LinkedIn today announced through its blog post that it has now had over 10 million LinkedIn members in Brazil, making the country its third largest market. The company earlier opened its office in Sao Paulo last November in order to boost its growth in the continent and today it’s nothing but the result coming in front of us. LinkedIn uncovered some interesting facts about its members in Brazil:
- Top Industries: Manufacturing & Industrial, Technology & Software, Healthcare & Pharmaceutical
- Top Skills: ‘English’ is one of the top 10 skills Brazilian members have listed on their profiles, as many are likely doing business both throughout the Americas and worldwide.
- Passion for Soccer: Given our nation’s love of (and talent for) soccer, it’s not surprising that there are over 900 members who have ‘soccer’ in their current job title.
- Love of Music: While it may not be their main day job, over 1,500 members in Brazil are passionate about music, as they have ‘DJ’ in their current title.
