How can members be classified under a certain company profile?
Changes to company profiles can be made by making changes to individual member profiles. XING members who work for this company are automatically identified by the system when they enter this company name as their current employer. The important thing here is which position you display alongside your name at the top of your profile (the respective box must be checked here under “Professional experience”).
To make things simpler we have also introduced the “I work at this company” button. Simply click on the company profile you which to be affiliated with. Then click on the “I work at this company button” and the name of the respective company will be transferred to your profile. You will then be listed as a company employee on the company profile some 24 hours after saving your changes. Please note: Freelancers are not counted as employees here. Tip: If you have not been identified as a current employee of the right company, please check whether you are using the correct company name and legal abbreviation (e.g. AG, GmbH, GbR) in your profile.
