Company Visited – LinkedIn
In continuation with the LinkedIn presentation by PES-IUP alumna Abitha Amruth, five out of the 90 students of PES-IUP batch 12 entered into a competition which resulted in a wonderful opportunity to visit the LinkedIn office in Bangalore. The selection for which was based on the most up-to-date profile, the profile with the best and original article/blog.
The winners were Rakshatha Srinivas, Nithin KS, Vyjayanthi Satish, Anand Sivasailam, Samir Saharan.
The day started with Abitha providing an introduction about LinkedIn. The students were fortunate enough to meet Deya Bandyopadhyay who is the campus recruitment manager at LinkedIn and gained insights on how students can leverage LinkedIn in their professional lives.
After an extensive Q&A session, it was lunch time and the students had lunch at LinkedIn’s state-of-the-art food court. Post lunch, they were taken on a campus tour and had opportunities to network with employees. The campus tour included the visit to their work floor, gym, cafeterias, gameroom and other facilities in their office.
Overall it was a great experience for the students to learn a lot about LinkedIn as a company and as a tool they can use to expand their professional horizons. A big thanks to the insights from Abitha Amruth. A special thanks to Deya Bandyopadhyay for spending quality time with PES IUP students and enlightening them.
