Write for LinkedIn

Senior English major Mary Kate Fields, a Campus Editor for LinkedIn, is looking for students who can publish articles on LinkedIn's new student publishing platform.

Here’s Mary Kate’s message:
I was chosen to be a LinkedIn Campus Editor to help bring more #StudentVoices to LinkedIn. I'm in the process of putting together a group of people/working with peers who want to share their knowledge, experiences and insights on LinkedIn.

With more than 400 million members globally and 122 million in the U.S., LinkedIn's blogging platform is a great way to build your professional brand, gain visibility among people in your desired industry and write your way to opportunity.

Plus, in working with you, your posts will be considered for even wider distribution in relevant channels and on LinkedIn's newsreader Pulse.

For more information, including tips and writing ideas, check out LinkedIn's Student Publishing Site here.

I’m happy to edit your drafts, discuss ideas or answer other questions you might have. Once you’re ready to publish, go here:  http://www.linkedin.com/today/post/author/createArticle.

Be sure to add #StudentVoices at the bottom of your LinkedIn post for possible promotion.

If you want to see what other students are writing, check out the Student Voices channel here.
