LinkedIn has today rolled out its latest #InItTogether brand campaign that highlights the power of community in helping professionals stay productive and find opportunities in these uncertain times.
Inspired by LinkedIn’s community giving and getting help from each other, the brand campaign features real stories of Australian LinkedIn members adapting and leaning on their networks to advance their career.
“In this distributed work environment, connecting with your community matters now more than ever. The brand campaign is inspired by these everyday stories of our members reaching out to connect with others, generating conversations and gaining meaningful opportunities. Small acts can make a big difference. Our hope with this campaign is that it will encourage more members to reach out and take that first step”, said LinkedIn Australia and New Zealand head of brand marketing & communications Shiva Kumar.
The campaign features stories of Giselle Jesse who lost her job due to COVID-19 and reached out to her LinkedIn network asking if they knew of any job opportunities. Neil Edgar saw her LinkedIn post and got in touch with Giselle, which led her to secure a job at his company.
