Linkedin's pop-up, the Linked Inn, to offer career advice in London

LinkedIn is set to push into the physical world for a short time only, dispensing career advice from a London pub suitably called the Linked Inn.

On the 5/6 March, the brand will take up residency in 46 Great Eastern Street, Shoreditch, London to help job hunters with practical advice and aid networking.

On board are companies, that will be actively recruiting, including UK’s top companies including John Lewis Partnership, Visa, Lloyds Banking Group, Amazon, Expedia and LADBible.

A photographer will be resident on both nights giving people the chance to perfect their professional LinkedIn profile picture.

Darain Faraz, careers expert at LinkedIn, said: “On LinkedIn the job search needn’t be arduous, in fact you can approach it as you would other social activities. By engaging your network and sharing, posting and connecting with your LinkedIn community, you can get closer the job you want.

"That’s why we’ve set up The Linked Inn - to bring this to life, and demonstrate the job seeking process needn’t be as time intensive as you might think.”

Adding to the experience, visitors can have printed drinks and 'career advice on tap'.

LinkedIn isn't the only major media brand that enjoys a pub takeover, The Drum regularly puts its roots down at top events with The Drum Arms takeover.
