"My career at LinkedIn started accidentally, but after I got my first taste of this company, I worked hard to make sure that I stayed here. It’s been six years now and I can easily see another six working here. The investment the company makes in its employees is impressive and rare. I honestly believe LinkedIn is a place where you are encouraged to dream big and resourced to make those dreams come true. From Investment Days to Wellness journeys, sustainability-focused programming, mentorship opportunities and world-class offices, there’s nothing you can’t dream of and achieve here."

I’m truly grateful for the growth opportunities, supportive culture, and welcoming space where I can be my authentic self!"

"I joined LinkedIn 8.5 years ago and it has transformed my life completely. From building strong relationships with colleagues to transforming the way I approach business challenges; LinkedIn has allowed me to grow professionally while never compromising my authenticity as an individual. As a finance professional I never felt boxed in my role because I’ve always been supported and encouraged, by both peers and business leaders within and outside my function, to lean in and add value at different parts of the business. Best of all, we walk the talk by living and breathing our culture and values and never compromising on our integrity as industry leaders. Personally, I’ve had so many life transformations throughout my journey with LinkedIn and always felt supported along the way because I never felt that I had to choose between my family, my health or my job. We work hard, play hard and get things done the right way and that’s why, after joining LinkedIn, I’ve never looked back."
