Applications For New Class of LinkedIn Campus Editors Now Open
August 21, 2017
There’s a lot you can do on LinkedIn to help you get ahead in your career and find your way in to new opportunities — regularly writing on LinkedIn and sharing your experiences and perspective is certainly one of them. It’s a great way to build up your reputation on a topic and get noticed by others in your industry who have similar interests.
With this in mind, in 2015 we launched our Campus Editor program, enabling university students to begin writing and growing their own active communities on LinkedIn alongside business leaders like Bill Gates and Arianna Huffington.
Our Campus Editors operate much like journalists, working with our editorial team to pitch ideas, write and edit articles, and publish stories on LinkedIn. As LinkedIn ambassadors, we also encourage Campus Editors to rally their peers on campus to write about things that matter to them. This program has helped many Campus Editors communicate and connect with a variety of professionals and has unlocked everything from internships and job offers to speaking event invites and re-publishing offers from publications like the Financial Times.
And today, we’re excited to say we’re accepting applications for our next class of Campus Editors.
To sweeten the deal for this year’s Campus Editor class, each student will receive a Premium upgrade, giving them access to personalized information on LinkedIn, including job opportunities and much more. Campus Editors will also receive access to LinkedIn Learning, which offers courses that can help students learn new skills and gain a competitive advantage.
Interested? Here’s what we’re looking for:
You love creating and finding great content
You want to understand how content creation and distribution works at scale
You have a deep belief that the student voice matters and want to help bring those perspectives to a wide audience
You are ambitious, driven, passionate and collaborative
You are deadline-driven and committed to completing tasks
If this sounds like a fit, submit an application today! Applications are open until the end of September.
We can’t wait to welcome our next class of #StudentVoices.
