Part of HPAA's "LinkedIn Tips and Traps"
If LinkedIn doesn't have a company page for what you
enter, settle for the blank gray logo -- as long as the
phrase isn't too similar to the name of one of the companies in
LinkedIn's company database. This is not recommended for variations
of HP, HPE, EDS, etc. Recruiters who are
looking for people from a particular company because of product
knowledge, process experience, or culture may not find you -- and if they do find you, may think that your profile
is a fake.
Hewlett-Packard or HP Inc:
Enter "HP" for the official HPI company page and
logo. Current "hp" logo with name
"HP" -- comes up only if you enter "HP" -- not if
you enter "Hewlett-Packard" or "HP
Inc." ("HP UK" includes people from all over the
world. Even if in the UK, this is not a good company to use -- a recruiter may not find you
-- and your profile already has your
geographic location anyhow.)
Hewlett-Packard Company founded 1939. [Enter
"HP" -- "Hewlett-Packard" is not in the LinkedIn company database.]
Date: November 1, 2015.-- renamed HP Inc
after the HPI/HPE split.
HPE: Enter "Hewlett Packard"
for the official HPE company page and logo. The wordless green rectangle
logo with "Hewlett Packard
Enterprise" as employer comes up if you enter "Hewlett Packard." (Note that
the company name is "Hewlett Packard Enterprise" -- singular,
not plural, and no
hyphen. <smile> Here's the
internal training video
Date: November 1, 2015 -- HPE
opened for business.
