How to Contact LinkedIn

It may so happen that you encounter a problem while using LinkedIn, and nothing that you find in LinkedIn's help center is any use in resolving it. In that case, you can try contacting LinkedIn's customer service team directly.  Here's how to do it.

To contact LinkedIn customer service

  1. Go to in your web browser and log in.

  2. Click on the Me menu in the top-right corner, and click Help Center.

    Access LinkedIn Help Center

  3. Try searching for a help topic for your current issue by clicking in the search bar and typing keywords related to your problem. Or, alternately, just click any help topic listed that is related to your problems.

    LinkedIn Help Center main page

  4. If you don't find a topic that helps you, you may want to try to contact LinkedIn directly. In many cases, the website makes it diffficult for you to actually contact them, because they would rather you try to solve the problem yourself. However, if you can't seem to do that, or still need help, from the Help Center, click on any help page topic, scroll to the bottom of the page, and then click Contact Us on the bottom menu bar.

    Contact Us button

    NOTE: You cannot do this from the main Help Center page. You have to navigate to another page in an attempt to solve your own problem. On the main Help Center page, the space where the Contact Us button normally appears will be blank.

  5. Click in the text box and type a description of your issue. Then click Next.

  6. As you type, LinkedIn will (probably) make suggestions of Help Center topics you could read that may solve your problem. To read any topic, click on its title. To continue with the contact form, click Next.

  7. From there, the rest of the contact form will appear, and you simply need to fill in the fields, and explain your problem. Click in any text box to answer a question, and select the appropriate options from the drop-down menus. On this form, you will need to enter:

    – An alternative email address (optional)
    – Issue type
    – Which LinkedIn app or website you were using when you experienced the issue(s)
    – Which device you used when you experienced the problem(s)
    – Your question: your chance to type whatever you like to best explain your problem
    – Add an attachment that shows the issue, or anything that may help LinkedIn customer service (optional)

    When you're all finished, click Submit.

    Detailed description of issue in contact form

From there, watch your email account(s), and see if you get a response from LinkedIn. Remember to be as detailed as possible, as the more information you enter here, the better your chances of receiving a prompt response that solves your problem!

Other ways to contact LinkedIn customer service

LinkedIn email

You can try to contact LinkedIn by email at
However, according to this help page, it may not work, or you may not receive an answer.

LinkedIn customer service on Twitter

LinkedIn's customer service department can be reached on Twitter at "@LinkedIn_Help".
Contacting a business on Twitter is often a great way to get a response, as it puts your issue out in the public sphere for everyone to see – meaning LinkedIn would want to solve your problem as quickly as possible so others see their great customer service.

LinkedIn phone number

You can try contacting LinkedIn's customer service department by phone at these numbers:
However, some have mentioned that you may just be redirected to LinkedIn's online help options.

How to Post Jobs on LinkedIn

You don't have to use LinkedIn solely to find jobs for yourself. If you're running a company of your own, you can also use LinkedIn to find people to hire. And, as we demonstrated in our tutorial on how to find a job on LinkedIn, you can have people apply for the job right on LinkedIn using their profiles!

Note that posting a job on LinkedIn costs money, and can cost additional money if you want to advertise your job posting and get it more exposure. You may also need to have a company page on LinkedIn, too, and we can help you set a company page up if you need some pointers.

To post a job on LinkedIn

  1. Go to in your web browser and log in.

  2. Click Work in the menu across the top, and then click Post a Job from the drop-down menu.

  3. On the next screen, enter the name of your company, the job title you're hiring for, and the location of the job. Then click Start Job Posting.

    After that, you will need to sign into LinkedIn Recruiter, using the same email address and password you use for your regular LinkedIn account.

  4. On the next screen, you can set up your job posting by filling in the job posting form. Simply click in any text box and type your answer, or select any option from a drop-down menu. Any field marked with an asterisk (*) is mandatory.

    You will need to fill out the following fields:

    – Job function (choose up to three)
    – Employment type (choose: Full-time, Part-time, Contract, Temporary, Volunteer, or Other)
    – Company industry (choose up to three)
    – Seniority level (choose: Not applicable, Internship, Entry level, Associate, Mid-Senior level, Director, Executive)
    – Job description
    – Company description (will already be filled out if you have a LinkedIn Company Page)
    – Select skills required for the job
    – How you would like people to apply for the position 

    When you've reviewed your answers, click Continue at the bottom of the page.

    If you're not ready to post the job yet, and want to think about the requirements/description, click Save a Draft at the bottom of the page.

  5. On the next screen, you will be asked if you want to advertise your job to get it more exposure on LinkedIn. Assuming that you don't, just click Continue. If you do want to pay additional money to sponsor your job, and have it appear on the main job search navigation page, click Yes, I'd Like to Sponsor My Job before selecting Continue.

  6. On the next screen, you'll decide how to pay for your job posting. First, click on the number of job postings that you wish to buy. The window below will change to reflect the cost, depending on your choice.

    Select number of LinkedIn job postings

  7. Next, decide how you are going to pay for your posting(s).

    Enter billing information for LinkedIn job posting

    First, click either the button beside the credit card logos or the button beside the PayPal logo to decide whether you will pay by credit card or PayPal.  (If you decide to pay by PayPal, click Continue to PayPal, log in, and follow the instructions.  You will be led back to this page eventually.)

    Assuming that you want to pay by credit card, click in each of the boxes and drop-down menus highlighted in the screenshot above and type in or select (as they appear on your card):

    – Your first name
    – Your last name
    – Your card number
    – The month that your card expires
    – The year that your card expires
    – Your card's security code (move your cursor over the graphic for help)
    – The country that issued your credit card
    – Your mailing code

    Once you've filled out this information, click Review Order. On the next screen, confirm your order and submit it.

Once you have posted your job, you will receive a confirmation email. You will also receive: 

  • Your job posting will remain live on LinkedIn for 30 days
  • The ability to edit your posting if something changes
  • A shortlist of candidates on LinkedIn who are qualified to fill your position
  • 5 free messages to contact candidates you are interested in
  • Tools to track and share applicants
  • Analytics on your applicants and the users viewing your postings


That's how to post jobs on LinkedIn! We wish you luck in finding the person who is right for your company.

LinkedIn Company Pages

If you are interested in getting your business or company featured on LinkedIn, you will need to build yourself a compelling and appealing page to attract the millions of users who log in each day looking for work. In this tutorial, we’ll explain what company pages are, and how to get started adding your company to LinkedIn.

What are LinkedIn company pages?

LinkedIn company pages are profiles on LinkedIn that represent not individual business professionals, but entire companies.  They are a way for companies to engage with the business community on LinkedIn, offer job opportunities, and just generally let people know what the company is about.

How to create a company page on LinkedIn

  1. Go to in your web browser and log in.

  2. Move your mouse cursor over Work in the menu across the top. Scroll down to the bottom of the menu, and click Create a Company Page at the bottom of the menu.

    LinkedIn Company Pages menu

  3. From there, fill out the form with your company's information, including your company name and a LinkedIn public URL. Click the check box indicating you are the official representative of the company, and then click Create Page.

    Create new Company Page form

    The public URL will generate automatically as you type the name of your company, but simply click in the box to edit.

From there, you will be taken to a welcome page that teaches you about your new company page. Click Learn More to take a tour around LinkedIn Company page, and click Get Started to start working on your page.

How to edit a LinkedIn company page

As soon as you sign up for a Company Page, you will be taken to the editing mode by default. But we'll show you how to edit your Company Page assuming you just signed in to your LinkedIn account.

  1. Click Me on the menu bar, and then click Company Page: [X] on the drop-down menu (where the X is the name of your company).

    Manage LinkedIn Company Page

  2. Click Overview at the top of the page to enter editing mode.

    LinkedIn Company Page editing mode

  3. Make whatever changes are necessary to your company's information, and then click Publish in the top-right corner. If you decide you don't want to make the changes you've been working on, click Discard Edits instead.

    Publish changes

There are a variety of things you can do to make changes to your Company Page, and the more effort you put into it, the more likely your page is to engage with other LinkedIn users. Make sure you add a logo, a background photo, a company description, specialities of your company, where it's located, and your company website.

How to delete a company page on LinkedIn

You can only delete a company page on LinkedIn if you are the page's administrator, and your company has less than 10 employees. Even then, you cannot unilaterally delete a company page on LinkedIn, since such a decision affects more than just you; you must contact LinkedIn customer service.

See our article on how to contact LinkedIn customer service for instructions on what to do if you're having any issues, and learn how to fix them!


That's a bit of information about company pages on LinkedIn! Be sure you make use of this, and LinkedIn's other great features if you want to make a splash in your field, and find the resources to better yourself and achieve your career goals.

How to Find Jobs on LinkedIn

Whether you're looking for that first full-time job, a career change or reboot, or just something that can earn you money in your spare time, you can find it on LinkedIn.  You can even apply for the job right from LinkedIn, plus, your profile acts as your resume, so the paperwork's taken care of for you!

To get a job on LinkedIn

  1. Go to in your web browser and log in.

  2. Click Jobs in the menu across the top.

    LinkedIn jobs menu

  3. Here is the LinkedIn jobs portal, where you can search for jobs.

    LinkedIn job navigator homepage

    This screen will help you browse for job, and will be more and more useful to you as you continue to use LinkedIn to search for jobs. Click on the name of any job you see, or search for jobs at the top of the screen and click a suggestion to view details about the job. Remember that any job you see on this main job page is most likely sponsored (meaning the company is paying LinkedIn to advertise it).

    When you find a job that you like, click on it.

  4. Once on the job listing page, you can do things like view the job details, email the person who posted the job (you may need to be part of LinkedIn Premium to do so), follow the company on LinkedIn, or view similar jobs. If you want to apply for this job right away, click Apply Now or Apply on Company Website

    Save a job or apply to it from LinkedIn

    You can also click Save if you're interested in this job, but don't want to apply for it right now.  It will show up on your Jobs page under "Saved Jobs" at the top of the page.

  5. Your entire profile on LinkedIn will be sent to the job poster as your application. Depending on the posting, you may be taken to another page on the company's website with more details about the job. Read through these, and click a button on the bottom of the page. It will probably say something like "Apply," "Apply For This Job," or "Click Here to Apply."

    Apply for job on company page

    From there, you will need to follow the application process specific to the company, as you would if you were applying without LinkedIn. Chances are, the employer will look at your LinkedIn profile if they are considering you, so make sure it's up to standard!

  6. From the main LinkedIn page, you can use the "LinkedIn Salary" tool. This is a great resource to track salary expectations, so you can figure out the base average salary of people in your area. This will help you know what to expect in terms of salary if you are applying for jobs! To access it, simply click LinkedIn Salary at the top of the main jobs page.

    LinkedIn salary menu

All that's left to do from here watch your LinkedIn message box for a reply from the company!  If they do reply, see our LinkedIn Messages tutorial to learn how to send them a message back!  You may just be the person they're looking for!

That's how to find and apply for jobs on LinkedIn!  Good luck!
