How to Join LinkedIn with an Invitation

Enter your correct first name and last name, and create a new password for your account. Then click the Join Name's Network button.

You'll be taken to the Create a LinkedIn Profile Like (the name of your inviter). At this point, LinkedIn wants to collect some basic information it will use to create your account.

Try to pick a password that no one else can guess. You should use a combination of letters and numbers, and avoid commonly used passwords like your name, the word “password,” a string of letters or numbers that are next to each other on the keyboard (for example, “qwerty”), or a password that you use on many other sites.

Complete the fields presented on the Create a LinkedIn Profile page to tell LinkedIn your current employment status, company name, job title, industry, country, and ZIP code.

In the first set of radio buttons, you can choose between three options to identify your current employment status: employed, job seeker, or a student.

Confirm your country of residence by selecting your country from the drop-down list provided, and then enter your ZIP or postal code in the box provided.
