Then click "sign up."

You can sign up using your LinkedIn account. The information on the sign-up form will be pulled over from your LinkedIn account, and you'll be able to sign in using your LinkedIn login in the future.

Once you've submitted the sign up form, you'll be sent a confirmation email that you must confirm in order to use your Riipen account!

Once your email is confirmed, be sure to fill in your profile information, your profile picture, and a banner picture. Employers on our platform can reach out to you, so this is good information to provide.
