Bring in your parents to work with you and say thanks for everything they’ve taught you along the way.

LinkedIn Bring In Your Parents Day is back on November 4, 2016

Ever had a hard time describing what you do at work to your parents? You're not alone, one third of parents don't understand what their children do for work. That’s why we created LinkedIn Bring In Your Parents Day. Last year more than 50 businesses opened their doors to more than 20,000 parents right round the world. November 4, 2016 marks the 4th year of the event…you can sign up to participate here.

If your parents aren't able to attend in person, this year there's many other ways to get involved in the excitement of the day. Click through the site to find out how.

We're encouraging everyone to get involved in Bring In Your Parents Day this year to say thank you for the countless ways they've supported you.

As with previous years, businesses across the world will open their doors for parents to see where their children work and what they do. Even if your company isn't signed up or your parents aren't able to join you in person, you can still get involved.

Did you know that 1 in 3 parents don’t understand what their child does for a living? Share what your parents think you do, or the best piece of career advice they've ever given you, on social media using #BIYP.
