As you apply for an Earnest loan, you’ll notice that one of the ways we make our application process simple, efficient, and thorough is by viewing your LinkedIn profile.
Have you ever wondered why traditional banks and lenders don’t ask for this information? We believe that people are better and more trustworthy than other banks and lenders realize, and we can validate this for individuals by looking at more complete profiles of our clients. At Earnest, we love to see what you have accomplished and what you are striving to achieve as we work to help you invest in your future.
During our thorough review process we take career history and career potential into account, along with other credit and financial data. We view each applicant as an individual, not a number, and with this information we are able to offer better terms for your loan. Your LinkedIn profile is not just about finding a new job – it is about taking control of your online professional life. It is an easy way to host your professional profile, get credit for your accomplishments, connect with other professionals, improve job stability, and advance faster and bounce back quicker from any unexpected career changes.
All the loans we have financed at Earnest have been for people who have worked hard to invest in their future, which often requires an upfront cost. LinkedIn is a simple way to show the world that you are making that investment. We’re happy to help our clients who have put their best foot forward to start a new job or enter new stage in life, and now need a temporary loan to pay for a cross-country move, a loan to pay for a wedding venue, or a loan to pay for home improvement.
We are excited to connect with you to see how far you’ve come and where you’re going professionally, and we’re excited to help you get there.
