We know what you all must be thinking but Priyanka Chopra has not joined LinkedIn to look for a job. Pee Cee is a LinkedIn influencer. She’ll be joining a selected group of influencers like Prime Minister Narendra Modi, Kiran Mazumdar-Shaw (MD and Chairman, Biocon), Indra Nooyi (Chairman and CEO, Pepsico), Alan Joyce (CEO, Qantas), Oprah Winfrey (Chairman and CEO, Oprah Winfrey Networks) and many more eminent names.
When asked about joining LinkedIn, the actress said, “I’ve always had a penchant for business but am just beginning to give wings to my entrepreneurial ambitions. It’s a whole new experience. So, what better way than to connect with this vibrant community on LinkedIn to share and exchange thoughts and ideas.”
Pee Cee started her journey on the Employment-oriented website by posting, “Follow your instincts, believe in your uniqueness and never be afraid to leap into the unknown.” The article has her thoughts penned, where she has pondered over the “past 16 years of my professional life”. One of the lines in her article reads: “We all make plans for our lives but most often are too scared or embarrassed about our ambitions to go after it wholeheartedly. And that’s where it all falls apart.”
Akshay Kothari, Country Manager of LinkedIn India is very excited to have the actress on board! He expressed, “We are excited that Priyanka Chopra is going to share her unique perspectives with millions of professionals on LinkedIn, in India and worldwide. There’s so much we can learn from, and be inspired by her success, as she continues to chart new highs.” Priyanka will be joining global thought leaders who share their professional insights with LinkedIn members.
