LinkedIn's CEO Jeff Weiner has identified three qualities of people he most enjoys working with. His ideal candidate should fit into these three areas:
Dreaming big: people who are able to create a vision and think on a truly massive scale without limitations with the ability to
transform the trajectory of a company.
Getting their job done: the most capable people are not only able to create a vision, but know how to overcome challenges on the way to
achieve their goal.
Knowing how to have fun: people who are not only determined by their own agenda, but have a genuine commitment to upholding
LinkedIn's company culture and values, are team players, and don't take themselves too seriously.
Browne always has Jeff Weiner's recruitment principles in mind when he interviews a candidate. The candidate's answers to these questions help him develop better understanding of their
personality traits and how they match LinkedIn's core values.
