the qualifications and are selected to move forward, they'll reach out to schedule a call to learn more about you and ask some basic questions.
After the initial call, we may also schedule a video call with the hiring manager or another team member. At this stage, they’ll ask more detailed questions about your experience, skills, and technical expertise.

If you are selected to move to the interview phase, you’ll next meet with several more team members. Each interview will focus on a different skill area and is a great opportunity to meet new people, learn more about the role and ask any questions you have.
Depending on the role, you may be asked to present a case study or do a whiteboard exercise too - your recruiter will share everything you need to know ahead of time. Every interviewer takes notes to share back with the hiring team.
Please note: Our offices are currently closed in many locations based on local health authority and government guidance. Therefore our hiring process has moved to a fully virtual experience with interviews and case studies conducted via video chat or phone unless otherwise advised to ensure the safety of our candidates and employees.

In the final stage, the hiring team will assess each candidate for their potential to succeed in the job. They may need several weeks to reach a decision. We appreciate your patience during this stage – we know it isn’t easy to wait.
If you haven’t been selected, don’t feel discouraged. We hope you'll apply again.
If you are offered the job, congrats! We can’t wait for you to join us at LinkedIn to help us connect the world to opportunity.
