LinkedIn Hosts 1st Successful Diversity Recruiting Event with HBCU CONNECT!

Posted By: Temeka Wilson on February 25, 2022

Wednesday, February 23rd, LinkedIn and HBCU CONNECT partnered to host a virtual diversity recruiting event. LinkedIn is a platform primarily used for professional networking and career development, but has also created a marketplace and tools for education. LinkedIn is ranked as the #1 trusted social platform and the Data & Machine Learning team is responsible for keeping all of its members safe.

At the virtual event, attendees heard from leaders, including:
• Karin Kimbrough – Chief Economist
• Tim Jurka – Senior Director of Engineering
• Jenelle Bray – Director of Engineering
• Justin Dyer – Senior Staff Data Scientist

With almost 200 attendees at the event, candidates learned that LinkedIn isn’t a company that just discusses diversity, inclusion, and belonging, but is very intentional on being always that culture. LinkedIn strives to always put members first with 6 people hired every minute across its platform.

Good insight was also shared on how to potentially land an interview:
• Are you interested in applying today? Apply below:
o Artificial Intelligence Engineer - https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/2899517...
o Data Scientist - https://www.linkedin.com/jobs/view/2904866...
• The Recruiting Team will be sending out confirmation emails to everyone that applies on next steps
• Be sure to connect with the above speakers on LinkedIn!

You can also view the event’s recording at the top of the page.
