Barbie, the ultimate entrepreneur, joins LinkedIn
She’s been a doctor, a chef, an astronaut and even a presidential candidate– and that’s just a small percentage of the positions Mattel’s Barbie doll has held over the course of her 55 year history.
To celebrate such a long and storied career, the makers of the iconic doll have just launched an official Barbie LinkedIn page to coincide with the introduction of the new “Entrepreneur Barbie.” Listing her current position as a “Dream Incubator,” the page also features networking tips, links to profiles of female entrepreneurs, and shares career advice.
Here’s a sample status: “While a one-page resume is best, I can’t seem to get mine under twenty. It’s just that when anything is possible, a girl is tempted to try everything she can.”
Wondering how you can be a first-degree connection with Barbie herself? Add her to your LinkedIn network here.
Mattel also shared this photo of the new Entrepreneur Barbie Times Square billboard on the official Barbie Instagram account.
