Before applying to LinkedIn 🧑‍💻

Before applying to LinkedIn

You will have to do some things before applying to LinkedIn, and in this section, I will tell you all about it.

First, ensure which domain you want to work in once you have chosen the profession. Look at the requirements for the role you wish to apply for. Start preparing for that and if the job you are applying for involves coding, start taking up coding challenges and attending hackathons and other coding events.

Secondly, make your portfolio as strong as possible with all the work samples and projects you have done that relate to the job you are applying for.

Lastly, make a strong resume and cover letter and be prepared to apply for the job and the interview process that comes after

How do I apply for LinkedIn? 🕵️

Applying to LinkedIn

LinkedIn is a very huge company that is based in Sunnyvale, California. It has offices all over the world in large numbers, and there are thousands of people applying for LinkedIn every day. Only a few get through it and step into those offices, and we would like you to be one of them and follow the steps mentioned throughout the article, and you are good to go!

Before you apply for any company, check the company's background, the work they have done, and the people they are associated with. Of course, I agree that LinkedIn is a vast company, and tracking employees is difficult. But, you can choose the office you want to apply to and start connecting with them and talking to them.

Where will you do this? You do it on LinkedIn! Yes, you heard me right. You start applying to LinkedIn by connecting and contacting a fellow LinkedIn talent acquisition or Human Resources Personnel to gather information about the applications. 

By doing this, you can get guidance from an employee working in that company, hear their interview experience and take tips from them to ace your interview. And most importantly, you will meet new people who once dreamed of getting into LinkedIn, and they did. They can be those motivational speakers to you.

After doing this, of course, because the company is so vast, and you happen to have just met them, you will not be able to get a referral. You will have to apply directly on the Website.

Applying on the Website 🖥️

Applying on Website

First, go to the LinkedIn Careers website.

LinkedIn Career Homepage

You can scroll down to look at the employees' experiences and the benefits of joining LinkedIn.

Next, you have to go through the tabs on the navigation bar to learn about Linkedin in detail, their teams, and their locations. 

You have to go through their resources to stay updated about the company's events and new achievements. This will help you know the company better and make you look good in front of your interviewers. They will ask you about the company to know you are up to date with them and their new improvements. This is one of the things that'll make them feel like you are their ideal candidate. 

You will land on this page if you click "students" on the navigation bar. Here you can apply for internships and entry-level jobs. So if you are using LinkedIn straight out of college or while still in college, this page will be helpful to you.

LinkedIn Student Career

The "Search jobs" button can be clicked if you have industry experience.

Search Jobs page

You can choose the location, your domain keyword on the top, and the job you want to apply for.

Job description page

Here, I have chosen a job, for example. It shows all the details about the job given and the level of the applicants they want.

When you click on apply, it'll open an easy-apply link. The easy-apply link is a button on the LinkedIn job description where you can apply directly in the form presented when the button is clicked. There is no hassle filling out many forms or sending emails to the recruiter.

Once this is done, your application is sent, and all you have to do is wait for the reply.

Applying via On-Campus 🏫


Before you go on applying, let's first understand what it is:

On-campus Hiring happens within your college or university; companies come to your college or university in the "Placement Drive." Placement drive means that the company will go there, set up a seminar and a few aptitude tests, and hire students per their performance. 

On-Campus jobs are applied in college. Your college will have a Training and Placement Officer (TPO). During the final year of college, you will be given placement training and will start to get updates on job openings. You can also request companies with your TPO.

Ensure you have more than 60% in your bachelor's, 10th, and 12th classes. Have no backlogs when you are applying for the jobs.

Applying via Off-Campus 💻

Off-campus applying

Now that we know about On-campus jobs let's see about off-campus.

Off-campus Hiring is where students hunt for jobs independently.

The application process is the same. Students will have to write an aptitude test and coding challenge. Still, the only difference is that the student CVs get through the resume round quickly compared to off-campus ones.

Ensure you have more than 60% in your bachelor's, 10th, and 12th classes. Have no backlogs when you are applying for the jobs.

LinkedIn Recruitment Process 🧐

Applying is step one of the whole process you will be entering. You need to understand the process.

Recruitment Process

You can also get a phone interview before the online round to ask some resume-related questions.

The technical round can happen in 2 rounds, or you will have to attend all 4 rounds. It depends on your performance in the rounds you follow.

Off-campus happens in the same way as well. You will have to apply on the Website offering Linkedin jobs and wait for the link for the test. And then, follow the steps above.

Internship Opportunities at LinkedIn 🏢


As mentioned in the "Applying on the Website" section, you can go to the Students and choose Student Internships. You can select your domain there, and if there is any opportunity, you can apply to it.

You can always connect with an employee on LinkedIn working in the domain you want to apply. And you can show what you have done so far in terms of projects and activities you have done while you are studying. They can ask you why you want to work on LinkedIn. They can guide you through getting an internship at LinkedIn.

Hiring Events 🥳

Searching for events

There is this website Meetup. Meetup is a platform where you can search for events and attend them. The events can be online or offline. Just search for "LinkedIn" on the search bar, and you can choose an event in the list. Search for events on Coding Ninjas. You can also search for these events on Facebook events or just by searching on google.

Events Calendar

Another way you can attend hiring events is by looking up newspapers, magazines, and hoardings for "Job Fairs." Job fairs are vast fairs where every company puts up a stall. You can go to the LinkedIn stall to enquire about their job opportunities and apply to them on the spot.

Prepare for Interviews 🧑


You can prepare for interviews online. Start by making your basics strong. Read books about interviews and working in a company like LinkedIn. Read blogs like Job in a Product-Based CompanyRoadmap to crack product-based companies Off-campusHacks to Prepare for Off-campus placements in 2021, and many more.

It is essential to know that it is not only your coding skills that matter in this process of getting the job. Recruiters judge you by communicating with them, i.e., without breaking in between or repeating yourself and how you present yourself and your projects. Your body language matters a lot while you are speaking to the interviewer.

Again you can read books and blogs to improve these skills. Here are some blog recommendations: Hard Work vs. Luck: What will help you crack an interviewJob application slip-ups to AvoidDOs and DON'Ts While Appearing for a Technical Interview, and many more.

Once you are confident enough about these skills, you can prepare for technical interviews. You can start with coding challenges online and practice your codes on Coding Ninjas Studio. On Code Studio, you will get a problem a day, and you can solve them and improve your coding skills.
