Why We Do What We Do: Celebrating LinkedIn Members on Our 12th Anniversary

May 5, 2015


Since the day I walked into the LinkedIn office in the summer of 2010, I felt a buzz in the air that was almost electric. I soon realized that energy was the passion of hundreds of employees working toward a common purpose - our vision of creating economic opportunity for every member of the global workforce. At LinkedIn, each day that our members move their careers forward in big or small ways, is considered a win for them. And a reason to celebrate.

So today, on our 12th anniversary, we want to celebrate our members – and thank them – for being part of our journey. We’re inspired every single day by their accomplishments, ambition, optimism – and smarts.

Over the years, I’ve heard countless stories of members who’ve transformed their careers and their lives through LinkedIn. We’re honored to be a part of those stories. Here are just 12 of the many stories – and people – that remind us why we do what we do:

As we set out on another year at LinkedIn, I’d like to thank each of you for making LinkedIn part of your professional life. If you have a story about how LinkedIn has changed your career, we’d love to hear it. Please take a moment to
