To enter, you’ll need to create a video and post it on LinkedIn with the
hashtag #LinkedInTopCompaniesContest before the contest deadline of May 13
at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time. LinkedIn will notify the winner through an
InMail message on May 18.

What sort of video résumé will capture the attention of the platform’s
team? LinkedIn shared a few tips in its blog post:

We will be looking for videos that:

  • Showcase the ability to inspire others with the story.
  • Paint a picture of how this experience will impact your professional
  • the qualifying question in a creative fashion.
  • a strong interest and passion for the entertainment industry
    and/or social media.

The contest is LinkedIn’s effort to highlight its Top Companies list (Live
Nation is No. 27, underneath organizations such as Tesla, Amazon, Netflix,
Airbnb and IBM). It’s also a way to highlight
both organizations with LinkedIn presences—along with potential positions that might be up for grabs to LinkedIn
