LinkedIn for Veterans – Free Premium Career Subscription and Eligibility

As part of LinkedIn’s commitment to help veterans connect with available jobs across America, they are offering U.S. veterans a free one-year Premium Careers subscription, including access to LinkedIn Learning. This is a $360/yr savings for you. You have to take advantage of this. In fact, if your serious about getting a new job, this should be your second step (we already mentioned that starting your LinkedIn profile should be step #1).

To be eligible for this offer, you must meet all of the following requirements:

  • Be a current or former U.S. military service member (non-US military are not eligible).
  • Have not used the LinkedIn veteran promotion previously (one promotion per service member).
  • You must not have a current LinkedIn Premium subscription.

Note: If you’re currently a Premium subscriber, cancel your subscription or let your free 30-day trial lapse before applying.
