Reading Time: 3 minutes


Today we’re diving into one of my favorite platforms… LinkedIn! 

With 900 million members and an 18% increase in sessions year over year, more and more people are looking to LinkedIn to navigate this new world of work – from getting hired, to connecting, learning, and building personal thought leadership.

Did you know that LinkedIn has an incredible resource hub for nonprofits? And that you could be using LinkedIn to connect with future donors?

It’s a pleasure to bring in Jazmin Garcia, a Nonprofit Talent Account Executive at LinkedIn, for a super tactical conversation. We talk about LinkedIn’s growth, all the new features you need to try, and how you can easily 6x your engagement.

  • The incredible changes Jazmin has witnessed on LinkedIn over the last 5-10 years, including new features that recently rolled out. The headline? LinkedIn is becoming a “skill space”.

Notable Quotes from Jazmin

“We have a team of economists constantly looking at the numbers. In terms of engagement, when it comes to our more than 900 million members, we’re seeing sessions increase 18% year over year, with members and customers continuing to look to LinkedIn to navigate this new world of work, connecting, learning, selling, and getting hired. And over 80% of our member growth is coming from the US.”

“What we have seen in this new future of work is that job seekers are seeking jobs differently. And then the employers are seeking the job seekers differently, too. And I think the headline there is skill space, without question. It’s the new currency. People are increasingly investing in how they build their skills, changing their roles. LinkedIn Learning offers over 20,000 courses in 11 languages.”
