Industry is completed by the person who creates the LinkedIn Company Page. Some small businesses are not particularly precise in this and others are not careful in choosing the company at which they’re employed.

The biggest example here is Accounting. Accounting is alphabetically first and some careless companies and other “fake” companies are listed as accounting. This results in ample false positives when using Accounting as a filter.

Another fascinating phenomenon is that of “companies of convenience”. These loose affiliations of profiles all work non-traditional job titles (such as “unemployed”) at a myriad of loose pseudo-organizations such as the following:

These false positives are abated with the addition of another filter like “Job Title” or “Seniority Level”. These few duds are rare, but worth noting.
